How we operate …

1. What do you do?  

Weed Man treat lawns by encouraging the growth of the right grasses and by discouraging other plants and weeds from spoiling the appearance and usefulness of the lawn that you want for your friends’, family’s and your own pleasure and enjoyment.

2. Who do you do this for? 

Anyone who owns or is responsible for a property with a lawn needing improvement or maintenance – business owners as well as home owners – Weed Man work extensively in the residential market as well in various commercial markets such as small businesses, landlords and flat management companies, where they provide high levels of service and value.

3. Where do you operate?

Weed Man’s services are available in all areas where they have exclusively appointed a dealer to provide our range of services: please see contact page on our website or apply for your free healthy lawn analysis.

4. How often do you visit?  

Weed Man agree a lawn care programme of treatments with you and schedules these, in sequence, at appropriate times of the year: you are kept regularly in touch with what he does for you and he will contact you in advance as required: he will probably work on your lawn every other month during the growing season but, given 48 hours notice, is always available to visit.

5. How much does a treatment cost? 

Anything from £15 (inc. VAT) upwards but Weed Man provide and charge for your lawn care programme overall. Weed Man’s guarantee that you will end up satisfied means that you will be invoiced what you agreed.

6. How can I pay? 

Weed Man accept cheques, major debit/credit cards, standing orders or, if you insist, cash.

7. Do I have to pay all in one go? 

If you offer you may find your local Weed Man will give you an attractive discount for paying in advance for your lawn treatment programme: but you can part pay in stages or in equal instalments, or you can pay on an invoice basis without a charge for 30 day credit, as long as you agree this in advance with your local Weed Man: the choice is yours.

8. Do I have to sign a contract?

No:  Weed Man will take you at your word and trust you to raise any questions or difficulties that might affect what has been agreed previously between you.

9. How can it really cost less than my doing it myself?

Weed Man’s proprietary lawn treatment products are formulated to be both effective and best possible value: they are purchased on a trade basis and in bulk, applied exactly at the rate specified using regularly calibrated specialist lawn care equipment, in the most efficient possible way: there is no wastage, no excess applied or left over, no mistakes, no inferior DIY store equipment underutilised and taking up shed room.

10. When is the best time to start the service? 

There is no “best time” as once the right lawn care programme has been established it makes sense to start it straight away, of course making due allowance for the time of year: each season has its own priorities, obviously with least opportunity for progress in the winter months.

11. Should I try the service even thought I think my lawn is beyond saving? 

Probably yes, but only if your local Weed Man has inspected your lawn and discussed and agreed with you a renovation programme that offers better value than either re-turfing or some alternative landscape solution: grass is always a significantly less costly way of covering your outside space.

12. Do I need to be at home when you visit? 

No: as long as you have arranged necessary access with your local Weed Man and ensured that they have been made aware of your requirements for the protection of your family, any visitors, any pets and of course the security of your property.

13. How will I know when you have been?

Easy: there will be a Weed Man sign on your lawn and a lawn condition report (and perhaps an invoice) in a watertight bag either on your doorstep or in your letterbox.

14. How quickly will I see results?  

Usually in 1 – 2 weeks when the lawn has been fed or a weed control treatment applied, sometimes less: obviously straightaway after aeration, scarification, top dressing or similar treatments.

15. What if your treatments don’t work? 

If your local Weed Man agrees that a treatment has not worked, probably because of bad weather but perhaps for other reasons, then it will be re-applied/re-treated free of charge: if you have failed to follow watering or other instructions we simply ask that you take this into account and offer what you think is a fair payment in the circumstances.

16. What if I already have a Gardener?

 Weed Man are always pleased to work alongside competent gardeners to supplement the work they are committed to do for their customers: Weed Man ask householders to make sure that their gardener is fully aware of all the services that they have been asked to provide.
