Managing Editor is a Judge and Lawn Speaker for The RHS

Grass Clippings - Mike SeatonOur Managing Editor, Mike Seaton, is a Fellow Member of The Institute of Groundsmanship, now called the Grounds Management Association and has had an extensive career in the turf and lawn care industries.

'Being a lawn specialist is a bit like being a Doctor at a party. The lawn is after all the carpet of the room outside and the lawn is often the largest part of the garden and the most neglected by many.'  

Mike has been included in the Royal Horticultural Society Speaker and Judge online listings to give talks about lawns or judge lawns and turf at gardening shows.

The knowledge base found on this well used web site is supported by over 40 years; hands on practical, technical and commercial experience in the sports turf and leisure industry.  If you think you do not need qualifications to practice professionally in the science and practice of turf culture, I'll tell you that my final degree exams were 21 hours long and all from memory and no course work!  They were the days, when you had to work really hard to pass examinations and I was still working full time as a Groundsman and Contractor throughout. 

With a structured career path ranging from a humble Groundsman marking the white lines on a football pitch or preparing a first class cricket wicket, or selling turf care products to the professional industry to treating weeds on golf courses and renovating lawns large and small for everyday people or Royalty.  You see, they all have a problem lawn so why should you be different?

Mike & his Team of Turf Professionals have developed unique lawn and garden care products to include:

CastClear - Non pesticide lawn worm case deterrent

Indigo Garden Spray Due - Garden spray indicator dye

Lawn Quencher - Lawn Dry Patch Remedy Tablet

'We sincerely hope that we can assist you with your lawn through our other web sites of and also and the 1,522 lawn related articles on this lawn advice blog.'

Hi Mike
I am looking for a lawn care speaker for our gardening club in Oxfordshire.
Do you do evening talks or have any suggestions.

Hi Sue, we sent you an email in response.
