Core Aerating


Core Aeration is the process of taking small plugs from the lawn, which is the best way of easing compaction and sub-surface thatch, allowing air, water and fertilizer penetration to the root zone. This is particularly effective at the beginning and end of the growing season.

Aeration can also help the lawn through drought stress conditions; enabling water retention in the crucial root zone.

Why does a lawn need aerating?

Over time most soils will become compacted, squashing the particles together and reducing the grasses ability to grow well. This compaction will itself cause a number of problems, it will increase the likely hood of the lawn becoming flooded or water logged. Compacted soils are much more likely to become invested with either weeds such as daisy´s or moss. The roots are unable to access the nutrients they require so the grass tends to be thin weak and pale in compacted soils.


How often does my lawn need aerating?
A lawn cannot be over aerated as long as it is not damaged, the more often the better. As a rule we tend to suggest that it is carried out every year but as all soil types / lawns and situations are different it is really something that needs to be discussed individually with your Lawn Manager.

De-Thatching 


This will thin out and remove the thatch and moss invasion that has built up. This is particularly effective following our Spring or Autumn treatments. De-thatching is a process perhaps best described as a mechanical raking of the lawn; its primary purpose is to remove thatch from the lawn although it has associated benefits as well. The machine used has a series of sharp tungsten blades that rotate at high speed and cut into the turf in a vertical manor. The depth can be adjusted to remove as much or as little as required. This machine and process should not be confused with the typical tool available on the domestic market, which is more of a rake.


Why does my lawn need de-thatching?

A lawn that has developed a large amount of thatch or moss needs to be treated to remove as much of this material as possible, allowing the grass space to grow. This process should be carried out at a time when the grass is growing actively to allow it to recover from this rigorous process, usually autumn through to spring time. It is advisable; although not essential to carry out before a fertilizer treatment as this will greatly speed the rate of recovery from the process. This process is commonly used in conjunction with over-seeding.

All lawns are different in their characteristics and it is therefore very difficult to predict how often to De-thatch a lawn. There are a number of factors that will affect the frequency required. If a lawn contains large amounts of thatch  it may need a number of treatments to reduce the level to be manageable. Different grass types tend to produce more thatch than others along with mowing height and frequency and therefore need servicing more frequently. As a general rule We advise that a lawn should be de-thatched between every 1 and 2 years but for specific advice please discuss with your lawn manager who will be able to look at your individual circumstances.

Overseeding


Over seeding is one of the quickest and most effective ways to rejuvenate your lawn. Over seeding is the application of grass seed to your existing lawn which replenishes the old grass.

Over seeding will improve the quality of your lawn increasing shade and drought tolerance whilst also improving your lawns resistance to diseases.


One of the main reasons to over seed is to repair the damaged areas of lawn and to make it look thick and healthy; this will also encourage a harder wearing grass which will withstand added traffic.  Another important point is that over seeding will encourage finer grass giving you a more luxurious bents and fescues lawn. Overseeding your lawn can help to fill in damaged or thin areas, reduce the invasion of weeds and moss and also improve the colour and appearance of the lawn.

For the best results over seeding needs to be done in early spring, later summer or early autumn and preferably after de-thatching, rolling and aeration as the warm weather and well ventilated soil encourages better seed germination.  Another point to remember when over seeding is there must be growing time left before winter to give the seeds the best chance of surviving the cold weather.

Fertilizer Application


The million dollar question for many people is "when to fertilize?" To answer this question, you should consider these four factors: climate, grass type, the fertilizer being used, and how you want your lawn to look. For those of us who want our lawn looking its best, then it's a good idea to fertilize your lawn 3-5 times a year. Conversely, even if you don't want a good looking lawn, you should at least fertilize twice a year for your grass's sake.  As a rule of thumb, it is best to apply fertilizers when your lawn in early spring and once it is actively growing. If you fertilize with nitrogen while your lawn is dormant, you can encourage weed growth, and ultimately waste fertilizer.

Cool season grasses tend to have two flourishing (or growing) periods. The first is after the lawn's return from winter dormancy. (Spring) The second is during the early fall, when temperatures moderate and droughts and heat waves typically are gone (after August). For Cool-Season lawns in the north, it is usually best to concentrate a larger amount of nitrogen to be applied during the early spring and late fall growing period and a lesser amount in the heat of summer (unless irrigated).

Turf Care has one of the most value packed seasonal fertilizer application packages on the market.
