Lawn Thickener

A shortcut to a thick, lush healthy lawn.

As the years pass and lawns age they can become much thinner, exposing patches of soil. This can really affect the appearance of you lawn and create space for weed seeds to germinate and for moss to gain an unwelcome foothold.

The Lawnscience lawn thickener treatment re-directs the growth energy of the grass plant, inhibiting vertical growth and encouraging sideways spreading and downwards growth to thicken the roots. Food reserves in the grass plant are also increased, which all contribute to producing a much thicker, healthier lawn.

An additional benefit to the lawn thickener treatment is a short term reduction in the need to mow.
