GB Landscapes Ltd- lawn aeration services in Maidstone areas.
Unlike other companies who only offer hollow tine aeration and leave the cores in an unsightly mess on the surface of your lawn, we provide various types of aeration to suit the needs of your lawn.
All aeration will allow nutrients, water and air to circulate the rootzone of your grass, thickening the sward and promoting the long-term health of the turf. Hollow tine aeration and slitting will cut out lateral root growth of the grass plant, stimulating new shoots to thicken the grass.
Hollow tine aeration is the most effective way of de-compacting the lawn surface in heavy clay soils and removing sub-surface thatch. Our machine removes thousands of cores of soil from your lawn, also improving surface drainage. We normally scarify the lawn after hollow tine aeration to remove the cores and surface thatch.
This process usually only needs performing every 2-3 years on most lawns, although those lawns heavily played on may benefit from more regular treatment.
Solid tine aeration works more for aeration than de-compaction, with solid tines being punched into the lawn to approx. 75mm at regular intervals. Slitting aerates the surface and is usually used to help form a seed bed when over-seeding lawns. Both types are recommended to be undertaken on an annual basis.
As part of us monitoring the progress and health of your lawn on a regular basis with our seasonal treatment programme, we will be able to recommend when aeration should be carried out.
