Why do I need my lawn treating?

We take the stress out of caring for your lawn so that you can spend more time enjoying it

A thick, weed-free lawn is the crowning glory for any garden, but lawn maintenance can be time-consuming and tedious. Using GreenThumb's lawn care experts means you can expect great results without the hassle. If you have ever tried to treat your own lawn, you may have asked the following questions:

  • What kind of lawn fertiliser should I use?
  • When and how should I apply the fertiliser?
  • Can I do this by hand or should I buy a spreader?
  • How much fertiliser should I use?
  • What happens if it rains when I’m treating the lawn?
  • What happens if it doesn’t rain?
  • What about the weeds?
  • Why do some weeds die and others don’t?
  • Why is there moss on the lawn?
  • Why has nothing happened at all?

All these concerns and questions can race through your mind as you stand in front of the multitudes of lawn care products at the garden centre or DIY store. The main advantage of having GreenThumb care for your lawn is that we deal with all of these concerns for you, so you have more time to do what matters and enjoy your garden.
