Is your lawn looking patchy or uneven in colour? Is your grass not growing as well as you would like? Or perhaps your lawn feels spongy underfoot? All of these are signs of a moss and thatch invasion on your lawn. Our experts will be able to fully assess your lawn and advise you on the best course of treatment to get your lawn healthy and thriving again.

Intensive moss and thatch control is a high impact treatment for when you’re dealing with a build up of harmful organic matter on your lawn. It should be done annually, or as required, to give your lawn the foundations to flourish year-round.

It’s also important to keep on top of moss and thatch control with regular maintenance, which you can get with our convenient ongoing lawn care packages.

Yes! Our treatments are all perfectly safe for children and pets long-term, and they can go back to enjoying your lawn within an hour of us finishing. For grazing animals we may recommend a short period of time before they can go back on your lawn, and our experts will advise you on everything you need to know.

Removing moss and thatch from lawns has many benefits. It helps your grass flourish by letting more sunlight and nutrients reach the soil. It also clears more space for grass to grow, improves air circulation, and prevents diseases. Plus, it makes the lawn look healthier and more resilient to drought and pests.

Intensive moss and thatch removal, along with continued maintenance, is an essential step to getting a lush, green lawn.
