About Us

Specialists in the maintenance and restoration of lawns

I’m Robert Martin, founder of Top Lawn. In 2014 we became independent and launched Top Lawn. Over the years I have been able to expand my team and develop the business further. I founded Top Lawn after being in the lawn treatment business since 2004 and I previously owned a Countrywide Lawn Doctor franchise. My career has been driven by a passion for what I do and the pleasure of seeing such great results and happy clients.

With my industry expertise I have developed various programmes for a variety of lawns both big and small and all with astonishing results. I am very proud of the service Top Lawn provides and to this end I am delighted to say I still have many customers who were there right at the beginning.

Top Lawn is currently a team of three, Myself, Russell Bishop and Liam Midwinter who have been with me since January 2010 and 2018 respectively.  We are all fully trained and qualified in the application of fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides. We manage lawns from 50m2 up to 8500m2 no job too big or small.

The Top Lawn team is truly dedicated to excellent customer care, as well as producing the best results possible on your lawn(s).

The Top Lawn team very much look forward to being your lawn treatment Specialists.

Robert Martin – Owner

Robert founded Top Lawn in 2004, initially part of the Countrywide LawnDoctor franchise, but becoming a privately owned company in 2014.

Robert moved into the lawn treatment profession which matched his passion for lovely lawns and providing an excellent service. With over 20 years of experience and professional qualifications Robert has sought to expand and establish the business as a leading specialist in the area.

As part of the launch Robert embarked on marketing campaigns but believed in the personal touch so delivered thousands of door drops himself, sealing his reputation as a local, personal professional.

That dedication resulted in gaining the first 100 customers. Many of those customers remain to this day, including the very first one.

Russell Bishop – Team Member

Russell is a much valued member of the Top Lawn team since he joined in February 2010,  following a successful career change from a CNC machine programmer within the engineering industry.

In the last 10 years he has trained and qualified in the application of all materials related to lawn maintenance and is highly skilled in the use of lawn care machinery.

In addition to day to day operations, Russell has developed strong long-term professional relationships with customers and is a respected source of advice and useful tips regarding lawn care.

Russell is also keen to participate in his local community, taking an active role to support many people. This was highlighted by the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, whereby his professionalism, kindness and efficiency came to the fore.

Liam Midwinter – Team Member

Liam joined Top Lawn in September 2018 and has successfully trained and gained a wealth of experience in the application of the materials and equipment used with in the lawn care industry.

As a dedicated member of the team he continues to receive excellent customer testimonials and feedback.

As well as being popular with his customers Liam provides the highest level of service by keeping up to date with the latest products and methods of application and providing useful advice about lawn care.

Mr A D

"Frankly, I had abandoned hope. My 2 acres had been surrendered to weeds and moss over 17 years. The area was too big for me to even begin to put right alone.

I sought expert help – and chose to use Robert and his team. Great decision! In just 12 months, I have recovered a magnificent lush, green lawn that I never expected to see again. I happily recommend Robert and his team.

They know what they are talking about."

Mrs B N

"Robert prepared a detailed plan to sort out the problems. Thanks to his expert knowledge and the efficiency of the treatment, my lawn already looks so much better. I am amazed at the difference in such a short time.

Six months ago my lawn looked awful, full of moss and weeds with pale starved grass. I thought it was beyond repair. A friend suggested I contact Robert at then Countrywide LawnDoctor (Now Top Lawn) - I am so glad I did.

I am delighted with the Top Lawn service. They are a pleasure to deal with. I have happily recommended them to friends and neighbours."

"When first described to me by Robert Martin of Top Lawn, their Green Keeper programme seemed to be an expensive and over-egged option.  Motivated by the promise I would not regret it if I signed up, I decided to give it a try.  Now several months into the experiment I see why I made the right decision.  Basically without any input from me, save for signing the standing order, the lawn has moved from disaster to wonder.  From a weed infested mess to an area of lush green healthy lawn all in a matter of months it is truly an all-in care programme that seems to be working to perfection.  I commend Robert and his expanding team and I endorse his Green Keeper programme."

Mrs M W

"I have known Robert and his Lawn Treatment business since he started nearly 10 years ago when it was Countrywide LawnDoctor. His professional approach to us and his enthusiastic care of our lawn by himself and his staff have always impressed.

The lawn is in good condition through very wet and very dry times, and much admired by all.“

B B, Eastbourne

"Back in March I called Top Lawn to advise us on our ‘lawns’, an unattractive combination of moss, weeds, various grasses, or no grass at all. The ground was compacted, the soil impoverished, and really I held out little hope that any treatment was worth the effort or expense since the entire area seemed beyond redemption! How wrong could I be. Aeration and various treatments started in April, and in just six months almost the whole area has been vastly improved - we have grass where there was no grass, weeds have been dispatched, and areas that have never seen grass are now greening up. There is more to do - some very difficult dry, shaded areas need further attention, but from results already achieved, I’m confident by the end of next year we’ll have a lawn to be proud of, thanks to the expertise of Robert Martin and his dedicated team.
