Windsor lawns receive some TLC

Windsor Castle Berkshire LawnsThe Team at The Lawn Company have been performing a schedule of treatments to the lawns at Windsor Castle in Berkshire. These treatments have included a selective weed killer and a slow release soluble fertiliser. The contract pesticide applications have complimented the work of the Grounds and Gardens Department Staff who perform a fantastic job in maintaining the gardens for The Royal Household at this world famous Royal Residence.

It is a well known fact that the Royals are very keen on their gardens and strive to keep them in tip top condition, whether the lawns and gardens are visible to the public or not.

Their 'green' credentials are enviable. To tell you a funny story about the Royal lawns, many years ago when Managing Director of The Lawn Company, Mike Seaton was working for a well known turf care products company he sold a large batch of organic lawn fertiliser to the Queen's Grounds Manager at Buckingham Palace. The product was applied to the private residence garden lawns in the spring to give them a boost of growth. There quickly followed a telephone call to the Company from the Queen's Chief Privy enquiring "Her Majesty would like to know what that awful smell is coming from the lawns". Everyone prayed for rain to take the 'organic' smell of the poultry manure away from the Royal nose and the Company quickly sent the remaining product in stock away for a perfume treatment.

Some time later during a more recent light hearted conversation with the Buckingham Palace's Grounds Manager, Mike found out the real problem of the organic fertiliser application was a little more troublesome than first thought.....

What had happened was that the much loved Royal Corgis were out in the gardens rolling around on the naturally smelly organic fertiliser and bringing it and the smell of it back into the palace on their fur - ghastly!

Even the Queen has a problem of her dogs leaving a dog urine burn on the lawns. You can prevent these on your lawn by using Dog Rocks.
