ALL IN ONE

SCARIFYING AND AERATING 

                              

 WE ARE OFTEN ASKED BY CUSTOMERS WHAT ARE THE BEST THINGS THEY CAN DO TO MAKE THERE LAWN THE ENVY OF THERE NEIGHBOURS APART FROM THE OBVIOUS

REGULAR MOWING,FEEDING AND WATERING 

THE TWO MOST INPORTENT THINGS THAT MOST PEOPLE DONT FEEL THE NEED TO DO  IS SCARIFYING AND AERATING BUT THEY SHOULD BE RIGHT AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST

WHAT IS SCARIFYING

IT'S BEST DESCRIBED AS A MECHANICAL RAKING OF THE LAWN IT'S MAIN PURPOSE IS TO REMOVE THATCH AND MOSS FROM THE LAWN WHICH IN TURN ALLOWS WATER AND AIR TO GET IN TO THE ROOTS OF THE GRASS


 




WHAT IS AERATING

THE TOP LAYER OF SOIL BECOMES COMPACT AND HARD DUE TO PEOPLE WALKING ON IT AND THE ELEMENTS

AERTING IS CUTTING IN TO THE SOIL AT THE TOP JUST ENOUGH TO ALLOW AIR AND MOISTURE TO GET DEEPER IN TO THE ROOTS WITHOUT DAMAGING THE GRASS


WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SCARIFYING AND AERTING

WELL THAT DEPENDS  ON YOU

SOME GARDEN ONLY NEED SCARIFYING AND AERTING

OTHERS MAY NEED RESEEDING AND A FERTILISER APPLIED IF THE LAWN IS NOT THAT BAD

OR IF IT NEEDS A BIT MORE CARE THEN RESEEDING AND A TOP DRESSING APPLIED .
