Lawn care is more than just mowing on a regular basis. Your lawn needs some basic rejuvenating treatments. Lawn renovation can include several steps that can be done this spring.

Some triggers can be excessive watering, wrongfully applied fertilizer and extreme foot traffic. You will be surprised at how much thatch is removed during the detaching session.

Aeration is another procedure you can do to your lawn twice a year, if not at least once a year in the spring to open pores so that any nutrients you add to your lawn can actually penetrate deeply. You will notice the plugs on the lawn for a few weeks as they will slowly disintegrate and serve as a natural fertilizer.

Once the dethatching and aeration has been done over seeding and fertiliser applications can be major boosters to a lush lawn in only a few weeks.

Seeds can sprout in 4-6 weeks and improvement’s in the lawn’s appearance and color will develop when the right fertilizer is applied to a lawn. Weed control should be avoided during this time to allow the seed to sprout.
