waking up to a new spring!
march, april & may are busy, crucial months of the year
After the distressing conditions that Winter throws at our lawns, shrubbery and trees, these early growing months here in Pembrokeshire are key to your garden's year-long health. The correct treatment in spring, especially for grassed areas, is key to development and growth, and can significantly reduce potentially costly problems later in the year.

lawns & grassed areas
Promoting healthy spring growth is key to the long-term development of a healthy lawn.
Just a Mow suggests the application of suitable balanced fertiliser (lawn feed), plus a broadleaf weed treatment. Spring is also the perfect time to 'overseed'. . . sowing additional seed onto an existing lawn to improve grass density.
An early aeration will inhibit moss and help oversown grass seed to have direct contact with the soil.
These two treatments can be combined, with a light top dressing of soil which is brushed or raked in to the surface of the turf to aid germination and promote thatch decomposition.
March is the ideal time for both formative and remedial cutting of evergreen hedges in Pembrokeshire; before they have been allowed to grow out of control, and in advance of native wild birds taking up their nesting residence for the year! Early hedge cutting is crucial to bring evergreens back into useful shape and prevent them from becoming a nuisance.
Having Just a Mow remove smaller branches within the crown in early spring will produce a lower density of foliage in the summer, allowing more light to pass through the tree and reducing the 'sail effect'. . . whilst leaving the overall size or shape of the tree intact.
