Biography

Introduction

Hi, I’m Jon, your local Lawn Master representative in the Weald of Kent. Some of the areas that I cover include: Tonbridge Wells, Tenterden, Hastings, Sevenoaks, Uckfield, Shorham, Ashford and other surrounding areas.

Jon’s Background

I have worked in the turf/golf industry for over 15 years, and have prepared football pitches at the highest level in the premier league. My career includes working at the following locations:

  • Dartford Golf Club where I started my training in the turf care industry and studied for my BTEC Diploma in Tunbridge.
  • Gillingham Football Club, where I spent a year as Head Groundsman
  • Chelsea Football Club, where I spent six years as Assistant Head Groundsman at the club’s Cobham training ground.

At Chelsea, I helped oversee a team of ten groundstaff in the day-to-day maintenance of 32 natural grass pitches which were built, maintained and presented to the highest standards.

You can see some birds-eye-view pictures of these at the bottom of this page.

Jon’s Achievements

It was a privilege to prepare playing surfaces for some of the world’s best footballers, and I was able to develop skills in all aspects of turf management.

In addition to the practical work, I also undertook qualifications in leadership and management and spent time training and supervising apprentices and work experience students as part of my role.

I found passing on skills to the next generation of turf management extremely rewarding.

What Jon Can Do For You

With all of my experience, I can help you with any issues your lawn has including, but not limited to:

  • Chafer Grubs
  • Leatherjackets
  • Red Thread
  • Fusarium
  • Moss
  • Weeds
  • Casting Worms

I will explain what type of fertiliser is best suited for your lawn, as all lawns are different, therefore require different feeds programmes. I will also advise you of the best method to control difficult weeds.

If moss is a problem in your lawn, I can control it by putting together a treatment plan of various treatments to erradicate the problem.

If you would like a free lawn analysis, call me for a free quotation and I will create an ideal treatment plan that fits both your budget and makes your lawn look great.
