Fertiliser Treatments

Regardless of the type of lawn you have or where that lawn is located on your property, regular fertilisation is necessary in order to keep it healthy.


Over the last couple of years, there has been a lot of science and technology put into lawn fertiliser treatments. The suppliers we deal with here at Lawn3 all employ the latest research and development so that we can offer the very best in fertiliser technology to our customers.


The fertilisers we use at Lawn3 are not available over the counter. Not only that, but they are applied to lawns at leading sporting venues across the country, including Wimbledon and Royal Ascot.


We use two types of fertilisers – coated granular and soluble products.


Polymer and Sulphur Coating


All of the fertilisers used at Lawn3 are polymer coated. This allows for the release of nutrients to be controlled. In addition to the polymer coating is a sulphur coating which prevents any nutrients in the fertiliser from being released before the soil contains sufficient moisture and is at the correct temperature for optimal absorption. These two coatings work together to ensure that your lawn does not receive nutrients until it can benefit fully from them.


Unlike domestic products, the fertilisers we use at Lawn3 won’t begin to release their nutrients once applied. Doing this into a dry lawn will only cause scorching to occur. Similarly, a lack of rain will not affect the fertiliser’s ability to supply nutrients to the soil, as it will remain dormant until optimal moisture level has been reached.


This type of fertiliser will not only ensure a consistent and well-balanced feed over the 2-3 month application period, but will also allow a non-surge growth pattern for your lawn.


Soluble Products


Our soluble fertilisers comprise coated micro-granules which are then suspended in water for spray application on lawns. These fertilisers offer both foliar and root nutrition. Foliar fertilisation is particularly beneficial when rainfall is intermittent.


How Often is a Lawn3 Fertiliser Application Done?


We apply fertiliser to your lawn three times per year in March/April, May/June and July/August to ensure that your lawn receives the nutrients it needs. Our team of trained professionals knows that every lawn is unique; therefore, they will adjust every fertiliser programme as needed to suit your lawn’s conditions and grass type.

Q)Will Lawn 3 Really Cost Me Less Than DIY, and Why?


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.

Q) What Does Lawn 3 Do?


Lawn 3 specialises in the treatment and restoration of your lawn. We offer several types of lawn treatment which are detailed below.

Year-Round Treatment

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

Supplementary Treatments

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


Q) What’s the Difference between Lawn 3 Products and Garden Centre Products?


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.

Our Happy Clients

"Stephen Monk Lawn 3 has been looking after our lawn for nearly three years , and we are very pleased with the personal service he provides and the results achieved to date. Previously over a period of some last seven years we had a similar service from two other lawn care providers. In each case we decided, after a reasonable period, that they were not providing the service we had expected. We found Lawn 3 by an internet search, and were impressed by the personal service referred to in the website testimonials Our lawn has suffered for many years with red thread. We are currently nearly free of this thanks to Stephen. He takes considerable pride in his work and makes you feel your lawn is important to him. He is extremely approachable whilst providing a professional caring service often giving simple self help tips to improve the lawn. Thanks Stephen"

Graham Motteram - Turnditch Derbyshire,

"Dear Steve, Lawn3 reseeded our lawn in the spring and we are very pleased with the result. Rather than a lawn filled with dandelions and Mind Your Own business we now have a beautiful thick green lawn - too nice to walk on! Steve is always helpful, keeps to his appointment times and has gone out of his way to give us extra advice. For anyone wondering whether to go for laying turf or seeding a lawn I would definitely recommend the latter. Our garden is shaded by a large tree so Steve has seeded with a shade tolerant grass seed - we are delighted. Thanks Steve"
