Weed Control

Weeds are very easily dispersed, so are almost impossible to eradicate completely. A longer lawn, with a dense growth habit helps in outperforming weeds, while an aerated soil is a much better option than a compacted soil. In saying this, weeds can be transferred on shoes, in manure, with animals, or even the mower. Some can be removed by hand but often a weed spray is the preferred and better option. You need to check the suitability of the product you are using for the weed you are trying to remove. Some are not suitable for different varieties of lawn. If you are unsure CONTACT USWeed Spraying

Pest Control

Keep your eyes peeled at all times for pests attacking your lawn. Often damage is not always obvious initially and is only visible on closer inspection, so it’s wise to inspect your lawn regularly for any damage. In general terms if you keep your lawn fed well and healthy, pests will leave you alone, remember they mainly attack lawns that are weak or under stress.
What is attacking your lawn will depend on the control measure to use but we have a number of options that you can use against these nasties. If you are unsure CONTACT US

Fungus normally becomes active during times of high humidity, or after high rainfall followed by warm weather. To help prevent fungus from infecting your lawn, you should control the use of high base Nitrogen fertilisers and water in the morning rather than late afternoon. However if a fungus does take hold just Phone or CONTACT US  and we will help you out with one of the Fungicides to get your lawn healthy again.
