What the press are saying about us

We have already covered the Times Online and their coverage of the 'spoof' awards but here is the link.

Landscape Juice - Philip Voice, according to his bios is a life long gardener and he certainly has posted a nice bit of coverage, in his own words of course, about how we have tickled the ribs - the full poke comes next year - of The Royal Horticultural society.

The STRI have covered our launch too and even given over some space for a little write up.

Greener grass ahead with launch of Lawn Society

The Lawn Society (http://www.lawnsociety.org.uk), launching in May 2007, provides expert independent lawn care advice and offers lawn lovers an opportunity to share suggestions and answers to common conundrums.

Founder Mike Seaton is a fellow of the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) and has identified a need for an unbiased source of practical and technical information for those who nurture and love the British lawn.

Seaton believes the general public has few places to turn for the right advice on how to best establish and care for a lawn. He explains: "Information associated with products is not always comprehensive, and while ‘the lawn’ may be the largest part of a garden, it can be neglected by garden experts and the media."

Seaton claims his advice, in addition to public discussion forums, will help dispel lawn care myths and increase the pleasure derived from the grassy area by professional and amateur gardeners alike. As the website develops, it will include monthly maintenance guides and detailed diagnoses of common turf problems including pests, diseases and weeds.

Interest in environmental matters means enthusiasm for lawns and grassed areas is increasing, according to Seaton. He says: "Healthy, desirable grasses absorb atmospheric toxins and convert carbon dioxide to oxygen. Green roofs are encouraged by some urban planners, while wildflower meadows and rough grass are areas back in favour. Each type of ‘lawn’ comprises different grass species with individual maintenance needs and The Lawn Society will embrace all aspects of grassed area care."

Annual membership of The Lawn Society costs from £25."
