Greensleeves Eastbourne

Welcome to Greensleeves Lawn Care Eastbourne. My name is Richard, your local lawn treatment expert looking after lawns in Eastbourne, Uckfield and surrounding areas.

We are proud to offer our high-quality lawn treatment services to the lawns of Eastbourne. Greensleeves is one of the UK’s oldest established lawn treatment providers, treating British lawns since 1998. 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 deep green, weed-free lawns.

Here at Greensleeves, we believe there is a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment to be had from looking out onto a well-kept lawn free of weeds and moss. But achieving the dream can be tricky and time consuming. As a result, thousands of people turn to Greensleeves as their lawn care expert, to help create the perfect lawn.

Seasonal Lawn Care Treatments

We provide five regular visits throughout the year to keep your lawn in the best condition possible. These lawn maintenance visits consist of a detailed programme of treatments, designed to combat the most common lawn problems – such as moss and weeds. These are carried out in spring, early summer, late summer, autumn, and winter.

Greensleeves use top-quality products with ‘no scorch’ fertiliser technology, combined with time-release granules that give a steady supply of nitrogen so as not to produce surge growth. These methods provide a long-lasting greening to your lawn. Our lawn treatments are safe for children, pets and plants and our service often works out cheaper than doing it yourself. We also scarify and aerate your lawn annually, to ensure it is healthy all year round.

In addition, we can carry out the following specialist work:

  • Lawn renovation
  • Lawn pest control
  • Hydration
  • Fungicide
  • Overseeding

Don’t despair if you think your lawn is beyond repair; it probably isn’t! We specialise in lawn renovation where we double-scarify, aerate, re-seed and top dress – establishing a new lawn at a fraction of the price of re-turfing. We use the best grass seeds that the industry has to offer. All you need to do is add water.

Weed grasses

There are many different types of grass in the UK: the most common is poa annua. This grass flowers when the lawn is relatively short, therefore many people mistake it for a weed. It is, however, just grass. As mentioned above, we can offer the best grass seeds in the industry and would love the opportunity to talk to you about how we can manage your different grasses and introduce new, better, and stronger grass types into your lawn.

We may need to use our lawn aerator or scarifier first, to prepare the lawn for new grasses. However then, all we will ask you to do is water the seed.

Hard surface weed control

We can also provide weed control to your drive, pathways, and patio. Whatever the surface (gravel, stone, brick or tarmac) your hard surfaces can be as weed-free as your lawn. If you are struggling in the battle against weeds, just call us and we will be pleased to provide a free, no-obligation quotation.

If you’re considering using a lawn care service or are unhappy with your existing provider, give me a call on 01342 619470 for a no-obligation FREE quote.

Q&A with Richard Howell from Greensleeves Eastbourne

How long have you been with Greensleeves?

Since autumn 2020.

Who else is on your team?

We are a family business, with my wife Alexandra taking care of the office and me out on the lawns.

Which areas do you cover?

Eastbourne, Seaford, East Dean, Polegate, Willingdon, Battle, Bexhill, Hurstmonceux, Hailsham, Uckfield, Pevensey, Wannock, Maresfield, Nutley, Buxted, Heathfield, Burwash, Roberstbridge, Etchingam, Mayfield, Hadlow Down, Dallington and surrounding areas.

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

We have a number of customers with houses on the South Downs, which can present a difficult slope to deal with… but often a fantastic view to take in while working!

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

I love all animals! Although I do have a soft spot for one of my customer’s dogs, who always comes to greet me. It’s always a pleasure to meet many of our customers’ pets.

What’s the best thing about your job?

Working outdoors in beautiful gardens is always a pleasure! I also enjoy chatting with all our lovely customers.

Why did you choose to specialise in lawns?

In the UK we love our gardens, and the lawn is often the centrepiece. Whether it’s to relax in or host family or friends, it became even more apparent during those first lockdown months just how important our own green spaces are to us. My father is a loyal Greensleeves customer, and I could immediately see the difference in his lawn and what a great product we provide. I knew this was the path for me.

Which is your favourite season to work in?

Spring, although it’s very busy for us. But seeing nature come alive after a long winter is always great.

What do you like to listen to in your van?

Mainly football podcasts. Or if I fancy some music, it would probably be Absolute Radio.

Which is your favourite service station?

Pevensey Services! Not only well located but it also has a Starbucks and M&S food for a snack or drink.

What’s your favourite post-work snack or lunch item?

Americano and a Snickers is a great pick-me-up after a day’s work.

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

Coffee or just a large bottle of squash I keep in the van.

What are your social media channels?

Find us on Facebook.

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

Either give us a call or send an email and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
