Many problems with lawns often relate to the condition of the soil beneath them. One of the first things we do when taking over your lawn care is to properly interrogate the condition of the soil beneath it.
The soil beneath all lawns require as much, if not more, care and attention as the lawn itself. Soil contains a complex balance of fungi, flora, fauna and bacteria which help break down organic matter.
This process turns these materials into forms that can be taken up by plants and grasses as food. These processes are often aerobic meaning that they need a regular supply of air which needs to be able to penetrate the soil from above. If the grass is under regular footfall or machinery the soil beneath can become compacted. This can prevent both water and air from entering the soil.
When soil becomes compacted the natural processes are disrupted, roots struggle to penetrate and surface plants and grasses can struggle to grow or will often grow unevenly as a result.
The problem can often be fixed by aerating the soil.
We know when lawn aeration should be done and when it shouldn’t. If conditions are too wet, the lawn will be further compacted, and thus more damage will be caused. Aeration of lawns can be done at any time of year so long as conditions are right. But different soils respond to different machinery applications differently. We can assist in helping you understand what will improve your soil and when the best time to carry out the work would be.
We use a wide variety of aeration equipment to match with different conditions and soil types. It is necessary to lift and create cracks within the soil without causing any visual surface damage or disturbance, which is why soil conditions have to be right before we start.
