Weed Control

Nutrition rich lawn

There are dozens of common weeds which naturally occur in our English lawns. Our damp fertile environment in the UK often creates the perfect conditions for new weed seeds to germinate. If left to Mother Nature, lawns can be overcome by weed infestation.

The odd weed or two should not offend us as they will not cause our lawns to fail and are easily dug out or spot treated as they appear. As part of our annual lawn care programme we carry out weed control in the most environmentally friendly we can using the minimum amount of chemical possible, which usualy means one treament per year of selective herbicide and spot treatment thereafter if required. We never carry our blanket weed control unnecessarily and some of our long standing clients rarely need weed treatment as they simply tease out the weeds as they appear. Most varieites of weeds are currently controllable other than Speedwell and Field Woodrush.
