The holidays are a great time to catch up with family and friends while indulging in all the season has to offer.

Something you don’t want to have on your mind, however, is burst or frozen pipes at your business...

Tennis, Pimm’s, outbursts from John McEnroe and a sing-along with Sir Cliff Richard – just a few of the things we associate with Wimbledon. Unfortunately, rain is another.

Bubba Watson’s dramatic victory in the Masters earlier this month signalled the start of the golf majors season. If you watched it wishing your local club’s greens were in as good shape as Augusta’s, you’re not alone! We asked Derek Robson, head greenkeeper of the St Andrew’s championship Duke’s course, to tell us how it’s done and how water helps keeps the course in tip-top condition.
