Aerating & Scarifying – What to expect…

 

We have created this newsletter to explain why your lawns need to be Aerated and scarified  and what to expect…

 

Why do lawns need Aerating and Scarifying?

The secret behind a perfect lawn lies in the soil. If you have good soil conditions then you will get good root growth, which leads to healthy grass.

 

About Aerating:

Roots need air to breath and air space to grow into. Without these air spaces water can’t drain away so the roots drown, resulting in thin stunted roots and a poor looking lawn.

Aeration is the process where the lawn is opened up to allow air, nutrients and water to penetrate the roots, which results in a stronger and deeper growth.

 

About Scarifying:

Our lawns collect lots of dead matter such as dead grass and moss throughout the year. Having your lawn scarified at least once a year during either Spring or Autumn will help get rid of most of the dead matter and moss in your lawn. This will allow air and moisture to get down to the roots, helping revitalise your lawn.

 

Recovery of Your Lawn:

After Scarifying your lawn it can look quite unsightly, however please be assured this is only temporary!

For the best results we need to get out as much dead matter and moss as we can, then your lawn is given the best chance to grow back even healthier and stronger than before. After scarifying, soil can sometimes be left exposed, this is the perfect time to over seed your lawn. Depending on the weather your lawn may recover in roughly 4-6 weeks, but sometimes it can take longer.

 

Photos of what to expect…

Below are two photos of a customers lawn that I aerated and scarified in September.

Photo 1: The lawn after it had been aerated and scarified, as you can see it is looking rather patchy and unsightly. – Please be assured this is temporary!

 

Photo 2: Roughly 6 weeks after Scarifying and Aerating with a Feed and Weed application on too. The lawn has nearly all grown back and is looking very healthy indeed!

 

Aerating and scarifying lawns is essential to creating a beautiful healthy lawn.

 

Having completed most of the aerating and scarifying jobs for this year, I’m looking forward to returning to my customers with their next treatment in November and seeing the results!

 

Best wishes,

James and Lauren Cubitt

September Lawn Care Review

A Warm Welcome:

September has been our first month at Lawnkeeper Airedale. We have had such a warm welcome from our lovely existing customers and new ones too! We have had great support from our fellow Lawnkeeper franchisees, who are all over the UK but have taken the time to make sure Lauren and I feel extremely welcome and part of the Lawnkeeper family.  – We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone!

 

September Review:

During September we have seen the temperatures drop and the rainfall increase slightly – Thank goodness! I think we will all agree that our lawns have needed this rainfall for quite some time, hopefully your lawns are looking revived and fresh once more.

We have been working hard getting through all of the Aerating and Scarifying jobs this month to make sure the grass roots and soil are getting the nutrients and hydration it needs after this exceptionally dry summer. After we have done this treatment we aim to call back around 1-2 weeks later to apply the feed and weed application which will absorb nicely into your freshly aerated and scarified lawns.

 

Weed & Feed Lawn Care Tip:

For best results keep off your lawn for a minimum of 1 hour and do not cut your lawn for 3 days after the feed and weed treatment has been applied.

 

Questions & Answers:

Q: What if it rains after the Feed & Weed treatment?

A: Rain is not a problem, it is actually really good for the fertiliser in the feed treatment! So, do not worry if it is raining when we are applying it or if it rains afterwards, it helps to break the fertiliser down.

Q: I have children and pets, is the application safe for them to play on the lawn after treatments?

A: We advise keeping off the lawns for at least 1 hour after Feed & Weed treatments, after this period it is safe for your children and pets to play on.

We have enjoyed meeting new and existing customers this month, if we haven’t visited you yet, we look forwards to meeting you soon!

 

Best Wishes,

James and Lauren

Looking after your lawn in dry weather

The prolonged hot weather this summer has made a lot of lawns look less than their best! Apart from watering, you may think that there aren’t many other things you can do to protect your lawn.
