Go ahead and search ‘Lawn Mowing’ and you’ll see there are numerous companies which will come and, for a fee, cover your lawn in various chemicals. And of course there are the ‘Mow ‘n’ Go’ people who can come and cut it for you now and again. A large part of many peoples gardens is their lawn. Not just a well maintained area of green which is good to look at, but also a place to relax and socialise with friends and family.
I work with lawns differently though. I find that most lawns, react well to good old fashioned organic lawn care techniques.
Mowing regularly, scarifying, reseeding and feeding with an organic feed when needed are ways in which I manage my clients lawns to a high standard.
Each visit starts with a walk over where I see if there are any weeds which need dealing with. After these are removed, the next step is to tidy the edges by walls and fences. Then I use my Hayter Pro mower to create a beautiful cut, before going around and tidying up the edges of borders.
When it comes to the right time of year, I also carry a scarifier with me to remove any thatch in the lawn and also seed to reseed any areas which need it.
Dependant on need I can also feed the lawn with an organic feed once or twice per year.

Apart from lawns I am also a general gardener who works organically who can help you in many ways in your garden. From hedge cutting, weeding and general garden maintenance to hedgelaying and creating fedges – living woven willow fences which come to life in the spring and summer.
