Late Summer Treatment

During the summer your lawn uses its energy to grow rapidly and to fight against the stresses of possible drought and disease, and so essential nutrients will have been depleted, which is why it is important to apply a second Late Summer Treatment to nourish, restore, and strengthen the grass.

Although drought can be a problem for lawns, as part of the Late Summer Treatment we use our specially formulated fertiliser, which does not need to be watered in and can be applied during dry periods to maintain a green lawn for as long as possible during these conditions. If your lawn is prone to drought we recommend our specialised Drought Management Treatment which will help your lawn store water for longer.

Humidity during the summer months can provide ideal conditions for the development and spread of disease so it is important for us to spot problem areas and treat them as quickly as possible. During this time too, the arrival of pests and insects to your garden may cause damage to your lawn, so our lawn managers are always on the lookout for signs of unwanted visitors and they will recommend the best way to deal with them.

How it works

Fertiliser – The fertiliser we use for the Late Summer Treatment contains 100% slow and steady release nutrients so the plant has plenty of food for the coming weeks. It may also be a good time to boost the lawn with essential amino acids and sugars to promote good soil biology and aid overall lawn health. Find out more about our summer fertiliser.

Weed Control Spray – Our City & Guilds professional qualification means we have been certified and approved to use a specific herbicide safely to target only weeds during treatment.

What to expect

After the Late Summer Treatment your lawn should continue to prosper in a weed and moss free environment. The grass roots should be deep and strong which will help with stress like drought and disease.

How to prepare

For best results please mow and clear your lawn of debris.

There are no definite rules on watering your lawn as there are many different factors that affect the hydration of your lawn including weather conditions, soil type and overall health of your lawn.

A basic and quick way to test the moisture in your soil is to push a screwdriver into the soil; if it comes out completely dirt free and dry then you need to water. Find out how to keep your lawn hydrated.

Bird activity is normal for a healthy garden, but if you notice more than usual activity and disruption to your lawn this could be a sign of pests like Chafer Grubs or Leatherjackets. These are common grubs found in British lawns so a few won’t cause any problems. But when there is an infestation they can lead to damage, especially when birds and animals choose to feed on them. Find out how best to prevent pests and how to spot them on our Pest Control treatment page.

Seasonal Treatments


Spring is the season of growth, so it's time to prepare for the year ahead, providing your lawn with essential nutrients for optimum strength.

Early Summer

Summer is the time that you want to be outside making the most of your garden, so a healthy, stronger and greener lawn is always our mission.


Autumn is the time to prepare your lawn for the cold months ahead when grass growth slows but weeds and disease may prevail.


Winter is the time to protect and strengthen your lawn against the stresses of extreme temperatures and unpredictable weather conditions.

Annual Treatments


This is a vital ‘spring clean’ for the lawn and an essential annual treatment to remove unwanted organic matter such as dead grass, moss and weeds, to revive the shoots and thicken up the grass.


An essential Annual Treatment we recommend is the Hollow Tine Aeration; a process which relieves compaction, allows essential air exchange and improves soil hydration.


Grass, just like all plants, has a natural life cycle and will in time die off. Mowing the lawn prevents the grass from going to seed and so this is where overseeding is important.
