At this time of year we have the season of long grasses and late perennials. The garden can look tired now, this is perfectly normal, roses need deadheading, feed for pots and baskets and beds, you will still have weeds, this is normal too, just remember if the time is put in it will look better:
• Watering, don’t forget the plants, we have not had a massive amount of rain, I may regret saying this!
• Hedges, we have been inundated with requests for hedges to be done so we really are on a run at the moment, if you need any hedge work please get in touch.
• Ponds, keep an eye on certain plants taking over, if you require any assistance with this or just advice on what to do before the end of the summer, we can help.
• Hard landscaping, look out for the new section of Mow’n’Blow we are already booked in advance and welcome new enquiries.
July is well under way and finally the mowing is starting to calm down, and we are starting to think about autumn lawn works already. We have had some very satisfied customers and would like to thank you all for wanting our services and the feedback really helps us plan ahead and maintain for next year. So a big ‘thank you’ to all.
