Our expert gardeners go beyond mere mowing; our service includes fertilisation to nourish your lawn, aeration to improve soil structure and water absorption, and effective moss control treatments. Our goal is to ensure your lawn is aesthetically pleasing and healthy from the roots up.

We identify the requirements of the different grassed areas on your site and match the best type of mowing equipment to suit each area.

"Hedge Trimming"Hedge Trimming & Pruning in Howth

Hedges serve as the backbone of many gardens, offering privacy and structure. Our expert hedge trimming service maintains the health and shape of your hedges, ensuring they complement your garden’s overall design.

Whether you aim for the sharp, clean lines of formal hedging or prefer a softer, more natural appearance, our team has the expertise to achieve your vision, fostering healthy growth and precise form.

 


Planting Services

A diverse and well-planned selection of plants can transform any garden into a dynamic landscape full of color and life. At Grasshopper Services, our gardeners specialise in bespoke planting services. From selecting the right plants that will thrive in your garden’s unique conditions to their planting and ongoing care, we are here to guide you through the process.

Our planting designs consider color, bloom times, and plant heights to create visually captivating arrangements that bring joy throughout the year.

Edging

Professional edging is crucial for achieving a polished look in your garden. It defines the borders between your lawn, pathways, and beds, creating a crisp, clean aesthetic. Our edging services are tailored to enhance the natural beauty of your garden, adding definition and making your flowers and foliage stand out. Whether it’s curving around a flower bed or straight lines along a path, our precise edging techniques provide a manicured finish that elevates the overall appearance of your garden.

Invasive Weed Clearance

We are now able to remove and treat Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam, Giant Hogweed and other invasive weeds safely and with the knowledge to prevent it returning. If Japanese Knotweed is not treated correctly, it will spread very quickly through the grounds.  We use a herbicide to treat Japanese Knotweed rather than pulling and cutting this invasive weed as even the smallest stem or root can grow into a new plant and roots can shoot laterally.

We can also provide selective weed killer which can be applied to front reception lawns and cricket wickets to remove dandelions and daisies. Moss can also be treated on tennis courts, netball court, pathways and playgrounds, reducing the risk to children when playing sports.

The best way to treat invasive weeds is effectively and efficiently using the best methods available for the required weed. For a free quotation to remove the Japanese Knotweed from your site, please contact us


"Weed Control"Weed Control

Grasshopper Services provide weed control throughout the year using a weed control based application that is safe and approved. Weed control is part of your grounds maintenance service, preventing weeds appearing over your site. The use of weed control substances and application by Croppers complies with CHAS standards.

There are many reasons to have an approved weed control programme in place:

  1. Helps to keep a weed free and clean environment
  2. Grounds and walk ways are more pleasing on the eye and will promote a good image of the site.
  3. Ensures that the grounds are safe, with less chance of broken slabs and tarmac caused by weed growth.
  4. Weed control can result in cost saving as less money would be spent on repairing and re-constructing pavements and playgrounds.

Tree Surgery

Trees add character and grandeur to any garden but require expert care to remain healthy and safe. Our tree surgery services include careful pruning to encourage growth, crown reduction to maintain size and shape, and the safe removal of diseased or dangerous trees. Our certified arborists are skilled in diagnosing and treating tree diseases, ensuring your garden’s trees continue to thrive and contribute to the ecosystem of your outdoor space.

Stump Grinding

Tree stumps can be an eyesore and pose a risk to safety in your garden. Our efficient stump grinding service removes these remnants, clearing the way for new planting or garden features. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we ensure the complete removal of stumps, leaving your garden neat and hazard-free.

Power Cleaning

Our power cleaning service breathes new life into your garden’s hard surfaces. Dirt, algae, and moss can dull patios, decks, driveways, and walkways over time. Our powerful cleaning techniques remove this buildup, revitalizing the appearance of these surfaces and making them safer to walk on. This service not only enhances the beauty of your garden but also extends the life of your hard landscaping features.

Weed Clearance and Weed Control

Weeds can quickly overwhelm a garden, detracting from its beauty and competing with your plants for vital nutrients and water. Our comprehensive weed clearance and control strategy includes removing existing weeds and applying preventative measures to inhibit their return. Maintaining a regular weed control schedule keeps your garden looking its best, ensuring that your plants have the space and resources they need to flourish.

Would highly recommend Grasshopper. They were out with us today trimming hedges and filling in a gap where a part of an old hedge had died. They did a super job and the hedge looks great again. They were out with us twice previously pruning a pear tree. We have always found them to be extremely reliable, always come when they say. Also they really know their stuff about plants and trees, have very pleasant staff and the prices are reasonable. Will definitely use again!

Damian transformed my garden in a morning form a bit of a mess into a much more manageable space. I'm delighted with future potential of the garden and look forward to working with Grasshopper services again. Worth mentioning impressive horticultural knowledge and a considered approach to pruning/removing plants. Thank you!

We live part of the time in Dublin and needed someone to look after our raised flower beds when we are away. We hired Grasshopper Services and have been very pleased with their work. Damian is the landscape specialist who works on our property. We are ever amazed at his knowledge of plants and their needs. He does an amazing job trimming and pruning and preparing the gardens for the winter. He also does an excellent job keeping the weeds at bay. We have a walled garden with no back entrance so Damian has to carry the waste through our Victorian rowhouse. He is very conscientious and careful when traversing our home. He is always on time. I would wholeheartedly recommend Grasshopper Services and especially Damian to look after a garden.
