Frequently asked questionsLooking after your lawn can sometimes be a difficult job to stay on top of, and that’s where Lawn Envy can help. We wanted to provide our customers with a little more information about our service and so, on this page, we have collected a series of lawn care tips that will tell you everything you need to know about Lawn Envy and what we do.
Below, you will find answers to some of our most frequently-asked questions. If you require any further advice, don’t hesitate to call Lawn Envy on 01985 221107 today.
When is the best time to start treating my lawn?There is never a wrong time to start a programme of lawn care. Since your Lawn Envy treatment programme will be tailored to the individual needs of your lawn, it will take the time of year fully into account.
What if I feel my lawn is beyond help?Rarely is a lawn beyond help and during the evaluation we will be able to advise whether lawn renovation is feasible or not. As well as routine lawn treatments we offer a comprehensive range of lawn renovation services.
How long will it take for my lawn to look healthy?This very much depends upon the time of year the programme commences but typically (during the growing season) you’ll see an improvement in 2-3 weeks. Where a significant amount of lawn renovation work is required, the recovery time will be longer.
Why can’t I apply the same products and get the same results?The products we use are only available to professionals; they are not available to the public, and achieve far better results than those you can buy in the garden centre.
I already have a gardener, will I still need them?Lawn Envy’s programme of feeding and weed control will enhance the work already undertaken by your gardener. We provide the perfect complement to any gardener’s services, and their ongoing efforts will be instrumental in looking after your lawn long-term.
Do I need to water my lawn after your visit?In most cases no, we will be able to adapt the product we use to suit the weather conditions. Granular fertilizers applied correctly will not scorch your lawn.
When will I see my weeds start to die?Following weed treatment by Lawn Envy you will start to see a change in about 7-10 days. Weed treatment is only applied when weeds are actively growing so typically between April and end-September.
Are you qualified to apply the products you use?Yes, the application of pesticides used by Lawn Envy requires training and certification to NPTC (formerly City & Guilds) standards which we hold.
Are pets and small children in danger from the treatments?The granular fertilizers that we apply are approved for use on domestic lawns and are not hazardous provided they are used in accordance with the labelled instructions. Once we have applied a liquid weed treatment you should keep children and pets off the lawn until it is dry. Lawns are usually dry in 20-30 minutes and then it’s perfectly safe to enjoy your lawn.
Is there a contract to sign?No. We do not ask you to sign a contract; instead, we offer a pay-as-you-go service. If at any time you’d like to stop then all we ask is that you inform us of your wishes in plenty of time.
How much will it cost me?As you might expect, our prices are based on the size of the lawns we care for. To get an accurate answer, we recommend that you contact us for a consultation. We will visit you at a time to suit you and give you a free lawn evaluation and quotation without any obligation. You've nothing to lose and a beautiful, healthy and weed-free lawn to gain.
