The Secret to a Beautiful lawn... ...revealed with the help, advice and expertise of the UK’s leading lawn treatment company. GreenThumb specialise in lawn care treatments and are the original lawn treatment provider in the UK with over 25 years experience. We are the UK’s leading lawn treatment company and now look after the lawns of over 450,000 customers through our network of 220 branches nationwide. Here are six tips on how to keep your lawn looking beautiful throughout the summer:

1. Grass is made up of 93per cent water and needs to be watered to survive. Watering your lawn for just 20 minutes a day, three times a week is enough to keep your lawn green throughout the summer. It costs around £1 a week if you are on a meter. 2. Try to water lawns in the evening when the temperature is lower and the sun low in the sky. GreenThumb have created the Oasis Treatment Programme, a water conserver that can cut down the amount of water needed for the lawn by up to 80per cent.

3.

short, which leaves the grass stressed and at risk of disease. For a healthy lawn you need to mow your grass no lower than 1¼ inches long. Make sure your lawnmower is regularly serviced and don’t fill it on the lawn or you’ll risk spilling petrol on the grass which can kill it.

4. More homeowners complain about moss on their lawn than any other problem. When moss is present, it’s often a sign that the grass isn’t as healthy as it should be. One cause is thatch - leftover grass cuttings - which allows water to collect on the surface and provides the perfect breeding ground for moss. GreenThumb recommends scarifying your lawn to allow the grass to grow healthily. 5. Make sure your lawnmower is regularly serviced and don’t fill it on the lawn or you’ll risk spilling petrol on the grass 6. GreenThumb’s new treatment programmes will get your lawn into perfect shape this year. With discounts of up to 22% and the option to spread the cost over the 12 months with Direct Debit, the ability to have a beautiful lawn has never been easier or more cost effective to achieve.

Millions of homeowners actually cut their lawn too
