Lawns are fertilized using only the best products only available to the trade. The first application would be Late March, early April, and would be a three in one mixture to tackle moss, weeds and green up the lawn. The second application would be in June when a high nitrogen mixture would be used to ensure a healthy colour. The final application would be in the Autumn to ensure there are no signs of moss and to harden the lawn over the harsh winter period.
For tired and neglected lawns we also provide a lawn scarification service which is normally carried out in late March or early September. For the best results we apply lawn sand or an appropriate moss killer two weeks prior to the scarification work. Depending on the severity of the outcome, it may be necessary to apply a top dressing of soil, seed and additional fertilizer. The scarifier's we use have blades which remove all moss and thatch form the lawn.
Flowers borders and bedding areas are hoed on a regular basis to remove weeds and unnecessary growth. We adopt a very old fashioned method of tending theses areas which is rarely seen nowadays. We dig over theses areas during the winter months to produce a good tilthy soil. This in turn allows the plants and shrubs to promote new healthy root systems as the soil they are growing in is light and airy, rather than compacted and hard. We also apply plant fertilizer and organic compact to all plants and shrubs as and when required.
Hedges are cut to the required height as and when necessary using professional petrol driven machinery and the necessary ladders and safety equipment to perform the work safely.
SHRUBS & BUSHES
Shrubs and bushes are pruned to promote healthy growth when necessary. We aim to establish definition amongst the shrubs to ensure that each one has enough space to develop healthily and not complete for existence. We specialize in rose cultivation and ensure that they are sprayed with insecticides and herbicides every two weeks and fed at least three times during the growing season with appropriate fertilizer and compost. We adopt a certain pruning method which guarantees that the roses do not age and remain healthy.
A must for manicured gardens! We take extra care to maintain these beautiful specimens and prune them using only the best and sharpest tools. Regular pruning promotes new healthy growth and produces a denser plant.
