First day of summer today

Summer Lawn Care - Today is the first day of summer!  Time to have nice thoughts of holidays and sunshine and leaving the home chores behind for a well earnt family break. 

Glastonbury Music Festival opens it's doors tomorrow so maybe it will rain this week resulting in the customary mud bath for festival goers.   The tennis at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon started yesterday with the new roof being used to shield the players and spectators from the frequent rain showers and Henman Hill has been closed to spectators through fear of health and safety issues with the slippery slope - just crazy!  Some of the days at Royal Ascot Race Course were a bit of a wash out, especially Ladies Day.

Rainfall at this time of the year is ideal for gardeners and in particular lawns and if you have not done so already, now is the time to apply a selective weed killer to your lawns and also a second application of granular lawn fertiliser to help the lawn get in great shape over the summer months.  As the lawn is the biggest area of a garden, it makes sound sense to have a great lawn!
