Lawn Care Annual Maintenance

In addition to routine tasks such as watering and grass cutting regular lawn care is required to reduce the risks of pests or diseases and to keep the lawn looking healthy. A lawn care program should involve aeration (scarifying and thatch removal), fertilising and control of moss, weeds, pests and diseases. We offer turfing, mowing, weed treatment, scarify & fertiliser for your lawn care services. Generally we will visit a few times to for your lawn treatment.

Aerating the turf.
There are several ways of aerating the soil and removing thatch. Scarifying, slitting and spiking are the main methods of aerating the turf. It is important not to perform these tasks in dry periods as they make the lawn more vulnerable to drought in the short term.

Scarifying
Scarifying the lawn is a technique to remove thatch and permits air to enter the surface of the lawn.

Slitting
Slitting the lawn with a machine is a technique where the blades cut slits through the thatch which permits air to penetrate the soil.

Spiking
Spiking the lawn allows air to enter the soil encouraging rout growth

Moss Control
The reasons for moss in the lawn are varied but include soil compaction, poor drainage, mowing the lawn too closely. Treat the area with a moss killer then scarify to remove the moss.

Turf Laying
We are experts at turf laying and have contacts to supply turf for typical and specialist purposes. For example, if you have a shady area of lawn we can source lawn turf for shady areas.
