Last Cuts Of The Year
With all the rain and the frost over the last two weeks, the team have been unable to get on the lawns to cut them and clear the last remaining leaves. Yesterday the main Nuffield lawn had dried out sufficiently for it to be cut for the last time, but first all the twig debris had to be collected and leaves blown from around the trees in preparation for the ride on mower. With rain forecast and warmer temperatures Joss fed the lawn with 'Marathon Autumn Sport', a slow release, granular autumn and winter fertiliser to promote stronger root development over the next three months.
After feeding the Nuffield lawn it was time to give the banks and quad their last cut of the year. All the lawns have now had their final cut and look immaculate for the coming college close down.
