As I have gained a lot of experience as a greenkeeper on golf courses, I have been able to apply my knowledge to domestic lawns to achieve the same results.

With your free lawn analysis, I will create a treatment programme tailored to meet your lawn’s requirements, as well as fitting in with your budget.

I will explain how each process of the programme works and how we use different products and machines for varying types of turf. For example, a less aggressive scarifier is used for lawns that contain a fescue/bent mix of grass as heavier machines can destroy the turf.

I will also explain why we only perform each type of service at certain times of the year. For example, we never perform scarification in the winter as the turf cannot rejuvenate at this time of year.

One of my specialities in turf care is eradicating lawn diseases and difficult weeds, as lawns in Nottinghamshire are prone to these. Some of these include:

  • Chafer Grubs - These are larvae of chafer beetles that feed on grass roots, destroying the turf
  • Leatherjackets - These are larvae of the crane fly (daddy-long-legs) usually found on golf courses in Nottinghamshire
  • Red Thread - This is the most common turf grass disease likely to be found in domestic lawns
  • Slender Speedwell - A particularly troublesome weed in Nottinghamshire which is very difficult to remove once established in turf

If you think that your lawn has many of these problems, and cannot be recovered, our Regener8 system may be suitable for you as it comes at an affordable price.

We now have the best lawn we have ever had thanks to Ian Stephens and Lawn Master

In the spring 2021 we had an infestation in the lawn and was told nothing could be done e.g. no scarifying as we would have no lawn left. After Lawn Master took over our lawn in May Ian scarified treated it, over seeded and put top soil on. The job was done efficiently, and with us watering we saw the improvement. July we now have the best lawn we have ever had thanks to Ian Stephen`s and Lawn Master.

Thank you,Thank you, Thank you!

I cannot praise Ian at LawnMaster enough.Since he started treating my garden about a year and a half ago, it has been totally transformed from weed paradise into beautiful lush grass. There are many things that I’ve had to stop spending money on because of the pandemic…this will not be one of them! Thank you,Thank you, Thank you!

Good reliable service that gets rid of the weeds and keeps the grass well fed

We use Lawnmaster Notts - run by Ian Stephens. As Lawnmaster's a franchise, you're dependent on the local franchisee - and with Ian & Co, it's effectively like dealing with a local family company. They're very experienced and very efficient, and they don't make unrealistic fantasy claims like "next week your lawn will be like a bowling green" - they just provide a good reliable service that gets rid of the weeds and keeps the grass well fed!

Friendly, helpful and professional

Ian Stephens from Lawn Master has been looking after my lawns since 2016. I have consistently had excellent service and my lawns have never been better. Whether Ian or Colin attend I know the work will be done properly and they are both friendly, helpful and professional. I would be happy to recommend this franchise.
