We have started our Spring cultural programme of lawn renovation. Our teams are out scarifying and aerating lawns ready for the summer.

It’s always worth going the extra distance and over seeding with new grasses to even the consistency of colour,  grass type and texture.
We only use quality seed from one of the world’s leading producers, which gives us a rapid establishment with extreme wear tolerance and recovery from usage. Other benefits include;

  • Very fast establishment
  • Extremely fine-leafed for the species
  • Superior wear tolerance and recovery
  • Fast establishment
  • Can handle very close mowing
  • Excellent early spring growth


We also stock grass seed of different varieties for sale in our Greener Gardens Shop

This is what the Greener Garden team were learning with the Institute of Groundmanship  on a sunny January morning on a Leicestershire Golf course .

We teamed up with Lawns One, Green Stripe  and other independent lawncare operators to further develop our understanding of grass and how professional turf management practices can be incorporated into our treatment practice and more importantly our recommendations for the right treatment at the right time.

Last month we mentioned the importance of leaf collection to avoid them smothering and killing your grass. You can make this job easier by using your mower to collect the leaves, and give the lawn a light trim at the same time. This will make the grass look more even and improve your lawn and house kerb appeal.

The best advice is to remove leaves regularly throughout the autumn period to avoid damage. Leaving the leaves on the lawn until they’ve finally all fallen from the trees may seem like a good way to deal with the problem, but it isn’t. The longer leaves lay around, the thicker they accumulate the greater the damage that will occur to your grass. Regular raking and mowing are the best ways to ensure a healthy lawn come spring.

 
So keep your mower ready for a quick winter cut and leaf collection, after all, the grass is enjoying the current weather conditions with gentle grass growth.

When you are doing this, keep an eye out for moss in your lawn, moss just loves these autumn conditions.  We are currently treating many lawns with our special lawn conditioner and moss control. However, many lawns suffer from thatch and compaction issues,  which needs to be tackled mechanically e.g. aeration & scarification.  If you’re feeling your lawn could be better and would like some advice this autumn or next spring, call us on 0115 837 8439.

Remember a great looking lawn next spring starts now!

Just mention the word “autumn” and images of brightly coloured leaves dancing in a crisp breeze jump to mind. So does the image of those leaves falling gracefully to the ground covering your lawn and garden potentially leaving an unsightly mess. In nature, these leaves would slowly decay on the forest floor, returning vital nutrients to the earth. But left on drives, path and patios they become a slippery mat. Left on your lawn, they can smother and kill your grass.

 
The fact is fallen leaves create a barrier over the lawn. A leaf mat traps moisture, inhibits sunlight and harbours insects and diseases that can kill patches of even the healthiest grass. Sometimes Mother Nature lends a helping hand by blowing a sweeping breeze that carries your leaves over to the neighbour’s garden. But beware: That same breeze is probably blowing more leaves onto your lawn too.

Leaving the leaves on the lawn until they’ve finally all fallen from the trees may seem like a good way to deal with the problem, but it isn’t.

Regular raking and mowing/mulching are the best ways to ensure a healthy lawn come spring.

If you do run into problems, don't despair we can help.
