Lawn Consultancy and Sound Advice

Grass Clippings - Lawn ConsultancyBeing a lawn specialist is a bit like being a Doctor at a social gathering! 

As soon as fellow guests find out what you 'do for a living' the list of lawn problems and questions keep coming from those keen to seek out your knowledge before you leave for the evening.  We reply 'We are into weeds and grass.' 

A friend of mine who is a Doctor tells fellow guests that he’s an Undertaker as this response stops the ‘Oh my knee hurts’ questions.  It is the same with problem lawns.... Lawn care is after all a science like biology, basically botany with some, physics and chemistry and soil science thrown in for good measure.  Understand the science and practice of turf culture and you will soon possess the flow chart to installing and maintaining a great lawn.

Having said this, to acquire a degree in turf culture takes years of study and examinations and also years of 'on the job training' too which supplements the theory, the final degree examinations being some 21 hours long. And you thought it was just 'grass'...

The great thing about being into lawns is that you are always in demand and undertaking Lawn Consultancy contracts forms a big part of our business concept.  We are also rarely out of work when the weather lets us perform our usual work activities.

There are a lot of so called lawn experts and specialists alike who appear to give incorrect information about basic and more in-depth lawn treatments, cultural and mechanical practices associated with lawns and their care.  Why, we are not sure.

The Grass Clippings Lawn Advice Blog has over 1,000 technical articles to help you creat a better lawn.  Over 35 years of hands on practical, technical and commercial knowledge of lawns and their care available free at your fingertips.  Use the information freely as you will not find better on the internet.  Plus it's all free.
