Why have I got weeds in my lawn?
Weeds seeds will be carried into a lawn from a number of different sources: from birds over head, cats, dogs or other mammals that roam freely or from the people carrying them on their cloths or footwear. A seed will develop into a full blown weed unless unchecked. Some weeds are low growing and will be unaffected by the action of a lawn mower such as Lesser Trefoil and so spread until dominating a lawn.
What can be done to reduce weeds?
Greensleeves use an herbicide that has more than one active ingredient and so will kill a broad range of lawn weeds. We are usually able to reduce by more than 70% the amount of common weeds in your lawn. Weeds are best treated when they are actively growing, which is usually any time from April through to June and then again in September and October. Hand weeding can be a very difficult task and in some cases, such as dandelions, can actually worsen the weed problem. Some are a little more troublesome but we are confident that we are able to correctly identify them and reduce or control your lawn weed problem completely.
