Drought Warnings, happy customers - Spring lawn care treatments, Lawn Disease's & Pests in bognor regis, felpham, emsworth, Porchester, lee-on-solent, chichester and southsea
Its so gratifying when a customer takes the trouble to send a picture of their lawn because they are happy, this one near Porchester gets a lot of use, was full of weeds and very thin when we started treating it.
As a small business it often seems we are constantly writing cheques and paying invoices and, as the accounts team is me, the pain of the money going out feels personal!! There is an exception and that's when we are rewarding customers for recommending our services.
We have spent a few hours this morning writing letters and envelopes to send out some M & S gift cards to customers who have recommended us to their friends or family. Its fantastic that they have such confidence in us, so the least we can do is give a little reward that can get a bottle of bubbles to enjoy in the garden when the weather is good.
I love it when its warm and dry, there is no better job when the sun is shining and we have had some fantastic weather on the south coast these past few weeks. I spent Easter with the "in laws" in Leeds and because we work outside and are a little tanned already this year the first question on arrival "have we been away on holiday", the answer "you might not recognise it, but we get something called the sun on the south coast" !
Whilst the sun shining is good and makes me happy, its mid March since many areas have seen any significant rainfall and that means many lawns are starting to show signs of stress. If you can get the sprinkler or hosepipe out to give the grass a good drenching once a week it will help and if the dry spell keeps up raise the blade on the mower a little to help reduce evaporation.
The variable temperatures gradients are causing a number of lawn fungus outbreaks so if you see anything amiss with the lawn please pick up the phone and let us know, it far easier to deal with a an outbreak early and before any serious damage has occurred.
Soil temperatures are now perfect for our "Ultimate Lawn Moss Control" treatment and the visible results as the moss breaks down and the grass spreads to dominate is so much gentler, then blackening and the stress of scarification and raking.
As always if you have a question or concern about your lawn, get in touch by email or phone.
