The Essentials for a Lush Green Lawn
Achieving the dream of lush green, weed, and moss-free lawns while simultaneously nurturing vibrant wildflower meadows may seem like a daunting task, but with careful planning and a year-round strategy and with The English Lawn Company it’s entirely possible to realise your vision by using our experience and knowledge.
The English Lawn Company tailor their service to the customer needs. We carry out soil tests and advise on the best treatment for your lawn. This could be a complete renovation or just removing weeds and moss. We aim to give our customers a beautiful lawn which is lush green and weed and moss free.
We offer a set of 3 programmes again suited to the lawn and the customer and these provide a year round service which protects the grass from weeds and pests
We start by testing the soil to determine its pH and nutrient levels and work towards amending the soil to create a balanced and healthy foundation for your grass.
We only use grass seed and other products such as top dressing and fertiliser which is top quality and has been thoroughly tested and produces excellent results every time.
By creating the best conditions for your new lawn, it has every chance to succeed, and you only have to maintain the mowing and watering regime. The English Lawn Company will assist you at this stage to get the best results.
The English Lawn Company can then undertake an agreed programme designed specifically for your lawn to keep it looking in tip top condition throughout the year.
Treatment 1 – Spring Fertiliser. Promoting plant growth this gives your lawn the kick start it needs for the new year ahead.
Treatment 2 – Weed Treatment. This involves using a selective herbicide to rid your lawn of weeds and gives the grass the best conditions to grow. If required, an Organic feed will be given to stimulate growth.
Treatment 3 – Summer Feed. Applied June-July we add an Organic feed. At this time, we will also consider a wetting agent to
combat any prolonged hot spell
Treatment 4 – Autumn Feed. A mix of organic granular feed and bio-stimulants to focus on promoting root growth as well as a moss deterrent product of liquid iron.
Treatment 5 – Winter Feed and Moss Control.
Liquid treatment of feed and iron to feed the lawn and ready it for the cold winter months
This scheme is the Basic scheme with the addition of aeration once or twice a year.
Using a specialist machine, aeration is beneficial for lawns because it helps improve soil structure, promotes better root growth, and enhances the overall health of the grass.
By perforating the soil with small holes, aeration allows for better air exchange, nutrient absorption, and water penetration. This helps alleviate soil compaction, encourages the development of a robust root system, and ultimately leads to a healthier and more resilient lawn.
Aeration is an essential for the discerning customer who wants their lawn to stand out.
This is our premium package and includes everything within the Enhanced scheme with the addition of heavy scarification overseeding, top dressing and fertilisation.
Any lawn levelling will also be completed.
Being a premium package, we also include any weed and moss control on any hard surface.
