Our treatment plan provides your lawn all it needs to keep it in the best condition. We use professional products formulated
to give exactly the right nutrients at the right time.
The LawnQuest Programme
We use quality fertilisers and weed control applications only available for the professional. Our composite programme of lawn treatments, provide the best products at the right time of year at the correct analysis. Our focus is on providing what the lawn needs to grow in a healthy way - not over stimulating growth which results in the long term in a weak disease prone lawn.
Spring (March to May)
To get your lawn off to a good start this treatment comprises of an application of granular fertiliser, to improve the colour and density of the grass and encourage rooting and strong growth. An application of a selective herbicide is also applied to control emerging broad leafed weeds such as dandelions, daises and plantains.
Early Summer (May to July)
Our second visit to your lawn, to apply a controlled release fertiliser to improve the colour and density of the grass and encourage a strong healthy lawn. This visit also includes an application of another selective, liquid herbicide to tackle broad leafed weeds as well as targeting other hardier varieties.
Summer (July to Sept)
Our third treatment includes an application of a special ‘slow release’ no-scorch granular fertiliser which assists your lawn to cope with the unpredictable weather of the late summer and allows the grass to continue healthy plant growth and rooting. Special emphasis is now given to the more difficult weeds such as trefoils, woodrush, speedwells with a specialist, selective herbicide that targets the hardier types of lawn weeds.
Autumn (Oct to Dec)
The Autumn/Winter treatment prepares the lawn for the winter months and helps reduce the growth of moss. This treatment will boost colour but does not stimulate winter growth (which could encourage lawn diseases).
Winter (Jan to Feb)
Due to optimum conditions for re-growth, moss is becoming more of a problem in domestic lawns. This Winter tonic primarily focuses on the control of moss, nutrients for root development, disease resistance, toughening of the grass and maintenance of a dark, lush colour.
For turf, aeration is a necessary maintenance practice. Hollow Tine aeration removes thousands of cores/plug from the turf/soil up to 2-4
inch soil penetration. Hollow tine aeration benefits include;
• Compaction relief
• Promotes strong growth
• Thatch reduction
• Improved root growth
• Assists the passage of soil air and water supply
(We can remove the cores left behind if you wish but this will incur an extra cost.)
Scarification – De-thatching
Scarification is a very important part of the lawn treatment programme for most lawns. Allowing thatch to build up in a lawn causes
Thatch is the term used to describe the layers of organic fibrous material found in turf. Thatch build up naturally occurs in turf and cannot be entirely prevented.
Scarification can mechanically reduce the thatch levels in the lawn allowing air moisture to penetrate the soil profile leading to a productive soil environment, the process also encourages the grass plant to tiller and thicken up the sward. The scarification process can be useful in controlling moss and creeping weeds. This is usually carried out once or twice through the year. We will advise you if this needs to be done on your lawn.
