How we can help bring your Spring lawn back to life

Scarification

Scarification assists in the removal of the dead grass leaves that will turn into thatch.

The older turf grass leaves will naturally fall off the turf grass plant with new ones emerging and these old leaves will drop down into the turf sward and build up as leaf litter debris if not collected by the suction action of the mowing process.

The scarifying process should be performed in the Autumn and Spring periods and as part of a complete renovation programme and in the normal lawn growing season, not outside it. For routine scarifying, little and often in different directions is the best method to adopt for a domestic lawn.

Most Scarifying machines have solid / rigid metal blades and these can be quite rough on the lawn’s surface if not used correctly and at the incorrect time of the year.  There are also wire comb reels that are great for a light clean up following the winter on better quality lawns and croquet lawns and tennis courts for example.

It’s always best to mow the lawn in multi directions ahead of scarifying as this will reduce the vegetative volume of grass and make it much easier for the Scarifer to do it’s best on the day.

Clear the Scarifier debris with a rake or blower, working in the direction the machine last travelled and then mow the lawn afterwards to tidy it up and collect any debris that was missed during the clear up operation.

Aerate after Scarifying.  The lawn should be fertilised and then over-sown with grass seed following ahead of any top dressing to restore the micro levels.

Fairy Rings

Fairy Rings are not easy to control, especially as there are three main types, which vary in their visual appearance and effect on the turf.

Do not consider digging them out!! Apply a Wetting Agent to the area at frequent intervals and make the soil conditions unfavorable for the Fungi to survive.

Improving your turf culture practices may prevent an outbreak, to include: light surface aeration, applying a Wetting Agent, remove the fruiting bodies (mushrooms) rather than squashing them, applying fertiliser if you only have Type 2.

See the Technical Leaflet in the Download section of this site to discover more about Fairy Rings.

Rust Disease

Rust Disease looks exactly as it sounds. Initial symptoms show as yellow flecks on the leaves and plant stems.  These flecks enlarge and the fungal spores develop on the leaf surface.

During cool weather in summer and autumn.  Initial symptoms show as yellow flecks on the leaves and plant stems.

Mostly seen when the night time temperatures reduce late September.

It can spread to affect a large area, especially unmown lawns.

Adopting a regular fertiliser programme will assist in the prevention of an outbreak of this disease as will a regular mowing regime. Pass an infected leaf through your fingers – you will get a rusty deposit!

See the Technical Leaflet in the Download section of this site to discover more about Rust Disease.

Red Thread Disease

Red Thread Disease is seen on lawns during the Late Summer to Autumn during still, warm and moist conditions making a poor visual.

You will notice pink needles that protrude from the leaf of the grass plants and also a pinkish mycelium on the surface of affected areas. It indicates low Nitrogen levels in the soil, thus an application of a lawn fertiliser will initially control it.

Improving your turf culture practices may prevent an outbreak, to include: Reduce Thatch, Apply Fertiliser at regular intervals, Grass Seed Cultivar selection and Dew removal.
