The perfect start to our lawn care programme. The granular spring feed is a slow release fertiliser which revitalises your lawn after a harsh winter. The fertiliser is designed to last 2-3 months meaning better value for money and giving the lawn-controlled bursts of nutrients. We would advise not to mow for 7 days after this treatment.
Our weed control and liquid feed works perfectly together. Sprayed at the same time, your weeds are treated whilst your lawn gets a top up on nutrients. Our professional herbicide acts quickly to start the process of getting rid of the weeds and results can normally be seen within 7 days. We ask that pets and children are kept off the treated areas for 2-3 hours whilst the lawn treatments dry.
By the summer you should start to see a big difference with your lawn following our previous treatments. It is important that your lawn isn't cut as short as you would normally to protect the grass from the heat. If we do get prolonged dry spells you should consider watering your lawn. The summer fertiliser is specially formulated to slowly release nutrients meaning you won't have to mow as much. We would advise not mowing for 7 days after this treatment.
Our Autumn Feed lawn treatments prepares and settles the lawn down for winter. It is very important that your lawn is bedded down in the right way to minimise the risks of disease and to encourage root development which is critical for summer periods. We would advise keeping children and pets off the lawn for 2-3 hours whilst the products dry.
Towards the end of autumn, you might start to see moss creeping into the lawn. Due to there being more moisture and less light, this gives moss the perfect environment to grow in. Moss does not have a root structure, it relies on the shade and moisture to survive. Our moss control treatment is not only designed to get rid of the moss but also to improve the durability and strength of your lawn. We advise to keep off the lawn for 2-3 hours whilst the lawn treatments dry.
One of the most important services that we provide in our lawn care programme are lawn aerations. Alongside our lawn treatments, there are so many benefits to having your lawns aerated. Firstly, your lawns root systems will grow deeper meaning that the lawn can access moisture deeper below the surface. This means that during hotter periods in the summer, the lawn won't show signs off drought. Other benefits include root zone decompaction which improves drainage, your lawn is also less likely to be targeted by fungal diseases and moss. With our aeration the quoted price will include top dressing and seed for the bare areas.
Over time lawns build up a layer of thatch. Whilst small amounts of thatch are healthy for the lawn, larger amounts of thatch cause stress on the lawn due to the rooting systems being limited to the supply of nutrients and water. By scarifying away the rubbish, we allow the lawn to breath again and give the healthy grass space to grow. The lawn will look in a worse condition than when we started the scarification but normal recovery times are normally 4-6 weeks with the correct after care. We include aeration, seed, top dressing and after care visits within the price of your scarification as part of the lawn care package.
We all have the frustrating task of weeding our driveways and gravel areas. This can be done by hand but the time it takes added with how quick the weeds grow back leads to a very frustrating situation. Our patio and hard surfaces treatment saves you all the time and hassle. With two treatments a year, your patio and hard surfaces will look fresh and clear of weeds and moss.
