What kind of lawn feed do we use?
We at Lawn & Weed Expert use specially-formulated fertilisers that are not available to the general public - only to industry professionals like us.
Using the wrong amount of lawn feed or the wrong combination of nutrients can result in a variety of issues (such as fertiliser burn), so we strongly recommend leaving this job to the experts. We offer a professional lawn fertiliser service that will help your grass to stay in tip-top shape; we are based in Cardiff, but this service is available throughout South Wales.
