Greensleeves Tyne & Wear

Our Tyne and Wear franchise is owned and operated by experienced lawn care expert Keith Swainston and his wife Sam.

Prior to starting his Greensleeves Lawn Care franchise in July 2008, Keith worked for over 20 years in financial services. The experience he gained when dealing face to face with people on a daily basis, has placed him in good stead for coping with the varying requirements of his customers.

Now a well-established family business with well over 1100 satisfied customers, Keith and Sam offer a professional lawn care service designed to provide their customers with a beautifully consistent green, weed free lawn – the cornerstone of many gardens across Great Britain.

An approachable and friendly individual, Keith prides himself on his honest reliability and ‘can do’ attitude towards dealing with varying customer requirements, within the scope of the services that Greensleeves Lawn Care are able to provide. As such, he is always available to provide help and advice to customers on any aspect of their lawn.

Greensleeves have spent many years working with lawns and have developed their own range of branded fertilisers. These are tailored perfectly for the needs of your lawn, throughout the year. Alongside our fertiliser treatment, we will apply a weed treatment which will remove all those dandelions, daisies and buttercups – as well as the whole manner of other weeds which spoil that green uniformity.

Moss is also a problem that is experienced by many people – our Greensleeves Lawn Care programme is designed in order to reduce moss. Scarification and hollow tine aeration are two of the additional services Greensleeves are able to offer in the battle against moss. Both offer great benefits to the lawn in general and improve the overall growing conditions, health and appearance of the grass.
