Biography

Introduction

Hi, we’re Lyn and Andy, your local Lawn Master representatives based in Bradford. Some of the areas where we treat lawns include: Bingley, Shipley, Harrogate, Ripon, Knaresborough, Leeds, Otley, Wetherby, Collingham and other surrounding areas.

Lyn’s Background

Both Lyn and Andy have been greenkeeping for in excess of 20 years and have held full time positions at various golf courses and hotel venue golf courses.

Lyn started greenkeeping when she was 17 years old, where she first undertook work experience at Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club. They employed her as a part time seasonal worker as an Assistant Greenkeeper. It was during her time here that she decided she wanted to pursue a career in turf maintenance.

Lyn later undertook seasonal placements at Loch Lomond Golf Club in Scotland, where she was part of the team that hosted the JetStream tournament, and at St. Pierre Hotel & Country Club in Wales.

Lyn then worked at Hollins Hall Golf Club in West Yorkshire, which at the time was a new construction. She joined the team in its final growing-in stage prior to opening. She was later offered an opportunity as Head Greenkeeper at Headley Golf Club in West Yorkshire, tasked with improving the presentation of a 9-hole course on a limited budget.

Andy’s Background

Andy started his greenkeeping career over 20 years ago. His first full time employment as a greenkeeper was at Hollins Hall Golf Club where Lyn also worked.

Andy later worked at Moor Allerton Golf Club in Leeds, which is known for being one of the finest and well kept 27 hole golf courses in the UK.

After working in Leeds, Andy then worked at West End Golf Club, which is a very well established 18 hole golf course in Halifax. Since then Andy has also volunteered for the Open Support Team on behalf of BIGGA, having the opportunity to work at Carnoustie, Royal Liverpool and Muirfield.

Lyn’s Achievements

Lyn is a fully qualified greenkeeper with a HND in Golf Course Management which she achieved with distinction.

Her qualifications and experience enable her to deal with turf in the worst conditions, transforming grass areas into the best they can be. Her experience has been most helpful when it comes to dealing with customers lawns, as they are often in their worst state before they start receiving treatments.

Andy’s Achievements

Andy is also fully qualified with NVQ qualifications in Greenkeeping. His vast experience in the industry, combined with Lyn’s, make them an ideal team to provide lawn care services in Yorkshire.

What Lyn & Andy Can Do For You

With their many years of experience in the industry, Lyn and Andy can help you achieve the lawn you have always wanted. Some of the services they offer include:

  • Tailored fertiliser programmes - Each lawn is different and should therefore receive a bespoke fertiliser plan. I can explain why your lawns may need a different products compared to others and why this would be beneficial.
  • Scarification and Over-Seeding - This is an essential process that all lawns require periodically to remove thatch layers and organic matter from your lawns. Over-seeding allows new grass to grow to create a thicker and more dense sward.
  • Aeration - This is a key treatment that should be carried out a minimum of once per year to provide many benefits to your lawn such as improved air circulation and improved drainage.
  • Application of various top dressings - We can apply various dressings to deal with whatever problems your lawns have. Top dressings can be applied after aeration for example to improve drainage.

Every lawn they treat is different and each require tailored programmes to get the best results. Lyn & Andy will put together a free no obligation quotation for you that clearly shows the best plan of action to achieve the lawn you want. Please feel free to call them for a free lawn analysis.
