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.

Patchy areas of grass, stunted growth, and brown spots, rings or slimy patches are all signs of an infestation. If you suspect you might have a disease infesting your lawn, then give our experts a call and they will come to do a full inspection.

Disease control should be applied as soon as possible after the infection is spotted. Our treatment conveniently eliminates the disease and keeps it away all in one go, and with ongoing lawn care we can continue to prevent disease from coming back.

Some of the more common diseases are more prevalent in the damp months of autumn, so this is when you should keep an extra eye out for signs of infection.

As a general rule of thumb, lawn diseases tend to thrive on damp debris in shady areas, so one preventative measure that everyone can do is keep garden debris such as fallen leaves, grass clippings and windfall off your lawn as much as possible.

With a lawn care package, your expert will also be able to advise on any other ways you can help to prevent disease from infesting your lawn, alongside putting a preventative programme in place themselves.

It doesn’t take an expert to tell you that disease is something you don’t want infesting your lawn. By letting disease infect and spread, you could quickly end up with a lawn so damaged that it is beyond repair. By having a disease control treatment as soon as you notice an issue, you can rescue your lawn and save a lot of stress further down the line!

With ongoing lawn care, our experts will be able to identify any diseases quickly during their visits, and will efficiently diagnose, treat, and prevent the disease from returning.
