My core service involves a regular visit to your lawn, usually every two months, to apply the appropriate seasonal treatment and to provide professional feedback on any issues which may be relevant.

I also provide a variety of one-off services, such as aeration, scarification, pest control and a variety of additional lawn treatments to help get difficult lawns under control. I also provide a range of luxury lawn treatments for those extra-special lawns.

Main lawn care issues in Handforth

Handforth is a suburban area sandwiched between Cheadle and Wilmslow. It contains a real variety of small to medium sized homes and gardens and some much larger properties on the outskirts. Lawn care in the area is certainly needed and presents a variety of challenges.

The soil is generally okay, although there is a very apparent clay seam running through the area causing all sorts of drainiage problems. Many lawns in Handforth are waterlogged badly during the wetter months. Aerating and top dressing is beneficial in these situations.

Moss is ever present issue with the damp soil. The wet climate of Greater Manchester and a heavy cover of old trees providing shade causes more problems.

Red Thread and Fusarium are in the area, as well as an array of other soil-borne fungi. Handforth does not seem to suffer from pest problems too badly, although some grubs sometimes appear.

Lawns in Handforth can look fantastic. They just need regular treatments and a professional to spot problems before they spread. If you live in Handforth, get in touch with Lawnscience today.
