Your local team
My name is Oliver Green and I am the TruGreen LawnCare Franchise holder in this area. I have been with TruGreen since 2005, so am one of the more experienced operators in the Company. Every year since joining the Company I have been on courses to improve my understanding of grass growth, grass diseases and general lawn care.
I have been very lucky to have an excellent Support team during my time with TruGreen, headed by my manager Rob. He has been with me for 7 seasons now and has been through a course at local College Merrist Wood, as well as our own in-house courses. David joined the team last year and is also qualified through Merrist Wood College.
We have great experience in treating the lawns of this area and are always happy to discuss any individual problems that you might have when we visit. We readily recognise that each lawn is different and that customisation of the treatments through the year is very important.
We can always be contacted on the Freephone number 0800 389 3310
Services We Offer
Scarification is a mechanical operation which helps to remove all unwanted organic matter from around the base of the grass plant (thatch) and tidy up any straggly lateral growth from your lawn. The process will also remove moss that will otherwise choke the grass plant and restrict growth.
Aeration involves piercing the lawn to allow water, oxygen, fertilisers and other nutrients to penetrate the soil more effectively and reach the grass roots. There are two main types of aeration that are a benefit to the lawn. Solid tine aeration, which aids the development of the grass plant, and hollow core aeration which facilitates the application of a top dressing and improves drainage.
TruGreen have specialised equipment which plants the seed at the correct depth, enabling the seed to germinate quicker and more successfully.
- Weed and Moss control
Moss is something that every lawn will have to deal with at one time or another. Moss will manifest itself as a non flowering plant and will choke the grass, as well as starving it of the required nutrients. There are various reasons for the build up of moss in a lawn, but very damp and shaded areas are at most risk.
- Pest control
There are a number of grass pests that are common in the UK. A grass pest is a creature that lives within the grass and feeds on the grass plant. Many grass pests feed on the root of the plant which causes a rapid deterioration in the condition of your lawn, causing large areas of discoloured grass and potentially a dead lawn.
- Disease control
The development of most diseases are usually dependent upon weather conditions, so recent weather conditions are to be considered during any diagnosis. Most diseases will have certain characteristics such as discolouration of the grasses, brown, dry patches or signs of fungi (mushroom type growth).
- Growth regulating
As well as residential customers we also offer our services to commercial clients including property management companies, Garden Centres, landscapers, architects, property developer, gardeners and bowling greens.
We recommend a programme of 4 Weed and Feed visits per annum + an annual Aeration to our customers. We do carry out any small amounts of lawn repair that is needed on our visits. Scarification, Fungicide, Insecticide and Topsoil Dressing treatments are treated as extras. When we Scarify we do remove detritus (we are licensed for this) and we over-seed where necessary. There is an element of anti-moss in both our first and last treatments.
We operate from 2 vehicles with a third in action during the busier seasons, either myself or Rob will be at every visit to answer any questions or queries – I try to get to every property twice a year, and am always at the end of the Freephone number 0800 389 3310 or on my mobile 07748 013178.
Season 2017 in Hampshire and Surrey
The Winter of 2016/17 has been a difficult one for grass growth. The first part of the Winter in this region was wet and warm, ideal conditions for moss growth. Because of this warmth but also the overcast nature of those weeks we did encounter a fair amount of Fusarium on some lawns – brown circular patches. Latterly temperatures have dropped and the ground has been frozen for long periods of time.
An early Aeration in the Season would be essential to the recovery of the lawn and vigour of the growth as we go into the new lawn season, it is vital to get air, water and nutrient down to the root growth zone.
Scarification will be important where lawns have suffered with all the moss growth that has been going on.
