Summer Garden Maintenance

Summer garden maintenance – What to do:

Garden neglect Summer Sussex

The British summer is not always kind to the garden, and extra care needs to be taken to ensure it is kept looking good and full of interest throughout the warmer months whatever the weather.  To complete the look of your garden and enjoy the space you have toiled so hard to create you will need some garden furniture to relax in after the hard work is finished.

Which plants to use

For a late-summer flowering garden, dahlias are a great choice.  They are easy to grow and will create a wide spread of flowers when they bloom, lasting for months.  If possible, dedicate an entire area to dahlias.

If you want to add a bit of height to your beds, plant verbena bonariensis.  It grows tall and looks very elegant, especially mixed with Gaura linheimeri.  It flowers from August to October.

Hydrangeas provide a rich and full addition to the garden, with their large mop-heads of dark red, which deepen to a plum or purple colour through the season.  The leaves of hydrangeas are also tinged with red, this too deepening with the passing of the months.  These easy to grow plants are also available in other flower colours.

A good choice with additional environmental benefits is Echinacea.  They are very fashionable at the moment, and come in a lot of new and different colours.  They will flower in late summer and last through the autumn.  They are also full of nectar and pollen, thereby encouraging the poor suffering bees to visit your garden.

Feeding your garden

It is essential that once the garden has been planted it is kept watered if there is little or no rain.  Too little water and the plants will not be able to survive.  Too much water, and the plants can rot or become prone to disease.

As a rule of thumb, if the soil is dry to around half an inch down, then water is needed.  Watering once a week should be sufficient if temperatures are in the mid-20s Celsius.  For temperatures higher than this, it might be as often as every other day.  Aim a watering can or hose to the base of the plants, although if it is exceptionally hot, a light sprinkling over the leaves will do no harm.  The optimum time for watering the garden is in the morning, the worst late at night, however, it is always best to water at whatever time you can manage, rather than not at all.

Maintenance

Of course, pretty plants alone will not make the garden attractive.  Weeds are going to pop up between the plants and these will need to be pulled out regularly.  If left, they will use up the resources the plants need to survive.  Safe chemical weed killers are easy to apply and take the hard work out of weeding.

The lawn will probably need mowing on a weekly basis and try to keep the height of the grass to about 1 inch.  In very hot weather, it is advisable to reduce the amount of mowing and allow it to grow a little more, to avoid over-stressing the grass.  It will also need to be watered, in just the same way and just as regularly as the other plants.

Fence and Gate Installation West Sussex

Fence Installation Services for West Sussex

 

TVG Landscaping are experiencing a busy period for Fence and Gate Installation West Sussex.

We have noticed that many customers are looking to replace old worn out and dangerous fencing instead of letting it deteriorate further.

We have also noticed a trend in the style of fencing customers are asking for. Customers seems to prefer closeboarded fencing, which is of longer lasting, stronger style fence compared to that of lap panels. There is a higher cost to the closeboard but does look much better and lasts longer. This is an ideal fence too for high winds.

 Fence and Gate Installation West Sussex

Closeboard fencing is made up on site, the erection of solid posts, usually 100mm x 125mm and with 2′ of the post in the ground, provides an excellent strong bespoke fence, that can easily be constructed to follow the contours of your garden.

We offer a fence installation service across West Sussex and East Hampshire borders, going further a field for that special project.

Within the fence installation service, we can remove the old fence and take to a recycling station, where they burn the wood for green energy.

Fence installation

TVG Landscaping also offer a fence repair service, alongside our fence installation service as above, so if you have a broken fence post, usually rotted at ground soil level, we can either replace this or install a concrete repair spur fixed to the post for longevity.

Call TVG Landscaping for a fence quotation, whether for a full replacement or a repair.

TVG Landscaping and their Fence Installation service use Bell Davies for their quality fence supplies.

Grass needs cutting?

Can I Cut Grass in Winter?

Grass still grows when the temperature is above 5 degrees Celsius, so if your average temperature is above this, grass still grows.

So, if the temperature is below this, on average, then do not cut BUT if the neighbour’s lawn looks better than yours, or you are trying to sell your property or even worse and the relatives are coming… then as long as it isn’t frosty, you can use your mower, on a HIGH setting to trim the grass.

If the temperature is above 5 degrees, then its fine to give the grass a little haircut, set the mower on a HIGH setting, and cut the lawn.

So, an answer to the question: Can I Cut Grass in Winter?

So don’t worry, Can I Cut Grass in Winter? Yes it its right and you WANT to do it, otherwise let nature take its course and cut it in the spring.

Winter Lawn Care

5 Questions You Should Ask Any Landscape Gardening Company

5 Questions You Should Ask Any Landscape Gardening Company

Many homeowners have adopted landscape gardening to beautify their lawns or backyards. This is lieu of the benefits that can accrue from such an exercise. Landscape gardening could be integral in increasing the value of the property in the future. This is because it makes the entire home look appealing to prospective buyers. Furthermore, when executed properly, landscape gardening can turn the residential property into a natural attraction. This is exhibited when wonderful creatures like birds and butterflies flock to the garden.

Homeowners can opt to conduct landscape gardening by themselves or seek the services of a landscape gardening firm. Nevertheless, the benefits of landscape gardening can only rear themselves when homeowners enlist the services of an experienced company. There are many firms that claim to be apt at landscape gardening, which makes it difficult for homeowners to find the right one. While scouring the market for the best company, there are some fundamental questions that homeowners must ask their desired companies. Some of these questions include:

1. Landscape Gardening – Samples of previous work

A company that claims to be experienced in landscape gardening must have a history of delivering good results. The only way homeowners can ascertain this is by asking for these companies’ samples of previous work. A firm worth its salt will be ready to produce portfolios detailing its previous successes in landscape gardening. Alternatively, they could refer the homeowner to their website where there is evidence of their past projects.

2. Landscape Gardening – Possession of an insurance cover

Homeowners seeking landscape gardening services must also ask the company if it has an insurance cover. The best landscape gardening firm must be in possession of an insurance cover that would cater for any mishaps that could occur. Usually, landscape gardening would involve a lot of heavy machinery and equipment. Homeowners need to have a peace of mind that they would not have to incur a lot of damages in case anything goes wrong. Hence, the issue of an insurance cover is a fundamental question that they must pose to these companies.

3. Landscape Gardening – The suppliers used by the company

Homeowners must also know about the suppliers that provide their desired company with its materials. It is inconceivable that all landscape gardening companies use the same type of supplier. The fact that each firm uses a different supplier means that there will be differences in the quality of their materials. By inquiring about the supplier, the homeowner can understand whether the quality of materials will reap the best results. This would be possible when they conduct additional research about the suppliers.

4. Landscape Gardening -Testimonials

Can I see your testimonials? This should be another fundamental question to ask the company. A reputable company should be more than willing to furnish clients with these testimonials from their past clients. The homeowner would be able to understand the quality of the company’s services judging from these testimonies.

5. Landscape Gardening – Any possibility of a guarantee

Homeowners can also question these companies on whether their work comes with a guarantee. If the company is genuine in its delivery of services, it would most certainly provide a guarantee. In this regard, homeowners must get an assurance of this guarantee by putting it in writing.
