Looking back @ Daisy Dell - Malton Ave Community Project

We often look back in December over the year, so this year we've take a look back over the decade! 

A recent conversation mentioned a successful community project we undertook to improve a derelict garage site -

back in 2010-11 where we planted orchards and Bolton's 1st Crop Circle! 

We also ran a couple of Community Workshops.  Here are the project photos

Driveway Installation - it's all in the preparation for heavy duty 2" thick paving stone!

Before and after!

These photos were taken before and during this driveway installation commenced in January.

Construction required installation of services before the heavy duty base was installed,

and 2.5" thick natural stone paving was installed on a bed of concrete.

A great looking lawn is no accident!

Much of the hard work is done in the Autumn and Winter!

When it's done right, this is the result.....

Looking after lawns is not just about regular mowing -  seasonal scarification, vertidraining / spiking, moss and fertiliser treatments are all critically important.

Perfect timing of operations will also ensure the sward is at is best in the growing season.  It's a bit late (but better than nothing) to start watering when the lawn has already started to get scorched and die off.....

Scarification will remove a lot of the thatch and moss....click on thumbnail below to see what comes out!

If your lawn's not looking great or is full of moss and thatch, please feel free to call our fully qualified green-keepers for a free consultation and quotation!

Lee & Anita both attended Pesticide Training Courses PA2 last month for use of our new highway legal tractor mounted boom sprayer.  This allows us to spray larger areas and grounds including weed control in fields and paddocks.  It also allows us to get around larger sites quickly, spot treating weeds in hard surfaces paving and highways.

Our ride on machinery includes diesel powered mower which is ideal for cutting large lawn areas and sports areas such as football pitches.

We've undertaken lots of varied work this winter from high level weed removal on buildings to tree felling and lots of lawn scarification and seeding.
