Main lawn care issues in Dawlish

Dawlish is 12 miles south of the capital of Devon, Exeter. It is straight across the estuary of the river Exe from Exmouth. It contains a real variety of houses, from small terraces to larger homes with wonderful sea views. There are also a lot of new build housing estates being built. Lawn care in the Dawlish and Dawlish Warren area is certainly needed and presents a variety of challenges.

Being on the coast, the soil is generally good but sandy. There can be some seams of clay. Dawlish is on the coast and made famous by the main railway line which runs along the sea wall. Older lawns are often compacted though so aerating and top dressing and is always useful in these situations. The major issue is drought in the summers from drying winds, sandy soil and the hot sun.

Red Thread is in the area. Dawlish does not seem to suffer from pest problems too badly, although chafer grubs are sometimes trouble.

Lawns in Dawlish can look fantastic. They just need regular treatments and an expert to spot problems before they spread. If you live in Dawlish, get in touch with The Lawn Man today.
