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.
