Large Lawn Creation
Lawn Creation in Little Berkhamstead (near Essendon), Hertfordshire
Perfect Ground Solutions Ltd are very experienced in establishing lawns to create the ideal outdoor space and backdrop for your home, often working alongside landscapers or garden designers to achieve your desired result.
For larger lawns, where access is available, it is often much more efficient to use tractor-mounted equipment for shallow cultivation, preparation and consolidation of the seedbed and the seeding steps. The picture below shows primary cultivations and stone burying taking place where the existing lawn had been sprayed off to kill the existing grass.
We also look to make sure that the soil microflora is in good health, which is a key part of rapid and sustainable development. Where required, we will look to add additional bio stimulants and in some cases add additional microflora to improve soil health rapidly.
The picture below shows the final seedbed preparation, consolidation and seeding underway. Unless irrigation is available, the best time for seeding a lawn is from late August which matches with natural grass growth cycle and usually provides ideal conditions for soil preparation without damage. Where the soil is warm and moist we will see a green cover within 14 days and the lawn will thicken through the autumn so that the lawn is well established and in good condition by the following spring. In some well-drained soils it may also be possible to establish a lawn in the early spring.
Perfect Ground Solutions Ltd offers year-round advice and services aimed at making sure your lawn is kept in the best possible health. Firstly, by assessing the health of your soil and where required making adjustments to the soil acidity, which will help improve nutrient uptake and improve the soil microflora.
We will also provide a programme for ongoing nutrition which will vary from season to season to take into account the seasonal weather and the lawn response.
Different soil types require different nutritional programs, so we make sure that the programme used on your lawn is suitable for your soil type whilst also taking into account the weather at the time. This means that we will change programmes in hot dry spells or in seasons with above average rainfall.
