Today I’d like to introduce you to one of Green Art’s Care and Development Team clients. This is Sue in her element in her beautiful cottage garden in Ewelme. I met with her to chat all things green on our recent monthly care visit to her garden.
Whilst a lush green lawn may be the aim, you may be surprised to read that it is really important to give established lawns little or no water during drought periods. Lawns will turn brown during a drought and it would be easy to assume they had died. However, did you know that many lawn grasses go into a dormant phase during extreme heat and when it does rain again, as you are probably noticing, most lawns will recover well?
The careful insect ‘midst his work I view,
ow from the flowers exhaust the fragrant dew,
With golden treasures loads his little thighs,
And steer his distant journey through the skies.
