LawnCarePlus was started in 2002 and has serviced the Johannesburg area with excellence ever since.
We will inspect and analyze your lawn at no charge, as well as providing you with a detailed quotation in record time.
If needed, we will take a soil sample and a soil correction/amendment programme that will result in a healthy, green, weed-free turf.
Our teams are regular, trained personnel supervised by a retired gentleman and are dedicated to their tasks. Our business is owner operated and both Philippa and Ian are involved in the daily work schedules.
Our full equipped vehicles are all marked and our friendly and helpful staff are always identified by their uniform.
LawnCarePlus will tailor a treatment for you, based on your lawn requirements and vision for your garden
We undertake quarterly lawn seasonal treatments (every 3 months) that include:
Applying an eco-friendly surface insecticide with a PH adjuvant and lawn boost. This is a surface insecticide that controls ants, caterpillar, termites etc.
Applying our unique blend of organic fertilizers. Important to maintain the balance of macro and micro nutrients.
Spraying a selective herbicide for weed control. Generally speaking, broad leaf weeds from wonder lawn to clover (yellow creeping oxalis) are prolific from spring to autumn and need to be sprayed monthly with a selective herbicide that does not damage the grass.
Our professional machines are core aerators that run over your grass and remove cores of soil to alleviate compaction. Aeration is part of turf management and should be undertaken annually.
Alleviates Compaction builds up over the years and needs to be broken for the grass to grow in a healthy state.
Allows water and nutrients to reach the root zone. This is important for the turf to maintain color, density and resistance to fungus diseases and drought.
Breaks the thatch for better air penetration. The benefits from air circulation will show in the healthy state of the grass.
General Lawn Issues
We all have lawn issues in one form or the other. These include:-
This is a continuous all year round problem. We use a selective herbicide with an adjuvant for the most effective solution. We can resolve any weed problem.
Most insects increase their presence when the rains are upon us. We use an eco-friendly insecticide that is effective for most pests.
Trees and bushes get bigger and thicker every year and we sometimes do not notice this. There is a grass type for every situation and shade lawns are not always the solution.
Once we have inspected and analyzed the lawn, we will email a comprehensive report for you to make an informed decision.
Lawn makeovers include:-
Verticutting (scarifying) and aeration. Verticutting removes the thatch build up from past winters and revitalizers the lawn. Similar to a no. 1 haircut!
Top dressing if needed. This is primarily used to level the lawn but will add nutrients to the soil as well.
Installing shade tolerant grass-types. Every lawn has shade issues and the correct identification of grass type to be used is critical.
