Annual Lawn Care Treatments

We believe that lawn care all year round is vital for green, healthy lawns. As part of our lawn care programmes we visit your lawn 5 times a year to treat with fertiliser and kill weeds and moss, as well as to identify and deal with any disease or pest problems. But sometimes your lawn needs a little extra help to clear thatch and moss or offer relief from compaction. This is where our recommended Annual Lawn Care Treatments come in.

Annual Lawn Care Treatments are not necessarily needed every year, but it is advisable for the optimum health of your lawn, but when our Lawn Care Specialist visits to carry out a Free Lawn Analysis they will know more about which treatments could benefit your lawn and how often you may need them.

The two main Annual Treatments that we recommend are Hollow Tine Aeration and Scarification, both are mechanical treatments and work to help assist the long-term health of the lawn. It is best to carry these treatments out during spring and autumn because growth is at its best due to more balanced weather conditions.  

Hollow Tine Aeration deals with compaction which can be the cause of many lawn issues due to a lack of air, water and nutrients reaching the grass’ roots.

Aeration works by removing approximately 5% of the surface soil by removing 2” deep and ½” wide plugs which then allows the soil to breathe and absorb more nutrients and water into the roots therefore helping to restore the soil ecosystem.

Scarification Moss and Thatch Removal
Scarification is another important mechanical Annual Treatment and is the perfect boost for a lawn. It deals with another common lawn problem, thatch which is a layer of organic matter that has built up over time, such as leaves, grass clippings, weeds and moss.

When the thatch gets too thick we need to scarify because it begins to obstruct the lawn’s roots from receiving essential nutrients and water, and it blocks out the light, which in turn causes many problems for your lawn.

A non-mechanical Annual Lawn Care Treatment we also recommend, especially after Scarification, is Overseeding. This is because all lawns have a natural life cycle and regular mowing, as essential as it is, does prevent the grass going to seed, so to keep your lawn living and growing we recommend introducing new seed and grass every year or so, so your lawn can flourish.

During your Free Lawn Analysis, our Lawn Care Specialist will recommend specific Annual Treatments that could help your lawn, but as always, this is just a recommendation and we will always do as much or as little as you would like.

Annual Treatments


This is a vital ‘spring clean’ for the lawn and an essential annual treatment to remove unwanted organic matter such as dead grass, moss and weeds, to revive the shoots and thicken up the grass.


An essential Annual Treatment we recommend is the Hollow Tine Aeration; a process which relieves compaction, allows essential air exchange and improves soil hydration.


Grass, just like all plants, has a natural life cycle and will in time die off. Mowing the lawn prevents the grass from going to seed and so this is where overseeding is important.


Refer a friend to So Green and you will both receive a free treatment worth up to £40.
