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.

Weeds can very quickly overrun your lawn, so the main sign is visibility of weeds. If you start to see weeds progressively growing, then it might be time to contact an expert. Weeds also take nutrients, oxygen and water away from the grass, so the other sign that it’s time for a weed response treatment is when your grass itself starts looking worse for wear.

With ongoing lawn maintenance, our experts can help assess and prevent weed growth so you can rest assured that your lawn is never compromising.

The herbicides we use have been specially designed to be safe around adults, children and pets. Typically you should wait 1 hour after treatment before using your lawn again and you should keep grazing animals such as rabbits away from the grass for up to 10 days.

Your local expert will be able to provide you with all of the information you need about how best to use your lawn after a weed response treatment.

Unfortunately it’s almost impossible to keep weeds away forever, due their fast growth and seed distribution. However, with a professional treatment and ongoing lawn care, you stand the best possible chance of keeping them away for longer. With an effective weed response treatment, you will also limit the damage weeds can do to your lawn if left unchecked.

While our team will do the heavy lifting, in order to maintain your lawn to its highest standard you should mow your lawn on a regular basis and continue to water it, especially during drier months, to ensure it is getting as much oxygen and water as it can. As part of your ongoing lawn care, our experts will give you all the guidance and advice you need.
