Does your lawn look past its best? Our Lawn Restarter is far cheaper than re-turfing, making it ideal for both small and large lawns.
Using our professional aerating machines, we make thousands of small holes in the surface of your lawn.
Aerating opens up and de-compacts the soil in your lawn, enabling water, air and vital nutrients to reach the roots of your grass.
Renovation scarification will strip out dead moss and thatch, and create the ideal seed bed your new grass. Clearing this debris opens up the lawn surface, allowing water, air and nutrients to reach and nourish the soil.
We use top quality rye and fescue cultivar grass seed, ideal for hard wearing, great looking lawns. We can tailor make a seed mix to suit the requirements of your lawn.
With our recent hot, dry Summers, we apply a specialist wetting agent as standard with our Lawn Improver Visit.
This granular product can be effective for up to 3 months.
Working to increase moisture retention in the soil profile and availability of water to the grass roots, this treatment is ideal for lawns prone to dry patch.
In dry conditions the soil can develop a fungus that actually repels water and makes the soil hydrophobic, this treatment helps to combat this issue.
It reduces the amount of watering required as it makes the best use of any available water, which is great for you, the environment and your lawns.
This mix of essential minerals, gypsum, humic acid and organic materials is applied as standard with our Autumn lawn treatment, and an additional application is added with our lawn enhancer treatment.
Lawns with poorer soil profiles will benefit from an addition Winter or Spring application of our soil improver, especially in addition to an aeration.
The benefits of this treatment are:
Buffers soil PH.
Deflocculates heavy clay soils for increased drainage and nutrient uptake.
Aids root development.
Stimulates microbial activity for a healthy soil and healthy lawn.
Looking after your newly renovated lawn:
It is vitally important that your newly renovated lawn is watered regularly until established. The seed will take around 14 days to germinate, depending on temperature, and once germinated the seedlings will die if they dry out.
We normally only undertake lawn renovation visits during September and October, as the soil is still warm, and less likely to quickly dry out than in the Summer.
Your lawn will recover and grow ready to be enjoyed the following Spring.
It is important to keep off the lawn as much as possible for the first 4-6 weeks, as the seedlings are delicate and easily damaged by trampling.
Mowing can be undertaken once the lawn is thick and established. You should just take the very top of the grass off during the first mow, then gradually reduce cutting heights with each mow. The key is to not remove more than 1/3rd of the grass blade height in any one mow.
The eventual height of the grass should be 25-30m, depending on grass species and season.
