Here are some key considerations when hiring a lawn care professional: Are they qualified to use herbicides? A lawn care technician should possess PA1 and PA6 level accreditations, which demonstrates that they can use herbicides correctly and responsibly.

Do they hold a legitimate Waste Licence? A lawn care technician should hold one of these if they will be collecting and removing waste from your garden or property.

Do they carry and use the correct PPE (Personal Protection Equipment)? Essential when using weed or moss control treatments, a lawn care technician should have the appropriate safety equipment with them when they are likely to be spraying – this also includes wearing suitable clothing for working outside and/or with industrial or chemical equipment.

 Do they need to treat the whole lawn with herbicides? It isn’t always necessary to treat an entire area with weed killer or treatment sprays. The aim of our professional qualifications is for lawn care technicians to use the minimum amount of product to achieve the best result. 

 Are they able to use products that will not cause harm to children or pets? A professional technician should be able to provide suitable options for a lawn care treatment which will not cause harm. They should also ensure that you are aware of any treatments which will require you to keep your children and/or pets indoors for a brief time while the work is carried out. 

 Are they insured? Every lawn care company should have evidence of Public Liability Insurance. While the chances of something going awry are slim, you will want to be assured that any damage can be easily rectified - without incurring any further costs to you. 

Unfortunately, not all service providers are willing or able to commit to optimum standards of lawn care practice – which risks devaluing the skills of our operators and contributes to bringing our valued industry into disrepute. 

 We would always recommend using a professional and certified lawn care professional, who is committed to working to the highest level of industry standards and has the correct level of accreditation to carry out any work on your property.
