THE PROGRAMME 

Typically during a visit and evaluation Midlands Lawn Care will propose a programme of treatments to treat and improve your lawn. This will be discussed with you and documented in writing within a day or so. The programme may consist of ‘routine’ treatments such as feeding and weed/moss/pest and disease control and ‘cultural and mechanical’ treatments such as aeration, scarification and top dressing which may be carried out annually or every few years.  Work such as turfing would generally be carried out as a specific project and be outside the programme. There is no contract to sign and the programme can be stopped at any time of your choosing.

Seeding/Turfing
Seeding and turfing may be used either for laying a new lawn from scratch or for renovating an existing lawn. The latter may be due to localised damage, extending a lawned area, strengthening following scarification or disease and so on....more detail

Top Dressing
Top dressing is the application of bulky material to the surface of the turf. This is a key part of a professional groundsmans annual activity but rarely applied regularly to domestic lawns. The top dressing will consist of....more detail
