Top dressing the lawn
Frequently carried out in the late summer and early autumn as
part of the autumn renovation program top dressing is an essential lawn care task. Top
dressing trues up the lawn, encourages finer grasses, can improve drainage or drought
resistance and improves the soil structure.
We have information on which materials to use, how to mix and when to apply to the lawn.
Aerating & spiking the lawn
Another important task that is essential for a healthy vigorous
lawn. Lawn aeration can come in many forms from spiking to hollow tining. A wide range of
tools are available from a simple hand fork to a purpose built lawn aerator.
Our aeration page includes lots of information on this task. Includes the effects of the
different types of tine used, when to aerate and the benefits of spiking and aeration. MORE INFO
Scarifying & dethatching the lawn
Lawn scarification can be carried out in both spring & autumn
to remove and prevent the build up of thatch and moss in the lawn. A range of equipment can be
used for this task from a spring bok rake to a motorised lawn scarifier or lawn rake.
This operation has many benefits on the health of the lawn which can be found on out
scarification page. MORE INFO
Lawn fertiliser & feeding the lawn
All lawns require vital nutrients to remain healthy, if the
soil is deficient in nutrients then the health of the lawn can suffer. We discuss the role of
the key nutrients found in fertiliser. Lawn fertiliser falls into two categories,
spring/summer and autumn/winter fertiliser.
Visit our lawn fertiliser page for more info on what and when to apply and also what application
methods are available. MORE INFO
Spring lawn care
This is when the hard work on the lawn starts for the coming
year. As the ground warms up and the grass starts to grow we can start our spring lawn care
program. Jobs during this period can include moss control and removal, spring & summer
fertiliser application and weed control.
We have information to help you get the best out of your spring lawn care program ensuring your
lawn looks it's best for summer. MORE INFO
Autumn lawn care
Just as the spring program prepares the lawn for the summer,
the autumn program prepares it to withstand the harsh winter conditions. This helps the lawn
enter the forthcoming spring in a healthier state. Autumn jobs include top dressing,
scarifying and applying a suitable feed.
Check out our autumn lawn care page for an in depth look at all the tasks undertaken during this
