Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer you are looking for, please contact us and we will be pleased to advise.

When will I notice the difference following lawn care treatment?
You will start to notice a considerable difference to the condition of the lawn within a couple of weeks. The weeds will start to curl up and the lawn will start to look greener.
Do I have to water the lawn after treatment?
Not generally no. However, if there is no rain for about 3 days after treatment it would aid the treatment if you did give the lawn a watering. The best time to water the lawn on hot days is early morning when it is cooler. This allows the water to soak in rather than burn off through the heat of the sun.
Do I have to sign a contract to use your lawn care services?
No, not for our Seasonal Lawn Care maintenance programs. We want our customers to continue with our service based on our success in creating a healthier greener lawn for them. We do, however, require a contractual arrangement for any new lawns we create, either from turf or seed. Any follow up lawn care treatments applied following laying the new lawn, no contract is required.
How do we know you are a reputable lawn care company?
As members of Which Trusted Trader and Checkatrade, and with over 200 positive reviews, you can feel reassured that your decision to invest in the Green Mile Lawn Care treatment program will be a good one. There are some lawn treatment companies who do not have the relevant experience or qualifications that we have. Your lawn needs specific nutrients at certain times of the year, we use several different types of fertilisers and treatments according to the requirements of your lawn, time of year, soil type and weather conditions. We are aware of some companies who use the same feed all year round, irrespective of the weather and who use products with a using high nitrogen content. Too much nitrogen will create thin top growth and neglect the roots, resulting in long term problems.
My lawn is beyond help is it still worth trying your service?
Absolutely!  A large majority of our customers have the same thoughts but have been surprised at the dramatic improvement in the condition and appearance of their lawn following the application of the Green Mile Lawn Care Seasonal Treatment Program.  Those troublesome weeds have died and not come back and the grass is lush and green.
Do I have to be in when you call?
The majority of our customers are not at home when we call to treat the lawn. Since all our vehicles and operatives carry all that they require to treat your lawn we can carry out the treatment as long as we have access to the lawns. If you want to be in when we call at your home to treat the lawn, we will do our best to accommodate your request.
Are your lawn care products safe for children and wildlife?
Yes they are safe. All we suggest is that you stay off the lawn after we have sprayed herbicide for two hours so that it has a chance to dry and be absorbed by the weeds. It is also advisable to keep grazing animals such as rabbits etc off the lawn for 2 weeks and not to let them feed off the grass for at least 2 weeks after treatment.  Do not use the first set of clippings for compost. All of our staff are trained and NPTC qualified to use herbicides and pesticides.
When is the best time to start having my Lawn treated?
We can start our Seasonal Lawn Care Program any time of year, there is never a bad time to start treating and improving a lawn.
I already have a gardener, why not use them?
We do not seek to replace you gardener or odd job man. We have access and know how to use lawn care treatment products not generally available to gardeners, which will substantially improve the condition of your lawn and help it stay healthy. Many gardeners do not have the relevant qualifications, experience or insurance and will just buy products from garden centres and charge you for spreading them.
I could buy lawn care products locally and apply them myself so why pay you to do it?
The professional seasonal fertilisers we use are specific for lawns and grassed areas and will feed your lawn up to 3 times longer (8-10 weeks) than the average garden centre fertiliser. Our herbicides will also control a broader range of weeds for longer. We guarantee that using our lawn care services will save you time and money.


Arrived on the day as expected, very thorough in carrying out all the above work.
