Our Lawn Rescue is the ultimate of lawn renovations. The programme of work was mastered following the 2018 drought as a method of reviving lawns where the only other option would be to dig up and re-turf. Lawns which have lost much of their grass cover due to drought, pet or grub damage, waterlogging, or excessive use are prime candidates for this style of renovation.
This process is made up of 'whatever it takes' aeration and scarification back to soil. Only the strongest grasses survive, or if required we can apply a herbicide for a 'start from zero' application of seed mix.
We overseed heavily, apply our Water Conserver and top-dress with a finely screened organic material ideal for our lawns and the best possible germination. This is a one-off call in addition to our Lawn Care Treatment Programme for a complete restoration.
Our Lawn Rescue means:
- A lawn grown in from scratch with the most suitable seed mix for your needs
- A sports-ground standard 'end of season renovation' brought into your garden
- Around half of the cost of having your lawn re-turfed with a better long term result when in conjunction with our Lawn Treatment Programme
As ex grounds professionals / greenkeepers we guarantee our Autumn renovation work for complete peace of mind for your investment. Even though this is a labour intensive last resort for us we take great pride in the lawns that we rescue!
Our Lawn Rescue service is a full lawn restoration - and this means aggressive scarification and aeration.
We utilise sports-ground standard machinery to take the surface of your lawn back to soil, removing all dead matter.
We punch thousands of holes through your lawn to oxygenate the soil for impressive germination and its longer term health.
Following the creation of the best possible future home for our new lawn, we then overseed with a top rated professional lawn mix.
Our rescued lawns benefit from a lovely even colour and are extremely healthy with very little thatch now present - a clean slate and fresh start.
We apply our Water Conserver as standard to aid with the watering requirements of a new lawn. We will be on hand for as much aftercare advice as needed.
The most noticeable difference upon the completion of a Lawn Rescue is top dressing. We top-dress each of these with a compost based organic top dressing.
The gentle covering of material for seed provides the best possible germination - complete seed to soil contact.
Our dressing helps to iron out minor undulations in the lawn surface and provides seed with important trace nutrients for germination.
