Top Questions

Why should I use Joe's?

As Trained Lawn Care specialists we can help you get the most out of your lawn so you can enjoy using it more! Your treatment plan is specific to your individual lawn and we want to keep you involved every step of the way. We only use professional weed killers and fertilisers that cannot be bought in the shops. These are stronger and more effective, so we show better results than off the shelf products. Using Joe's is also CHEAPER than doing it yourself!

Is it really cheaper than doing it myself?

YES! The Lawn Treatments we use are not available for general use. They are professional treatments that need to be applied by qualified individuals. Our products are also far more effective than products available in garden centres that require endless applications. Get for an Instant Quote!

How do I start?

Simply click on the tab in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, fill in your details and we will be in touch to arrange a convenient time to visit and carry out a FREE lawn analysis and quote.

When does it all start?

We always adapt our services and treatment plan specifically for you and we can start at any time of the year.

What if I am not in when you visit?

This is not a problem. As long as we have access to your lawns we will simply carry out your treatments as normal.

When will I see results?

Your lawn will start to look better in just 10 days with the correct weather conditions! We guarantee that Joe's will ensure your lawn then stays looking healthy, green and weed free.

Is there a contract?

No, there is no contract and you may cancel at any time. We like to think that you will stay with us after witnessing a healthier, greener and weed free lawn for yourself!

Are Joe's licensed?

The application of herbicides used by the Joe's Lawn Care staff requires training and certification to the National Proficiency Training Council (NPTC) standards. All of our Lawn Experts hold PA1 & PA6 licenses and are kept up to date with the latest training necessary.

Treatment Questions

Why do you recommend up to 5 visits a year?

We suggest these regular treatments to ensure the correct vital nutrients continually feed your lawn throughout the year and are applied at the best times. Our optional Winter treatment specifically targets moss and hardens the grass for winter.

When will you treat my lawns/surfaces?

You will find your next treatment date on each invoice. We will always come on this date unless we hear from you or the weather conditions are not right. We will send a seasonal treatment date reminder via email approximately 1 week before our visit, however please do make a note of this date to ensure we have access to your lawns on that day.

Is it all safe for kids and pets?

Yes it is. All we ask is that you keep off all areas until the treatments have dried (usually less than 2 hours). Your Joe's Lawn Care Expert will always let you know exactly what products they've used on your lawn and why.

What is Scarification?

This is a mechanical procedure for the removal of decaying material on the soils surface; this in turn opens up channels for water, air and nutrients to get through to the soil. Check out our SCARIFICATION page for more details.

What is Aeration?

This is an effective way to improve drainage and ensure oxygen supply to the turf roots. This procedure is vital to the remove and continued control of moss. Check out our AERATION page for more details.


This is the process of sowing new lawn seed into an existing lawn to assist in lawn rejuvenation. Check out our OVER SEEDING page for more details.

What is THATCH?

Thatch is another name for debris made up of things like leaves and other organic matter that build up naturally. An excessive thatch layer can restrict the movement of air, water, fertiliser and other materials to the roots of the grass, all of which are necessary for healthy turf growth.

Payment Questions

How do I pay?

You can either pay by Direct Debit on a monthly basis or pay per treatment on a PAYG basis. With the latter we leave an invoice after every treatment.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept card payments to your Joe's lawn expert. We also accept cheques, cash, or BACS.
