Moss Control

Got a problem with Moss in your lawn? Lawnscience will take care of your lawn’s Moss issue and turn your lawn into a great looking lawn that you will be proud of… at a price you can afford.

Moss is an opportunist plant that thrives in wet or damp conditions. These conditions enable it to reproduce and when there is space available on the lawn for it to establish. Once established within a lawn, it can spread quickly by the distribution of millions of microscopic spores making Lawn Moss Control harder.

Aeration

Problems with soil compaction in your lawn? Lawn Aeration is the perfect solution.

We will understand your lawn’s condition so we can turn it into a healthy, great looking lawn.

Scarification

Thatch spoiling the look of your lawn?  If so, Lawn Scarification is the best solution. 

Lawns that are not scarified on a regular basis can develop excessive thatch, which is a layer of dead and decaying organic matter lying on top of the root zone. A moderate level of thatch can be beneficial but too much thatch will have a detrimental effect on the grass plant by reducing the availability of moisture and nutrients to the root zone.

Over Seeding

Lawn looking thin and patchy? An application of quality lawn seed will improve the way your lawn looks.

Call your local Lawnscience professional to find out how Lawn Seeding can greatly improve your lawn so you can enjoy it. Over time lawns can become thin and patchy, it may be due to excessive wear or as a result of insect or fungal attack, or there is the time when the lawn just might need thickening to improve its appearance with lawn seeding.

We will inspect your lawn’s condition and can apply a quality lawn Top Dressing to improve the overall quality of your lawn. A great way to improve the condition of your lawn is to regularly apply Lawn Top Dressing.

Disease Management

Disease infections are becoming more common in UK lawns as our weather patterns are forever changing.

The heavy, short bursts of rain during periods of warm weather create the ideal conditions for fungal pathogens that live within the soil and attack the grass plant. These infections can be aesthetic only, as in the case of Red Thread, and Rust. However, they  can be fatal as with Fusarium and Anthracnose.

Pest Control

Don’t let lawn pests destroy the look of your lawn.  Lawnscience will provide you with Lawn Pest Management service to make sure your lawn doesn’t look like this…

The Leatherjacket and Chafer Grub are two insects that can live in the soil beneath lawns. They both cause extensive damage by eating the root system of the infected lawn, killing the grass completely. Lawn Pest Management is essential to keep your lawn healthy and beautiful.

Soil Conditioner

If you want to help your lawn look its best, then you need to look after the grass root zone.

The condition and efficiency of your lawn’s roots play a major role in the health and appearance of your lawn. Remember it is your lawn’s root system that is responsible for extracting from the soil all the nutrients that the plant needs to survive and thrive.

Wasps in Lawns

Wasps nesting in gardens can be very dangerous especially when there are children playing nearby.

They can also cause problems if you like to eat outdoors. Adult wasps eat a sweet substance produced by younger wasps, as these wasps mature the supply of the sweet substance reduces and the adult wasps have to go in search of other sweet things to satisfy their craving.

Moles

Are you and your family looking forward to spending time outdoors in your garden this Summer?

If you are like many lawn owners, you may have some things that are spoiling your lawn, such as Moles. We see a lot of Mole damage in lawns and other turfed areas and they are of course a Greenkeepers nemesis. Moles are solitary creatures that live in a system of tunnels, feeding on insects and earthworms that fall into their tunnels. To the majority of gardeners, they are a real pest, especially in lawns! They can quickly establish themselves in a location due to their ability to burrow up to 4 metres an hour, creating complex tunnel systems. Imagine the damage that would be caused to your lawn.
