Having joined the business in 2011, I have always had a keen interest in what it takes to maintain a beautiful green lawn. My career before this time was in retail and I have used this experience to look at everything we do through the eyes of our customers. My interest in quality lawns and my experience in retail seemed the perfect combination to make a business in this industry work.
My dad purchased TruGreen South Bedfordshire in 2010 at the height of the global recession.
When I joined the business in 2011 my first objective was to drive up our customer base. Starting in tough times has made us a truly customer focused company, which is now a successful small business with myself as the Owner Operator employing an apprentice.
This focus on our customers means we can deliver a personal service. We take the time to discuss our lawn care, offering advice and adjusting our program based on their needs. Some people, for example, want a lawn approaching the standard of a bowling green, others want a green expanse free of moss and weeds.
We are a lawn treatment service with a difference, we work with our customers to achieve their lawn ambitions because we recognise it isn’t just about applying treatments, it is about engaging with people.
If our customers aren’t home when we treat their lawns, we leave hand written lawn maintenance advice, often specific to their lawn. In addition to this we have social media pages that enable our customers to talk to us at a time convenient to them, often with a response in minutes and of course I am always at the end of a phone line.
So contact us today so that we can arrange a date for your FREE 14 Point Analysis.

You too can have a perfect lawn with these tips from the TruGreen experts. Here’s what you need to do to your lawn and when in each season.
Spring lawn alert
Moss is something that every lawn will have to deal with at some point. Moss will manifest itself and choke out healthy grasses, as well as starving the grass plant of the all-important nutrients applied through fertiliser. There are various reasons for the build-up of moss in a lawn, but very damp and shaded areas are at most risk and combined with limited hours of daylight and increased rainfall during the winter months, the ideal conditions are produced for moss to develop and take over the lawn.
The application of a quality commercial product, based on sulphate of iron, followed by a programme of scarification will keep the moss at bay and allow for the grasses to grow and thicken. Scarification will also reduce the thatch layer which if left to build-up will become an ideal growing medium for mosses, and it is additionally important to introduce aeration in improving drainage, along with the application of a balanced fertiliser in achieving a strong and healthy lawn.
TruGreen tips to achieving a great lawn!
Moss treatment using Ferrous Sulphate
Scarification to remove mosses and thatch
Aeration to improve drainage and fertiliser efficiency
Balanced of fertiliser to allow for healthy grass growth
Don’t allow Red Thread to ruin your lawn
Red Thread is one of the most common turf diseases found in the UK, resulting in irregular red patches on the lawn. It can occur at any time of year, but more commonly during the summer months and will favour damp, shady, poorly aerated and compacted soils that are lacking in nitrogen. Red Thread will not generally kill the grass plant, but does give an unsightly appearance to the leaf, spoiling the appearance of the lawn.
Dependent upon the severity of the red thread the damage can be treated by applying a high nitrogen fertiliser or more commonly by the use of a contact fungicide.
TruGreen tips to achieving a great lawn this summer!
Apply the correct fertiliser in managing warm weather conditions
Maintain the grass height between 25-30mm
Apply a fungicide at the first signs of disease
Apply irrigation when necessary during the cooler part of the day to prevent evaporation.
Good lawn care in Autumn will leave your lawn better prepared for the Winter.
When maintaining lawn quality and health, it is crucial to apply the correct autumn fertiliser. Controlling the level of potassium will raise the turf’s tolerance to disease, wear and soft growth as well as helping it to withstand low temperature during the winter months.
Additional benefits of our controlled release autumn fertilisers include the retention of colour and a healthy root structure, important factors if the lawn is to survive possible frost and snow.
Prepare your lawn for winter
All lawns benefit from having any remaining thatch that has accumulated over the summer months removed before the onset of winter, and it is equally important to maintain drainage if moss is to be controlled.
Maximise your lawn’s ability to overcome the winter by speaking with your local TruGreen operator about the level of scarification and aeration that may be required. Combining these mechanical services with an autumn fertiliser will allow for a more healthy lawn come the end of the winter.
As snow mould occurs under a blanket of snow it is often not until the snow has melted and winter is over that you may know if you have been affected or not. The disease manifests itself as a white or pink patch where the lawn has literally gone mouldy. Prevention is key with this particular lawn disease and there are several factors to take into consideration which may affect its likelihood:
Shade and high moisture, accompanied by cool temperatures.
Inadequate circulation of air above the lawn.
Rapid, forced and weak growth of grass in autumn.
Alkaline soil pH, between 7 and 14.
Weak turf, perhaps due to wear or irregular mowing.
Blunt mower blades causing a poor cut.
Compacted soil and poor drainage.
If you feel your lawn may be susceptible to any of these conditions, then an outbreak can be reduced by a number of means, including the following:
Regular aeration and scarification.
Alternating the direction of the cut helps the grass to stand upright and will help air move between the plants.
Lowering nitrogen applications at the end of the summer / early autumn period.
The most enthusiastic gardeners can play a role by removing dew with a rake in the mornings.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here at TruGreen South Bedfordshire, we aim to answer as many of your questions from the condition of your lawn, to simple advice regarding caring for your lawn. We feel that it is important that we share with our clients the frequently asked questions that we handle on a regular basis.
Are your lawn care treatments harmful to children and pets?
A. Our lawn care treatments are not harmful and perfectly safe for children and pets. However, we do recommend for both children and pets to stay off the lawn for a couple of hours after the treatment has been applied to allow it to dry.
I don’t have moss in my lawn, do I need to scarify it?
A. Quite possibly yes. Scarification isn’t only for removing moss. Like any other plants, the older they get the more stems they get. As the grass plant gets older these stems begin to form a thick thatch on the surface of the soil. This prevents moisture and nutrients getting through to the grass roots. This is where scarification is of benefit, clearing out the thatch and opening up the channels again.
Do I need to water my lawn?
A. Yes, you will need to water your lawn as your lawn is a plant, and requires feeding. You should give your lawn around 3-4 cm of water per week.
Can I walk on my lawn after it has been treated?
A. Yes, unless it has had a specialist treatment. I will be sure to let you know if this is the case and how long you should stay off the lawn for.
Do I need to be in when you come?
A. No, I will always give you prior notice of when I shall be coming to treat your lawn so you are aware of when I will be visiting. If you want to be in when I attend and the proposed date is not convenient I will happily change the appointment to a more suitable date.
Do I need to sign up to an annual treatment plan?
A. No, I am happy to complete a one of treatment where required however I do recommend putting a treatment plan in place to ensure your lawn is kept in the best possible condition and health.
