Lawns & hedges

Keeping lawns and hedges looking their best means regular mowing, clipping and sometimes more. Whether you're looking for a simple weekly trim, a sophisticated manicured look or specialist treatment to solve problems, Plant Concierge helps you find the people in your area who offer the lawn and hedge maintenance services you need.

Lawns provide large green areas that are excellent news for the environment. A well-kept lawn is as satisfying as a luxurious outdoor carpet.

But there's more to lawns than grass. A well-behaved lawn is the result of having the right type of grass growing in the right type of ground in the right type of climate. If your lawn is having problems, it's worth getting an expert in to find out why. And if you're about to sow or lay a new lawn, then you'll want to choose wisely to ensure it turns out the way you want it.

While regular mowing is all some lawns need to stay in shape, some need extra TLC to keep them in tip-top condition. A knowledgeable lawn care expert will easily be able to identify the cause of any problems in your lawn and know how to deal with them.

Providing structure, protection and privacy, hedges are formed from several woody shrubs planted together and trimmed to a single shape. Many different shrubs, including flowering ones, can be used for hedging, though some types are more suited for shaping than others. Some can even be clipped into fancy shapes (topiary).
