Residential lawn care treatment
A beautiful home garden is nothing without a beautiful lawn that is cared for all year round. The attention that Moorlands Lawn Care provides will result in more time for you to enjoy your garden, instead of doing all the work yourself.
All year-round lawn care treatment
Our treatments change as the year progresses from a focus of over autumn/winter of moss control and micro nutrients to maintain a healthy lawn over the colder, wetter times of the year, to focus on herbicides and fertilisers over the warmer months to promote healthy growth and help keep weeds at bay.
Compacted ground can have profound consequences for your lawn, but this problem can be easily solved by aerating the soil. Moorlands Lawn Care use professional grass aeration machines that move across the surface of the lawn and punch metal spikes (tines) 2-3 inches into the ground. This creates hundreds of tiny holes in the ground and loosens compacted soil. If necessary, hollow tines can be used to pull a soil core out of the ground – this helps to remove troublesome thatch as well as aerating the lawn. Lawns should be regularly aerated so grass roots can develop healthily. Here at Moorlands Lawn Care, we recommend spiking your lawn every 2-3 years and carrying out hollow tine grass aeration every 3-4 years.
A process where the grass is stripped back, aerated, and scarified to remove moss, it is then over seeded and top dressed with rootzone to help achieve a totally renovated, thick, deep green, weed and moss free lawn.
Tailored control for weed and moss problems
If you have moss or weed problems, or even both, in your lawn, we create tailored products that manages and removes moss and weeds.
Chafer grubs and Leatherjackets are the soil-dwelling larvae that cause lawn decay, seen as patches of yellowish-brown grasses which often dies. Additionally, damage by the animals that feed on them can create a lawn that looks like a ploughed field. Moorlands Lawn Care can bring these pests under control and relieve lawns of this problem.

Lawn scarification is the process of pulling dead moss and thatch out of your garden lawn. In the short term, scarifying your grass will make your lawn look worse, but once it recovers, it will be far healthier than before. Moorlands Lawn Care scarification schedule are ideal to ensure that it is followed by beneficial weather conditions that assist with the lawn’s recovery. Moss control should be carried out in advance, as lawn scarification could end up spreading moss spores across the lawn and making things worse than before.
