Wow how hot has it been lately? Like most of the country, we’ve been enjoying the best of the balmy weather at HG Promotions, we’ve topped up our tans and been tending our garden as best we can.
One area of concern during the hot weather is lawn care. Left to dry out, turf soon starts to show signs of wear and tear and that’s a genuine worry.
We’ve been thinking about this and thought we’d share some of our lawn care tips with you, this way your turf should look just as good as ours!
This is what we do...
Cut back on cutting grass - For starters, we’d recommend leaving the grass a little longer than you would normally during hot weather, resist the temptation and cut the grass less frequently. Yes, this is an alien concept, especially if you like to keep the blades as short as possible but leave it an inch or so longer this should prevent the turf turning a horrible brown or yellow colour.
Raise those blades – One way to ensure you don’t cut the lawn too short is to raise the height of the blades on your lawnmower. They’re easy to adjust and once you have lifted the height it’ll stop you from being too enthusiastic with your lawn care regime.
Water during the evening – There’s no need to water your lawn too frequently during the daytime, all that moisture will simply be evaporated by the blazing hot sun. Leave watering until the evening when it starts to get cooler, use a sprinkler (as long as there are no hose pipe bans in place) and make sure the water penetrates right into the turf.
Prick the lawn – A good tip to ensure the water is penetrating right down into the soil is to gently prick the turf with a garden fork. Ideally you should be aiming to saturate the soil at a depth of around 4 inches, go round the turf pricking it in various locations prior to watering and give it a good drink!
Keep off the grass! Lastly, steer clear of the lawn once you have watered it, don’t trample over the turf, let the water sink into the soil. As the sprinklers do their thing sit back and enjoy the delights of your garden, nothing beats the sight of a green and lush lawn on a summer’s evening.
Enjoy the rest of the sunny weather folks and don’t forget to slap on the sun lotion!

Anyone undertaking home renovations should have the right equipment to get the job done. Not only is the right equipment essential for completing the work efficiently but, necessary for safety. Any home improvements that are to be made in elevated spaces must be completed with secure elevated platforms. Platform ladders are one of the surest ways to reach difficult and elevated positions.
When labouring at an elevated height, balance is essential. Not only will you need to keep any home improvement essentials like plaster and paint cans in an easy to reach position but, you need to be safe and secure when perched atop the ladder. For this reason platform ladders are essential.
Over the last few years there has been an exponential growth and demand for the domestic use of platform ladders. Traditionally employed solely for use in a commercial and construction setting, these ladders have become a firm favourite for domestic use.
The Benefits of Platform Ladders
The primary benefit of platform ladders is that are reliable, durable and above all else stable. They are more comfortable than a standard ladder, and feature a large platform ledge to stand. Many traditional ladders do not feature such a wide space. This may result in accidents.
The additional bonus if enjoyed a larger platform ledge is that this space allows you the opportunity to store those essentials for the job in hand. From paint cans and brushes to scrapers and a wealth of different tools, the space afforded by platform ladders is far superior to traditional ladders.
Platform ladders make any jobs all the more simple. This cannot be argued, however the safety offered by such ladders is another primary selling point. Their safety allows you to complete all work more proficiently as you needn’t be concerned with falling from the height. Platform ladders are designed with safety in mind. The steps, platform and general environment are all designed with safety in mind.
Platform ladders additionally feature a folding mechanism. This allows the ladders to be easily folded and stored in a compact space. They are generally reasonably lightweight and can be moved from one position to another with ease – yet another benefit and reason to use platform ladders.
Whether choosing to employ platform ladders outdoors or indoors you can rest-assured that they offer you superlative elevation solutions. Don’t opt for traditional ladders – platform ladders are a must.

Before you throw waste away this summer stop and think for minute, could you find a practical use for some of the products you are about to thrown in the bin? Sift through those waste items and we reckon you could reuse some of them in the garden, here are a few suggestions to start you off.
- Carpet remnants - Cut old carpet up into small sections and it makes a brilliant ‘kneeling pad’ to save wear and tear on your body. Place a piece of carpet on the ground and you’ll be able to tend to those borders in comfort, kneeling isn’t too bad when you have a spongy base to rest upon. Old carpet is good for weed suppressant too, lay it over borders, cover it in mulch or stones and your garden looks gorgeous and totally weed-free.
- Milk cartons – Here’s a clever tip if you want to create your own soil scoop for next to nothing. When you empty the contents of a large plastic milk container wash it out thoroughly then cut the bottom away at a 450 angle. Leave the handle intact and you have the perfect tool for scooping compost from bags straight onto your borders.
- Egg cartons – Keep your egg cartons for planting seeds in the future, line them up in your greenhouse and you have mini containers to nurture seedlings along prior to planning outdoors.
- Lollipop sticks – Get the kids involved with gardening, when they finish ice lollies ask them to clean and save the sticks. Use the sticks as plant markers, just remember to write on the sticks with a permanent marker pen or the ink could wash away and you won’t know what you have planted!
- Compost bags – Cut compost bags at the bottom or the top, empty the mulch over your borders and you are left with a sturdy sack that can be used to fill with garden waste. Save money on garden sacks, reuse fertiliser bags where you can, it’s a useful way to recycle and salvage stuff you’d normally tip into the bin.

As the weather warms up we’re all itching to get out into our gardens and enjoy them. If you really want to make the most of your garden during the summer months then springtime is the time to put the work in. A little forward planning and some hard work now means that you can enjoy the fruits of your labours in the summer.
- Get rid of weeds: No one wants to spend a hot summer’s day on their hands and knees digging out weeds. Get it done in spring then you won’t have to worry about it for the rest of the summer months.
- Give your lawn some TLC: Spring is the perfect time of year to begin working on your lawn. Use a granular feed and make the most of those April showers to get your lawn looking lush and healthy. When summer comes all you’ll need to do is keep it trimmed, and water it occasionally.
- Clean your patio: If you have a patio or decking area then now is the time to give it a clean. Remove any rubbish, dead leaves, fallen blossom etc and give it a blast with a jet wash to remove dried-on dirt and give it a new lease of life.
- Add a splash of colour: Plant some colourful summery flowers in pots to complement your perennials. Clematis, Nasturtium, Verbena, and Geranium are all beautiful yet fairly low maintenance summer flowers that will brighten up your garden.
- Grow your own: Plant things such as lettuce, carrots, potatoes, and strawberries now and you can enjoy your own home-grown food throughout the summer. Just imagine how nice a potato salad will taste with your own potatoes!
- Tidy trees up: Trim back any trees or large bushes that have become a bit overgrown, particularly those that block out the sun.
