Greensleeves East Lancashire

Thank you for visiting our website. Greensleeves is one of the UK’s leading providers of lawn care services, enabling thousands of customers to enjoy lush, green and beautiful lawns.

There is a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment to be had from looking out onto a well-kept lawn, free from weeds and moss. However, achieving the dream can often be tricky and time-consuming. As a result, thousands of customers turn to Greensleeves to help provide the perfect lawn.

Throughout our network of franchises around the United Kingdom, Greensleeves offers a reasonably priced, specialist lawn care service. We treat our customers’ lawns with a bespoke feed and weed compound. To achieve a deep green, weed-free lawn, most lawns should be fed four times a year using a quality fertiliser product and weed or moss control.

Greensleeves use top-quality products with ‘no scorch’ technology, combined with time-release granules that give a steady supply of nitrogen so as not to produce surge growth, giving a long-lasting greening to your lawn. Our treatments are safe to children, pets & plants and our service often works out cheaper than doing it yourself!

We also provide specialist scarification and aeration services, to ensure your lawn remains strong and healthy all year round.

Q&A with Colin Hadfield from Greensleeves East Lancashire

 

How long have you been with Greensleeves?

Coming up to seven years now.

Tell us a little bit about what you do…

I do everything that a small-business owner would be expected to do… from the accounts, admin, marketing and quoting for new business to all the other day-to-day activities that a business requires. However, the main activity is obviously the lawn care itself!

Who else is on your team?

Just me.

Do you offer any additional services?

No… it’s all about the grass for me!

What’s the most unusual obstacle you’ve had to overcome, i.e. steepest/biggest/roughest lawn?

In the early days I had a customer with a very unusual house. The garden had to be reached by going up a flight of steps on the outside of the house. He was booked in for an aeration, which he said had been done before. So being new on the job and not wanting to upset the customer, myself and a nephew managed to carry the machine up at least 20 steps, then did the job before struggling to get back down all the steps. Once the pair of us had calmed down and stopped sweating, I said never again would I attempt something like that!

Are you a dog or a cat person? (Or anything else!)

Both.

What’s the best thing about your job?

Meeting people and working outdoors, even in all the unpredictable weather!

Why did you choose to specialise in lawns?

I’d always wanted to run my own business and having used lawn care companies in the past, I decided it sounded good to be able to transform other people’s lawns.

Which is your favourite season to work in?

Autumn.

What do you like to listen to in your van?

Radio 2 and Talksport.

Are you a tea or coffee person? Or something else entirely?

Green tea.

If people would like to speak to you, what are the best ways to get in touch?

Telephone, email, or contact me through the website.
