FAQ’s

My lawn is in a bad state is it worth calling you or should I just replace it?

Few lawns are beyond help. You will be surprised at what our treatments and services can do for you.

When is it best to start lawn treatments?

I already have a gardener or garden maintenance contractor so why do I need Your service?

Is it safe for children or pets?

Don’t you need a licence to apply pesticides?

How much is this going to cost?

 It depends on the size of your lawn but to give you an idea our standard annual  programme consisting of four visits based on a 100 square  metre lawn will cost as little as

  £18 per visit inclusive of labour and materials.  That's just £6 per month for the standard annual programme!

Why do I need a lawn survey?

How can I help you?

 If you want to work with us to create a fine lawn then here are a few simple steps:


1. Cut your grass regularly but never too short as this will help the grass to retain moisture and keep it healthier for longer especially in dry spells.

2. Never cut the grass too short at any time of the year.

3. Do not cut the grass 2 days before or 3-4 days after our scheduled visits to help the treatments we apply work more effectively.

4. If conditions dictate then water your lawn but take care not to over water.

If you have any concerns at all about your lawn between our visits or simply want some advice then simply call us.

Work to improve your lawn can start at any time of the year so it doesn’t matter when you seek our help.  Some of the most productive treatments can be undertaken out of the growing season.

Yes and we have all the appropriate NPTC certificates for the safe application of any herbicides and pesticides used on your lawn.

Before giving any advice or making recommendations on treatments for your lawn we will carry out a survey.  This will include checking levels of surface thatch and soil compaction, identification of moss levels and weed types present. We also check for common pests and diseases.

We won’t blind you with science but armed with a few simple facts from the survey we can then sensibly discuss a programme for you and provide a quotation.

Our service is designed to complement your work in the garden.  Whether you do it yourself or employ a gardener we simply offer additional help and expertise specifically for your lawn.  

Yes providing young children and pets are kept off the lawn immediately following application of liquid treatments.  Once dry it is perfectly safe to enjoy the lawn in the usual way.  To be safe we recommend that smaller pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs be kept off the lawn for 8-10 days or we can agree with you to leave part of the lawn untreated for them.

Allowing us to treat your lawn also means that you do not have to keep fertilisers and undiluted chemicals in store where small children can get their hands on them.
