JULY 2018 www.landscapeandamenity.com A coalition of heavyweight organisations chose the longest day to launch a fresh appeal to the UK's political leaders to safeguard the future of the nation's parks and greenspaces. It was a timely decision given the glorious weather the majority of the country basked in on June 21 as people took advantage and enjoyed maximising their time outdoors. Drawing support from organisations in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, the coalition's latest campaign is aimed at the leaders of the main political parties and sets out clear objectives for them all to ensure the right level of funding and resources is made available to keep parks and green spaces open and an important community asset. It signals a busy summer for the industry as a whole. Whereas many industries and sectors go through something of a summer lull, our industry goes into overdrive. Whether it is the annual summer of sporting excellence – this year the World Cup in Russia is showcasing UK groundscare expertise, plus we have our usual world class tennis and cricket events – or companies highlighting high quality new products and services, the next few months will be an extremely busy time. Indeed, with visitor registration for SALTEX 2018 already open, the exhibition halls already filling up and the seminar programme being developed, the busy summer months will be followed by a busy autumn and winter too. This month we have our Professional Groundscare supplement, with Jane Carley focusing on sports turf maintenance, as well as special spotlights on Line Marking and Top Dressers and Spreaders. Elsewhere we look at Weed and Pest Control, along with our usual mix of industry news, views and product launches. Enjoy the summer. Enjoy being busy. But always plan ahead and look to the future.

We penetrate the soil beyond the root zone to a depth of one metre then inject 100psi of high pressured, compressed air into the ground. Whilst the probe is inserted into the ground, a natural underground void is created and then back fi lled with Terramol to the surface, creating a permanent drainage soakaway. www.apexsoilsolutions.com info@apexsoilsolutions.com Call us: 0800 999 9910
