Across the UK, homeowners face various lawn problems that can affect the aesthetics and health of their gardens. From the wet and often unpredictable climate to common issues such as soil compaction and shade, these factors can lead to damaged lawns that detract from a property’s overall appearance and value.


Recognising the importance of a well-maintained lawn, LawnDoc has over 40 years of expertise in identifying and solving these common lawn problems. Our team is equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to restore your lawn to its former glory, providing effective solutions to ensure a vibrant and healthy garden.

Moss Removal

Identifying Moss

Moss infestation is a common issue in many UK lawns, thriving in conditions of poor drainage, excessive shade, and low soil fertility. Recognisable by its dense, green, or yellow mat-like appearance, moss can quickly overtake a lawn, suffocating the grass beneath.


The Solution

LawnDoc’s moss removal services are designed to effectively tackle this issue head-on. We use treatments that target and kill moss, followed by mechanical removal methods such as scarification to physically extract the moss from the lawn. However, removing moss is only part of the solution. To prevent its return, we also focus on addressing the underlying causes, improving drainage and introducing shade-tolerant grass varieties where necessary.

Patchy Grass Repair

Identifying Patchy Grass

Patchy grass can detract from a lawn’s aesthetics, caused by factors such as soil compaction, nutrient deficiencies, and pest damage. Signs of patchiness include uneven growth and bare spots that fail to thrive despite regular watering.


The Solution

At LawnDoc, we approach patchy grass with a full range of solutions. We start with aeration to loosen up compacted soil, making it easier for air and water to get down to the roots. Then, overseeding helps cover any bare spots, leading to thicker, more even growth. We also come up with a fertilisation plan just for your lawn, giving it exactly what it needs to recover and thrive. Our personalised treatment plans are all about meeting your lawn’s unique requirements, ensuring it grows back stronger and more luscious.

Disease Prevention

Identifying Lawn Diseases

Lawn diseases such as red thread and fusarium patch (snow mould) are common issues in the UK, with symptoms ranging from discoloured patches to web-like fungal growths. These diseases can quickly escalate, causing significant damage if not addressed promptly.


The Solution 

At LawnDoc, our approach to preventing disease in your lawn involves carefully chosen fungicide treatments and promoting good lawn care habits that help keep disease at bay. Proper mowing, watering, and fertilisation play vital roles in maintaining lawn health. Spotting any issues early and getting them checked out by our professionals is key to managing diseases effectively, ensuring we can step in with the right treatment at the right time

Pet Damage Repair

Identifying Pet Damage

Pet damage is easily identifiable through urine burn spots and areas worn away by frequent pet activity. These damages not only affect the lawn’s appearance but can also lead to long-term health issues for the grass.


The Solution

LawnDoc offers specialised services designed to address pet-related damage, providing treatments to neutralise urine spots and overseeding to rejuvenate areas worn by frequent pet activity. Additionally, we recommend the selection and installation of more resilient grass varieties, designed to withstand pet use. Creating designated pet areas within your garden is a strategic measure to minimise future damage, ensuring that your lawn remains both healthy and visually appealing.

Addressing common lawn problems promptly and effectively is key to maintaining a healthy, attractive lawn. At LawnDoc, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive approach to lawn care, from diagnosing issues to implementing solutions that offer long-lasting results. Whether you’re battling moss, patchiness, disease, or pet damage, our team is ready to restore your lawn to its optimum health.
