    We engaged Ian to rejuvenate our damaged and moss-filled lawn following extensive building works. Ian conducted a comprehensive site visit which included a visual inspection and soil sample testing, before making valuable recommendations, not only about treatment of the lawn, but about other aspects of the lawn and garden area. We were impressed with the amount of work Ian carried out and we are looking forward to seeing the results of his labours as the treatment takes effect. Dane Batt

    My front and rear lawn were embedded with moss and were in a dreadful state as a result of the drought this last summer. Ian of Shrekfeet visited and advised scarification, aeration, top dressing and over-seeding which I agreed. This was carried out at the beginning of November and, to my astonishment - not Ian's as he assured me it would - the grass is all coming back. Ian provides an excellent service, and I have taken out their monthly lawn treatment plan. I thoroughly recommend Shrekfeet if you want professional lawn care and a first-class, cheerful service Bob F
