The one-day course, to be held at the Old Fold Manor Golf Club on October 10th 2023, is described as opportunity to learn how to achieve a more impressive and healthy lawn all year round. In the course, attendees will learn the science behind renovating their lawn this autumn to ensure it is in tiptop shape come spring.

The learning will begin with classroom training led by leading lawn expert Richard Salmon from Pro Lawncare UK.

A lawn care yearly calendar will be set out where attendees can learn exactly what should be done to their lawns each month of the calendar year. 

The classroom will be followed by a hands-on workshop with Allett MD Austin Jarrett. He will talk about the company's cartridge system, showing how each cartridge works and how to use them. There will be the opportunity to use a range of machines and learn the techniques of how to employ a number of lawn tools to get the best from a lawn. The price of the course will include a soil analysis test of attendees' own lawns from a sample brought  on the day. Results can be used to help develop a personalised lawncare plan.
