Lawn 3 specialises in the treatment and restoration of your lawn. We offer several types of lawn treatment which are detailed below.
Mar\Apr – We apply spring fertiliser and weed treatment to your lawn
May\Jun – We apply early summer fertiliser and weed treatment to your lawn
Jul\Aug – We apply late summer fertiliser and weed treatment to your lawn
Sept\Oct – We apply liquid iron treatment to your lawn to control moss and protect it over the winter
Nov – We apply crane fly (daddy long legs) treatment to your lawn to prevent infestation in the spring
These treatments can be included with your year-round treatment, or ordered independently.
Scarification – We remove moss and/or thatch from your lawn, which improves oxygen, water & nutrient levels in the soil
Aeration – This treatment improves drainage, provides space for root growth in your lawn, and allows nutrients and oxygen to the root zone
Miraclemoss – Our own organic moss control treatment, safe for pets, wildlife and your border plants
Pest Control – Chafer Grub treatments to rid your lawn of dead spots
Mowless – A treatment that reduces the speed of your lawn’s growth, reducing the need to mow and resulting in a much healthier lawn
Yes! Our fertilisers are slow-release and last for up to three months. This is twice as long as off-the-shelf products. We also apply the right products on your lawn at the right time of year, meaning zero waste. Not only does it cost less, but it requires far less effort than DIY.
Garden centre products are diluted so that no professional qualifications are required to buy or apply them. But this also means that they can be less effective when applied to your lawn. As well, many of these products are a mixture of lawn food, moss killer, greener and weed killer, which also compromises their effectiveness.
As well, garden centre products are designed to give a flush of growth so that you see visible results sooner. Unfortunately, much of the solution is too strong to be absorbed by your lawn and simply washes away. All of the operators at Lawn 3 are NPTC qualified, able to purchase and apply professional-strength fertilisers and weed killers to your lawn.
All of the products Lawn 3 applies are slow release, which allows a carefully regulated release of nutrients into the soil for a lawn that not only looks healthy on the surface, but really is healthy all the way from root to top.
No. Our programme is designed to run throughout the year—there is never a bad time to start improving your lawn.
Our programme is specifically designed to reduce the need for herbicides over a period of time. We aim to use products that are organic and safe for the environment.
Our treatments are safe for both children and pets. Only animals that graze on the grass need to be kept off of your lawn for 2 weeks after treatment, and this is only so that your grass can be allowed to grow and become stronger.
Most customers start to see results within 7 to 10 days of the application.
Once applied, herbicides need time to work through from the leaf to the root. Your weeds should begin to wither within 3 weeks following treatment. However, because of the time it takes for the herbicide to work through, we advise you not to mow your lawn for 3 days before and 3 days after a treatment.
Weather conditions like unusual dryness, mowing too soon or heavy rain immediately of treatment can also have an impact on its effectiveness. If none of these conditions are present and the treatment doesn’t appear to be working, we encourage you to contact us.
Yes. Everyone who will be treating your lawn is a qualified Lawn 3 Green Keeper. Our training programmes are recognised as the most comprehensive in the lawn maintenance industry. We don’t employ temporary or unqualified staff to treat your lawn. You can ensure that all treatments will be carried out correctly at the appropriate time of year.
All our operators hold full PA1 & PA6 NPTC qualifications which certify them to purchase, prepare and calibrate professional herbicides and sprayers and to operate them to ensure correct application rates without risk to themselves, other people or the environment.
Our charges are based on the size of your lawn. Treatments start from just £17 per visit for lawns up to 100 square metres in size. Our core programme involves five visits, which would be a total cost of £85 per year.
No. We simply invoice you each time we visit. You can cancel service at any time; just inform us prior to the next scheduled visit. Some of our customers prefer to pay by monthly Standing Order, but this is optional.
