The Secret to a Beautiful lawn...

by MarK Keevil

...revealed with the help, advice and expertise of the UK’s leading lawn treatment company. GreenThumb specialise in lawn care treatments and are the original lawn treatment provider in the UK with over 25 years experience. We are the UK’s leading lawn treatment company and now look after the lawns of over 450,000 customers through our network of 220 branches nationwide. Here are six tips on how to keep your lawn looking beautiful throughout the summer:

1.

Grass is made up of 93per cent water and needs to be watered to survive. Watering your lawn for just 20 minutes a day, three times a week is enough to keep your lawn green throughout the summer. It costs around £1 a week if you are on a meter. 2. Try to water lawns in the evening when the temperature is lower and the sun low in the sky. GreenThumb have created the Oasis Treatment Programme, a water conserver that can cut down the amount of water needed for the lawn by up to 80per cent. 3. Millions of homeowners actually cut their lawn too short, which leaves the grass stressed and at risk of

disease. For a healthy lawn you need to mow your grass no lower than 1¼ inches long. Make sure your lawnmower is regularly serviced and don’t fill it on the lawn or you’ll risk spilling petrol on the grass which can kill it. 4. More homeowners complain about moss on their lawn than any other problem. When moss is present, it’s often a sign that the grass isn’t as healthy as it should be. One cause is thatch - leftover grass cuttings - which allows water to collect on the surface and provides the perfect breeding ground for moss. GreenThumb recommends scarifying your lawn to allow the grass to grow healthily. 5. Make sure your lawnmower is regularly serviced and don’t fill it on the lawn or you’ll risk spilling petrol on the grass 6. GreenThumb’s new treatment programmes will get your lawn into perfect shape this year. With discounts of up to 22% and the option to spread the cost over the 12 months with Direct Debit, the ability to have a beautiful lawn has never been easier or more cost effective to achieve.

www.rosemarycunningham.co.uk 25 YEARS IN HEALTHCARE

New Clinic

What is Bowen Technique? Free Children’s Bowen Therapy Clinic opens in Southend! Do you have or know a child with health problems? We’re delighted to announce that a Children’s Bowen Therapy Clinic will open in Southend on 14 September 2012! We will be available every other Friday at the Therapy Life Centre in Prittlewell Chase. There are 40 such clinics around the UK which are funded solely by donations from parents. Tom Bowen, who developed this gentle technique, is credited with helping many children in his local community. In the same tradition, free Bowen clinics have sprung up wherever there are Bowen Therapists who volunteer their time, fortnightly in our case. Children need to be booked in, so please phone in advance. Bowen Technique has traditionally been used to treat children with many conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, Autism, breathing problems and poor sleep. When we treat children, parents often see improvements very rapidly. We often see babies with bronchiolitis who have been in hospital and have ongoing coughs, wheezing and continual coughs and colds..

A Bowen treatment is a sequence of gentle rolling moves over muscles and soft tissue, to persuade the body to start its own healing process, adjust and rebalance. The Bowen moves gently relax tight muscles (even tiny babies can have tense muscles) and your child is often more relaxed and sleeps better. When we treat a child, we read a book or play at the same time and each session takes just a few minutes. We often do some Bowen moves on mummy, daddy and the toys too! My daughter, Ava is 9 months old had been suffering with colds, runny nose, chest infections, and was using an inhaler for asthma. I went to visit Rosemary and after 3 sessions I am delighted to say it is like having a different baby! She has not had coughs or colds since and her breathing is brilliant, I have not used the inhaler once. Lauren Parker Clare, mum of twins Evie and Isla says “We would definitely recommend Bowen as we’re amazed and pleased how much it helped the girls. The whole family now sleep well and are much healthier.”

Please get in touch if we can help your family. Tel: 01702 558623 to make a booking or for more information. Rosemary Cunningham, Nicky Wybrow, Jeanne Diamond and Kevin Jefferson. Bowen Therapists.
