The Lawnologist

Detail oriented service

The Lawnologist is owned and run by its founders Mark and Lauren Walsh. Having spent many years in front line emergency services, Mark has turned his passion for transforming lawns and gardens into an ethical and thriving business. Mark has been trained and mentored, one to one, by the president of the UK Lawn Care Association of which The Lawnologist is a proud and active member.

Avoiding the use of synthetic fertilisers and damaging chemicals as much as possible and still achieving a lawn of thick, lush, green grass that is weed and moss free is the focus of the business.

Each lawn care program is bespoke and tailored to the lawn rather than a ‘one size fits all’ approach that is often and commonly seen in the lawn care industry.

Customer service is just as important to the business and Mark and Lauren take as much pride in building relationships with their customers as they do in giving them a great lawn.

The Lawnologist has invested in the very best machinery and equipment that allows even the largest of lawns to be treated, accurately and precisely with little intrusion and mess. It means a treatment program can be bespoke and tailored to any size lawn, whether it’s a small family lawn or a large lawn belonging to stately home.

The Lawnologist provides bespoke and specialist lawn care in Colchester, Sudbury, Halstead, Ipswich, Suffolk, Essex and surrounding villages paying special attention to every detail of work to ensure the complete satisfaction of each customer.

We had a lawn renovation and consultation package with Mark. Our lawn was initially full of weeds at one side and many patches with out grass. Mark fixed all of that with his treatments, scarification and advice. Now the lawn is completely lush(see picture). I totally recommend Mark. His packages are value for money.

Mark offers a very professional and friendly service. He has managed to revive our very troubled, high footfall lawn. His knowledge, expertise, and passion are evident, and we are so pleased with the results so far. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone that needs help with lawn care.

Mark is a very professional and knowledgeable man. He has literally saved our lawn from the ravages of last summer . He has aerated and fed the soil and has overseeded a few areas of the lawn that needed some extra help and we are now on an annual programme of restoration. He explains what he is going to do and why and often does a bit extra too! You feel you are getting very sound advice from someone who really knows their stuff ! He is conscious of cost and will only recommend what is needed and so only resorts to total renovation of the lawn if it doesn’t respond to earlier treatments .

I have had the pleasure of having used Mark at the Lawnologist to completely renovate my lawns for the last six months. Our lawn REALLY suffered in the last heat wave and we thought that was the end of having a lawn to enjoy and would replace it with some sort of hard landscaping - even though i really love having grass. I decided to contact the Lawnologist with no real expectations as i have family members who use 'well known' companies and haven't had the best, or cheapest of relationships. Mark turned up, on time and with a beaming smile - clearly loving his career. He filled me with so much information, in very basic terms (so i could retain what he was saying) and how he could transform the area in a realistic time scale. He really did know his stuff and could prove it right in front of me. We agreed a well priced plan for the lawn and I've just left him to it, and have seen the magic unfold. The lawn is now unrecognisable from its dessert like appearance those few months back. He has completely killed off, renovated, seeded, nurtured, fed and conditioned the grass and soil. Don't underestimate how important the soil is over the appearance of the lawn (something i have learnt from him). The lawn is looking fantastic already even though we are early in the year and am excited for the late spring and summer months. Ive now booked him in for two more areas of full renovation as i'm so pleased. Honestly, if you want someone who knows his stuff, loves his job and loves to see results and happy customers, then contact Mark. You have nothing to lose, the quotes are very details and open and he's very responsive to messages. Thanks again Lawnologist. #grassbae

I was lucky enough to be the Lawnologist’s first customer. His expertise and unbelievable customer service was very clear from the outset. Mark has revisited my lawn to make sure that the service he provided came to fruition. I have recommended him to others and we all agree that the service is first class. I would definitely say he is the no1 lawn care specialist in the south of England. Many thanks
