I’ve created this site to give you as much information as I can about caring for your Lawn, from preparing and seeding a brand new garden to keeping an established pristine lawn just that – pristine.

Have a look at the headings below for a guide to what each section on the site covers and where you can best find what you’re looking for. Use the “Getting Started” menu on the right to access the areas I list below.

Get an Online Lawn Consultation

First off, I’d love to give you a personal lawn consultation to start your lawn care journey properly. Before you even have to lift a lawn mowing or seed planting finger yourself I can tell you where to start and what you need to do.

Send me a couple of pictures of your lawn and a quick rundown of the problems you’re experiencing. I’ll then reply with professional advice on steps to take to gain real improvements. The service runs for a full year so you’ll have me on hand for expert advice for the full season.
