Weed Control


Along with moss, weeds are the greatest problem in lawns. We use professional products to control even the most stubborn weeds, with up to 3 applications per year. All our weedkillers are ‘non-residual’ meaning there is no toxin build up in the soil.

Moss Control


Moss thrives in shade, areas of poor nutrition, waterlogging, compaction and very close mowing. Effective control requires a combination of mechanical and chemical applications. Our very important winter treatment is aimed directly at moss control.

Fertiliser Treatments


To keep a lawn in good condition it is almost certain that a sensible application of well balanced fertiliser is required. At Grasshopper we use the most modern materials available to ensure effective and safe application at all times of year, without resorting to excessive use of nitrogen.

Cultural Treatments

Lawn Scarification

The removal of surface thatch with Lawn Scarification helps to improve access to vital nutrients and water, and can help to deter moss growth.

Cultural Treatments

Lawn Aeration

The use of Lawn Aeration to reduce soil compaction and sub surface thatch, increasing the amount of water and nutrients available to the lawn.
