Now is a Good Time to Aerate and Scarify your Lawn!

Aerating your lawn has many benefits:

  • Improves air exchange between the soil and atmosphere
  • Improves fertiliser uptake and use
  • Reduces water run off and puddling
  • Promotes deeper healthier root growth
  • Reduces soil compaction
  • Enhances heat and drought stress tolerance
  • Introduces air in to thatch layer and rootzone enhancing thatch breakdown

Our Groundsman 345HD is a commercial machine with vertical action penetrating down to a depth of 5” and it’s only 32” wide allowing it to pass through a standard gateway.

Our Graden GS04 Scarifier removes significantly more thatch & fibre than conventional scarification, at the same time creating far less surface disruption.

If you're looking for surface aeration and thatch removal, It’s so much more efficient using the Graden, recovery time is quicker, plus it creates an ideal environment for overseeding.

When done in conjunction with topdressing the process creates sand channels at 25mm centres, up to 45mm deep, across the entire surface that not only improve surface drainage and air/water permability but also aggressively manage the control of thatch

Many of our Cricket and Bowling Club customers are seeing the benefits of regular Aeration

We also carry out commercially and domestically:

  • Hollow Tining
  • Micro/Needle Tining
  • Slit Tining
  • Verticutting
  • Linear Aeration/ Deep Scarification
  • Top Dressing
  • Moss Control
  • Fertiliser Application
  • Fungicide Application
  • Worm Control
  • Weed Control

Everyone’s lawn is different, we are not a franchise nor do we work to a fixed menu, we tailor a programme of work specific to your own circumstances

We have been looking after some of the most prestigious Cricket and Bowls Clubs since 1986

Call us today and allow us to improve the health of your Lawn!
