Autumn lawn care - the secret to your future garden
Things begin to slow down in autumn as the nights draw in and the temperature starts to drop. However, autumn is a really important time for lawn care, and a diligent approach will be rewarded come spring. By giving your lawn the TLC it needs with a seasonal autumn treatment, you can give it the best chance of staying healthy through winter, ready for the next year.
Why choose our seasonal autumn lawn treatment?
Fight moss and thatch to save your lawn
Moss and excess thatch can be a huge problem in autumn, threatening to ruin all of your lawn’s summer gains in a short period of time. Not only will these unwelcome additions deprive your grass of light and nutrients, but they also provide a breeding ground for various diseases and pests.
Revitalise your lawn
Our autumn seasonal treatment uses a fertiliser solution that is specifically formulated to reinvigorate your lawn after the harsh summer months, whilst also helping grass stay thick and healthy throughout the cooler part of the year.
Keep your autumn garden green
Factors such as soil compaction, less sunlight and increased moisture can cause your lawn to lose its ‘green-ness’ over autumn and winter. Using low-nitrogen fertiliser and moss control, our autumn treatment will help keep your lawn greener for longer.
Prevent harm from autumn diseases
Autumn brings with it a variety of diseases that can cause serious harm to your lawn. For this we recommend one of our disease control treatments, a nutrient-rich fertiliser and moss control to help prevent fungal diseases by drying them out and preventing them from spreading further.

Frequently Asked Questions
Once our treatment is completed it is entirely safe for children and pets to go on the lawn. However, we do recommend staying off the lawn for one hour after application, and we may recommend that grazing animals be kept off the grass for a short period of time – our experts will be able to advise you on any safety measures during their visit.
Our recommended autumn lawn treatment involves moss control, and using our seasonal fertiliser to help repair any summer damage to your lawn. Our low-nitrogen treatment will precondition your lawn ready for winter, slowing growth whilst providing it with the nutrients it needs to strengthen roots and remain hardy to the elements.
We recommend that all lawns have the autumn lawn treatment performed once a year. While things slow down in the autumn, maintaining your lawn during this time is critical since it will ensure that your lawn looks better than ever when the warm weather arrives again next year.
The growth of your lawn will slow as autumn arrives, but regular mowing is still needed to ensure your lawn stays healthy in between treatments. Keeping on top of mowing, raking leaves, and watering will help to keep your lawn looking its best.

I would highly recommend Greensleeves
I would highly recommend Greensleeves who restored our baron-looking lawn which had been eaten away by chauffer grubs to a lush green fantastic lawn in a matter of months and we now have them every few months to keep our lawn looking lush and beautiful by treating it. Also lovely pleasant and helpful staff. Thank you Greensleeves.
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job…
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job on the lawn in our new house – turning it from a weed-infected patch of green to a true grass lawn. All in the space of a few months during initially very challenging weather conditions. Very happy with the progress that has been made – thank you.
Good service and good people!
I have been using Greensleeves for a few years now and I am pleased with both their products and service and they definitely know what they are talking about. They come on the day they say they will come, they execute their work quickly and efficiently and above all our lawn has really benefitted from their service.
We have only just started using Greensleeves but our impression of the company so far is very good. All contact with them has been dealt with promptly and professionally. The first lawn treatment was carried out as arranged today and my husband had a couple of queries regarding the lawn and these were answered in a friendly and informative manner.
This Company do a great job of keeping my lawn in tip-top condition. They are very knowledgeable and I feel very reasonable for a job that definitely requires a level of expertise. I initially tried treating my lawn myself but got nowhere near the results of Greensleeves. Would highly recommend.
