The problem: The combination of moss, thatch and weeds had inevitably left this lawn needing a whole renovation. The grass had grown weaker due to the effects of compaction and moss and weeds were thriving on the weakness of the lawn. When moss gets its claws in its extremely hard to turn the situation around without drastic action (renovation.)
The solution: Scarification, Hollow Tine Aeration, Top Dressing and Over Seeding.
The process: Scarification would rake all of the moss and thatch out of the lawn to let grass grow healthily once again while aeration would pull plugs of thatch/soil out of the soil allowing moisture to travel further in to the soil and encourage deeper and stronger grass roots (giving the grass a fighting start.) Top dressing and over seeding the lawn gives a boost to the recovery by adding a quality soil/loam mix to encourage new seeds growth and by laying extra grass seed your grass will grow thicker lowering the risk of bald patches. The lawn’s recovery time will depend upon the weather conditions but its worth the wait! Your new lawn will start to grow after 2 weeks and you should have your lawn fully recovered in around 8-12 weeks.
The result: The lawn is back to optimum health; moss, thatch and weed free with compaction alleviated too. We continue to care for this lawn with seasonal treatments which will help to keep these problems at bay!
