We initially engaged Ainsty Landscapes to lay turf after major building work. Jonathan's attention to detail and hard work preparing the ground impressed us as such we asked Jonathan to prepare and plant all the borders for us. Again the preparation and planting was excellent. We can recommend Jonathan as somebody who has great integrity and is prepared to do the hard part - the preparation
When we moved to our present house the lawns looked passable from a distance but on closer examination were an imperfect cover of a previous wood yard and builder's rubble. It had no depth or quality. Jonathan analysed the problem and he stripped away both the top cover and the rubble underneath. A new base for the lawn was established and new quality turf laid. After a few weeks the lawn looked completely different, with all old grass species removed.It has added greatly to the appearence of the lawns and the house.
Two years ago I contacted Ainsty Lawncare & Landscapes as my lawn had a large amount of moss, weeds and was a little sparse. Jonathan assessed the situation and began a treatment programme involving Scarification, Hollow-Tine Aeration, Overseeding, Topdressing and Fertilising. My lawn has now improved immensely to the extent there are no signs of moss or weeds.
