It’s that time of year again when lawn mowers get dusted off and that wonderful smell of freshly cut grass floats on the breeze evoking happy memories. What better way to boost the mood of your clients, colleagues or customers than sparking this feeling when they walk through your grounds?
To make sure they do, Envirocare has created a range of great value packages to ensure that your grounds are maintained at their best all year round. In April, it is important to make sure that grassed areas in public open spaces are well prepared for the year ahead.
Making grass thick, green and hard-wearing in spring
Because we want your grassed areas to look great and be hard-wearing, we start with a good spring clean to remove leaves and fallen debris.
We keep grass length longer for the first cut, then get progressively shorter until we reach the optimal length. Spring is also the time to tackle any bare spots or establish new areas of lawn.
Once we’ve mown your grassed areas a couple of times, aeration can often help by perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to reach the grass roots.
Making your grassed areas fit for purpose
Of course, different grounds have different objectives;
- Business parks and around offices need the grounds clean and green.
- Care home clients want them to look great and be an attractive place for residents to get some fresh air.
- Schools and parks can often have competing objectives: helping sports areas recover from winter use and making sure that other areas are ready for multiple activities in spring and summer.
- For clients that need a more manicured, striped lawn, extra care and attention is required.
At Envirocare, we pride ourselves on having the professional expertise and experience to ensure we can meet all these objectives.
