Hello, I am Mike, your local TruGreen LawnCare Expert for Newbury & Basingstoke.
My interest in lawns has been something I’ve had from a young age, living in London and wanting to see green! In all the houses I’ve lived in I have tried myself to have a green healthy lawn. Five years ago I started g a professional lawn care service and saw immediately the difference this made, real green grass that looked great! So when it came to looking for a business that I could invest and take pride from then lawn care was the obvious choice!
My earlier career has seen me working in IT travelling a lot selling specialist export software then into large corporate hardware sales and the fun of year 2000 compatibility. I retrained after the Dot Com bubble burst in the earlier ’00’s as a Mortgage Advisor and after cutting my teeth at the sharp end in estate agency, I went on to work for a couple of the UK’s largest best known retail banks. After 2009 I took a sideways step in to corporate employment benefits and group pensions.
I have dabbled a couple of times over the last 25 years and running my own business but found this difficult without the structure, experience and support. I have now found this with TruGreen and I’m very much looking forward to building a successful local business serving the Newbury, Basingstoke and the surrounding areas.

Are you wondering if you’re getting the best out of your lawn for this time of year? Below we’ll give you some handy seasonal hints!
When to Water the Lawn
While the temptation is to water the lawn at any time during the day, we need to consider the requirements of the plant. Watering in the morning (preferably before 10 a.m.) is the best time for the grass plant, allowing water to be absorbed through the roots before the temperatures rise to a level where the water applied will be lost to evaporation. Alternatively you can water in the early evening, ideally between 5 and 8pm, as with the longer daylight hours, this will allow for the grass leaf to dry before nightfall, significantly reducing the chances of disease. Never water an established lawn between the hours of 12noon and 3pm, as not only will evaporation become an issue, but there is the added potential for leaf scorch during extreme temperatures.
How Much Water to Use
When watering an established lawn, you need to water long enough to maintain moisture in the soil profile to a depth of approximately 150mm (6 inches). Be sure not to overwater the lawn, as excessive moisture in the upper surface will lead to shallow rooting, which in turn will give the perfect conditions for annual meadow grass to flourish. Watering every day is not necessary, with a lawn that is watered 3 times a week, for 20 minutes per day, allowing for a weekly application of 25mm (1 inch), being sufficient in allowing for the soil profile to maintain enough moisture in achieving strong growth and encouraging deep roots.
