Sometimes no matter how much lawn fertiliser you use, how perfectly you mow and how much water you give it, your lawn just doesn’t look as full and green as you would like it to. And sometimes, you just can’t beat the weeds, dry patches or moss. You may be in need of a lawn renovation.

Problems such as thatch, disease, compaction, unwanted lawn pests or moss could be inhibiting growth or preventing the effective absorption of essential nutrients and water, which is why we are here to help. We will try find and combat the source of the issue causing your lawn stress, and sometimes this means starting from the beginning.

We recommend that a lawn renovation is carried out during the spring or autumn. This is because weather conditions and temperatures are less extreme during these seasons and the grass is still active within the growth cycle.

How it works

Every lawn renovation, whether of a small area or a complete lawn, will begin with a thorough Scarification in order to remove any thatch, weeds, moss and as much organic matter as possible. Then, in most lawn renovations we will follow with a Hollow Tine Aeration, especially helpful if compaction of the soil is a problem. Aeration will remove plugs of earth to revive the soil ecosystem; freeing up space for roots to develop, air to flow and water to be absorbed. After we have aerated the soil, we will Overseed, which introduces new grasses to the lawn and overcrowds any weeds and moss that may be left.

What to expect

After a lawn renovation you can expect your lawn or the renovated sections to look quite bare and thinned out. Then, the new seeds will germinate and give you a full, healthier, weed-free lawn.

How to prepare

For best results before a lawn renovation we recommend that you mow the lawn to about 1 – 2 inches high and remove as much debris as possible.

After the renovation, your lawn will need to be watered regularly, keeping the soil moist is best for successful germination after overseeding.

POPULAR QUESTIONS

We generally go by the rule of thumb that if your lawn is less than 30% grass then it would be worth a complete renovation. If there are more weeds and moss than grass these plants are likely to win against any overseeding attempt and so starting from scratch to eradicate weeds and moss is advised.

Ideally renovations are carried out during the best growth seasons of the year. So during spring and autumn is best because there is adequate sun, rain and less extreme temperatures. Extremes of weather during winter and summer are not a good time for any active treatments or the introduction of new seed.

Over the next couple of months ensure that the soil is kept damp down to depth of approximately 6cm as this will help the new seeds that have been introduced to the soil germinate and establish a strong and deep root base. Do not over water and leave puddles on the new lawn and this can encourage disease. During dry spells check the lawn more often and pay attention to shady patches as they will require less watering.
