Many people ask us if it is worth going the extra mile and expense to carry out a full lawn renovation. We certainly believe it is well worth the extra commitment. The best time to do this is between mid August and Early October.
Scarifying a lawn can seem rather harsh, but the results can be extremely rewarding as well as making the lawn much easier to maintain in the future.
Here is an example of a clients lawn that had become very thatchy and needed our renovation combo of Scarification, aeration and over-seeding. We are pleased to say that when our technician photographed it this week (5th April 2018) it has recovered very well and is looking young and vibrant.
Another happy customer!
