The key to getting lawns into their optimum condition, and then keeping them that way is simple. Do the work at the correct time of year, with the best materials, equipment and techniques available. Below is an outline of how we spread the tasks throughout the year, to ensure that we are working with nature and the weather and not battling them!
The 5 key elements of a complete Lawn Treatment programme
Along with moss, weeds are the greatest problem in lawns. We use professional products to control even the most stubborn weeds, with up to 3 applications per year. All our weedkillers are ‘non-residual’ meaning there is no toxin build up in the soil.
Moss thrives in shade, areas of poor nutrition, waterlogging, compaction and very close mowing. Effective control requires a combination of mechanical and chemical applications. Our very important winter treatment is aimed directly at moss control.
To keep a lawn in good condition it is almost certain that a sensible application of well balanced fertiliser is required. At Grasshopper we use the most modern materials available to ensure effective and safe application at all times of year, without resorting to excessive use of nitrogen.
