Before using 1840 lawn care, my grass was bald in places and full of moss in others, with lots of weeds too. After only one season of treatment, I have a lawn! Luscious grass that looks so dense, very green and healthy. I'm very happy with the results so far and look forward to further treatments making the lawn stronger this year so that it can withstand the dry periods better (no more bald patches!).

Mike is passionate about his work. His goal was to remove the moss and bring our lawn back to life and he has done this and it looks great. I would thoroughly recommend him as he is also really knowledgeable and polite.

Mike was great from the moment I called him to discuss the turfing requirements we had. Nothing was too much trouble and when the day came to lay the turf the torrential rain didn’t deter him from getting the job completed. Everything promised has been fulfilled and I would highly recommend him.

Have been using Mike for a year now and we are over the moon at the transformation of our lawn! It is healthier, greener and weed free. Mike is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain the treatments - we thoroughly recommend his services.

So impressed with the service from Mike at 1840 Lawn Care. I had tried to salvage my front lawn myself but after digging for the best part of a wet Saturday I realised it was far too much work. Called in Mike and he quickly reassured me how he would tackle it. He spent time going over the area with the correct machinery (paying attention to underground cables that couldn't be damaged) and laid our new turf.
His advice was perfect and after following his watering routine, I was able to carry out my first cut in 2 weeks. The lawn has turned out way better than I had hoped and has received so many compliments from passers by.
Mike really does know his stuff and his superb work ethic shows and the results speak for themselves in the pictures.
The images show my first effort followed by the new lawn and the results after 2 weeks (and after first mow)

About 1840 Lawn Care
Hi, my name is Mike and I have been in the turf industry all my adult life. I have a degree in turfgrass science and 10+ years experience.
I started 1840 Lawn Care to offer something different to everyone else. I want to deliver quality that\'s affordable whilst also being environmentally friendly.
It\'s not easy. If it was, everyone would be doing it.
What\'s with the name? It starts in the 17th Century when large homes and wealthy landowners had the grass shorn closely.
Then in 1830 Edwin Budding invented the lawn mower. This drastically reduced the man power required to cut the lawn and so allowed the less wealthy to have a nice lawn too.
This invention along with globalisation during the 1840s made lawns fashionable across the world.
