- Listen and agree realistic expectations for a healthy lawn and help our customers with easy to understand information;

A healthy lawn
There are many benefits to a healthy lawn, beyond being a source of pride and enjoyment for your family. A healthy lawn cools the environment, converts carbon dioxide into oxygen, improves our air quality, and stabilizes the ground beneath our feet.
Did you know?
- 60m2 of lawn provides enough oxygen for one person for an entire day
- A healthy lawn prevents run-off, absorbing rainfall six times more effectively than a wheat field and four times better than a hay field
- One single grass plant can have 387 miles of roots
- Up to 90 percent of the weight of a grass plant is in its roots.
- Healthy grass producing more biomass has a higher sequestration of carbon
Below are just a few of our many practices to ensure both a beautiful lawn and a healthy environment.
Our lawn care programs are designed to provide your lawn with a safe and balanced nutrition to keep it thick, healthy, green and weed free whilst reducing the impact to the air and soil.
We recommend lawn beneficial (cultural) and natural soil enrichment treatments as part of the programme to improve your lawn, soil conditions and soil health, all these have a beneficial environmental impact.
We do use control products, Greener Gardens evaluate each product used and offer natural products where available. If no natural product is available we only apply the necessary amounts of the latest products available to manage weeds.
All of our operatives are trained in the correct handling, use and application of products, we only use products that have been approved by government authorities and apply them using the modern accurate equipment.
We are voluntary members of BASIS lawn Assured and UK Lawncare Association, a network of Independent lawn care operators. Our membership demonstrates our commitment to quality and environment responsibility.
