Greensleeves Harrogate District

Simon Barber took over the Harrogate District Greensleeves Franchise in 2010 and has subsequently grown the business into the leading lawn care service provider in the area. The franchise has prospered thanks to Simon’s consistent delivery of quality lawn care to his customers.

Our services offered include five seasonal treatments per year -encompassing fertiliser application, weed control and moss control, as well as the essential annual mechanical operations of scarification and hollow-tining.

Fertilisation

From spring through to autumn, we apply a no-scorch controlled release granular fertiliser. The consistency of the fertiliser varies according to the season.

Weed control

From spring through to autumn, we apply a selective weedkiller using knapsack sprayers.

Moss control

From autumn through to spring we apply a moss treatment using knapsack sprayers.

Scarification

This mechanical process to remove moss and built up thatch in the lawn is carried out in spring and autumn.

Hollow-tine aeration

This mechanical process involves the removal of cores from a lawn, which relieves compaction and creates a healthier soil eco-system.

Additional services

  • Spiking and hydration
  • Fungal disease treatment
  • Chafer and leatherjacket treatment
  • Hard surface weed control
