Two vital services for a healthy and beautiful lawn are Scarification and Aeration. Both help to remove natural build ups on the lawn such as thatch and compaction, by removing such lawn problems your lawn will thrive.
For a truly beautiful lawn, we would recommend having both a scarification and aeration.
Scarification, also known as "dethatching", remove the main cause for moss on your lawn - "Thatch". Some gardeners use lawn rakes to pull out moss, but this does not deal with the real issue. Moss grows on thatch when the right conditions exist (Warm but damp weather, like our winters). To stop the moss growing it is best to remove as much thatch as possible. We use industrial scarification machines which substantially removes the majority of thatch from your lawn, making conditions far more difficult for moss to grow.
Aeration is the process of punching 1000's of holes into the lawn, our hollow-tine aeration machine actually removes cores of soil out of the lawn. The purpose of this is to substantially reduce "sub thatch" which scarification alone cannot do. Aeration is beneficial because one the cores have been taken out of the lawn it allows vital elements like water to more easily penetrate the soil beneath the surface of the lawn, also fertiliser and air have greater effect once a lawn has been aerated.
