Regardless of the type of lawn you have, it is important to ensure that maintenance occurs year round. What types of maintenance should be applied at which time of year?
Spring is usually the time that most homeowners begin their lawn maintenance. When you call Lawn3, a technician will visit your home and advise you on the best treatments for your lawn. These recommended treatments will be based on how your lawn fared over the winter.

Although fertilised in spring, your summer lawn will still require nutrients in the form of additional feed. Once applied, this feed will help your lawn to retain its colour and thickness all summer long.
It is true that most plants begin their dormant cycle in autumn. This does not mean that plants such as grass do not require maintenance. Quite the contrary, in fact. It is during autumn that grass roots need to be stronger than ever to withstand the coming winter.
Should you care for your lawn in winter, and is this even possible? The answer is yes to both questions, especially if your lawn is experiencing issues with moss growth. Treatments like root development fertiliser can benefit a lawn greatly during the winter.

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
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"
"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"
