Seeding and Aeration by Lenards Lawn Care

Looking for a beautiful lawn to be the envy of your neighborhood? Look no further! Fully licensed and insured, Lenard’s Lawn Care provide professional and expert lawn care services including seeding and aeration.

Seeding services:

Seeding is a most cost effective option than turfing if you are looking for a thick, healthy lawn without it costing the earth. There are a large variety of seed mixtures available, so which one is most suitable depends on the soil and conditions; we can help to advise on the best possible seed mixture to create your perfect lawn.

Aeration services:

The aeration of your lawn is an essential requirement to help nutrients to reach your soil and allows air and water to penetrate beneath the surface of the grass to nurture a healthy and thriving lawn.

Variables considered in professional seeding:

Lawns with heavier traffic require hard-wearing grasses suitable for areas which are prone to wear and tear. Hardier grasses tend to require more regular mowing but will be able to cope with more frequent use.

Luxury lawn grasses tend to be slenderer and give a finer appearance. They aren’t able to withstand as much traffic, so are not suited to lawns which are walked on regularly. Finer grasses do tend to grow a little slower, so require less regular mowing.

Lawns in shady areas also require consideration when seeding; these types of lawns require grasses able to thrive with less hours of sunlight, which can grow healthily in medium shade.

Seeding preparation:

In order to prepare your lawn for seeding by Lenard’s Lawn Care, we will prepare the seed beds in advance to make sure any weeds have been removed, and any weed killer will not permeate the soil and damage the grass seeds.

The soil will then be cultivated or renovated to prepare it for seeding, and particularly for sandier consistency soils, a fertilizer may be required to moisten the soil to create the best environment for seeding.

Once prepared, the soil will be left to settle, and then be raked prior to seeding. Once these steps have been completed, your lawn will be ready for seeding. Seeds are laid in a pattern or concentration per square meter depending on the type of grass best suited to your lawn, and the seed mixture we have selected.

Reasons to aerate your lawn:

Heavier use lawns, with higher traffic, really should be aerated as lawns which are regularly walked and played upon have the soil gradually compacted underfoot. This means that air, water and nutrients struggle to reach the plant roots, which can cause a tired and ailing lawn to appear.

After long dry spells, lawns can quickly dry out and become rough and patchy. Aerating your lawn helps water reach down beneath the top layer of soil to break up and hydrate compacted and older soil which results in poor root development and unhealthy grass.
