Aeration aids root development, air percolation, root pruning and drainage. Aeration is the process of making holes in the lawns surface. The action of aerating will let the stale Carbon Dioxide air out of the soil and the fresh Oxygen rich air into the soil. The action of aerating will also stimulate and encourage root growth. The majority of UK lawns require regular and deep solid tine aeration, not hollow tining that so many lawn care companies adopt as the norm.Read more

An application of a slow phased release granular fertiliser with a nutrient analysis appropriate to the time of the year. The nutrients in the fertiliser will be released over a period of 8 – 12 weeks, thus providing a steady supply of food to the turf grasses to get them out of the winter doldrums and to keep them fit and healthy without the production of excessive vegetative growth. You can fertilise your lawn as soon as you commence mowing it and also straight after you have mowed but do not mow three – five days after applying fertiliser otherwise it may end up in the mower collector box. Alway fertilise your lawn ahead of applying a selective weed killer. You can use a Spring and Summer fertiliser product at half rate as an Autumn and Winter fertiliser, as the technology of such products is so good, the nutrients will stop releasing when the weather turns colder and start again when it warms up.Read more
