Keep your lawn looking luscious right through the summer heat
Towards the end of the summer months, blazing sun on top of increased use can lead to lawns looking a little sorry for themselves if not properly cared for. At this time of the year, our service really focuses on giving your lawn everything it needs to stay looking its absolute best in the heat, so that you can really enjoy it right up until the end of the warm season.
Why choose our seasonal late summer lawn treatment?
Control weed invasions
Late summer is when your garden is most active, which sadly includes hard-to-control weeds. Our late summer treatment focuses on getting rid of weeds such as White Clover, Yarrow, Lesser Trefoil and Woodrush. We also offer weed control for your hard garden surfaces.
Keep it green
The combination of long hot days, dry spells, and rapid growth can begin to sap the colour from your lawn. Our seasonal treatment at this point enriches the soil with specially formulated slow-release fertiliser that will help the grass maintain that deep green we all want.
Prevent insect and disease damage
It’s not just weeds that can harm lawns at this time of year. A variety of grubs and larvae, such as chafer grubs, as well as diseases such as Red Thread, can infest your lawn and do massive damage. Alongside our seasonal treatment we can combat these threats with specialised products.
Protect your lawn and avoid scorching
The products we use in our late summer treatment are specially formulated to avoid scorching your lawn. Using these products as well as aeration, hydration, and other targeted techniques, our experts will keep your lawn protected from the impact of blazing sun all season.

Frequently Asked Questions
Our late summer treatment focuses on keeping your lawn green, avoiding scorching, and keeping your lawn healthy despite the summer heat. We achieve this by applying nitrogen-rich fertiliser which is packed with all the nutrients your lawn needs, alongside effective weed control.
We recommend that all lawns have a one-off late summer treatment, as it gives your lawn the boost it needs to keep it healthy for the rest of the season. However, in addition to our late summer treatment, we recommend regular lawn maintenance and watering to keep your lawn looking its best.
All of our treatments are completely safe for children and pets long-term – a lawn is meant to be enjoyed after all! We may recommend leaving a short period of time before allowing children, pets, or grazing animals back on the lawn, to allow products to absorb or dry. Our experts will advise you on everything you need to know in this regard when they carry out your treatment.
While our late summer treatment gives your lawn the nutrients and TLC it needs, it’s vital that you continue to regularly mow and water your lawn to keep it healthy in between our visits. This is especially important during the hot summer months when just a few days without water could leave your lawn looking worse for wear! We recommend watering your lawn heavily once or twice a week at this time of year, rather than little-and-often, and if you have any questions about caring for your lawn then our experts will happily give you all the advice you need.

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.
