At Greensleeves we are your local lawn care experts, devoted to keeping lawns everywhere beautiful and healthy.

This is why we’ve built this FAQ’s page, to answer the questions that we often get asked and give you some useful bits of advice. Lawn care can be complicated, but we are here to help you on your journey to achieving your perfect lawn.

If you don’t find the answer to your questions below, then please don’t hesitate to contact our friendly team – we will be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.

Once our treatment is completed it is entirely safe for children and pets to go on the lawn. However, we do recommend staying off the lawn for one hour after application, and we may recommend that grazing animals be kept off the grass for a short period of time – our experts will be able to advise you on any safety measures during their visit.

The growth of your lawn will slow as autumn arrives, but regular mowing is still needed to ensure your lawn stays healthy in between treatments. Keeping on top of mowing, raking leaves, and watering will help to keep your lawn looking its best.

We recommend that all lawns have the autumn lawn treatment performed once a year. While things slow down in the autumn, maintaining your lawn during this time is critical since it will ensure that your lawn looks better than ever when the warm weather arrives again next year.

Our recommended autumn lawn treatment involves moss control, and using our seasonal fertiliser to help repair any summer damage to your lawn. Our low-nitrogen treatment will precondition your lawn ready for winter, slowing growth whilst providing it with the nutrients it needs to strengthen roots and remain hardy to the elements.
