By now most of our customers will have had the moss treatment sprayed on the lawns. We are sorry if we missed a few bits here and there, but we are going round making sure we spray any bits we missed. It is nearly time to scarify…. The act of scarifying will remove as much of the dead moss and thatch from the lawns as we can, but it will also open the very top layer of soil. This is important as it will break up any surface roots, promoting strong healthy growth of the grass that is already on the lawn. It will also make a tilth for the new seed that we will introduce to sit in. Good soil to seed contact is vital and as the weather reaches a good germination temperature, we want to get the new seed to germinate quickly and for the existing grass to recover before the mowing season really kicks in. Summer will be upon us soon and we want the lawns to have as much recovery time as we can.
Sharpen your mower blades and get ready for the mowing 😉
