Maintaining a Healthy Thick, Green and Lush Lawn
Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.
Power Raking is the process of removing dead grass and excess thatch from the lawn. We recommend removing thatch once a year in the spring prior to new growth to promote a thicker and healthier lawn.
After the dead thatch has been power raked, manually pack the thatch off the lawn with a rake and bag them. Then it’s time to over-seed and then proceed with the fertilization process. We prefer bagging all the dead grass and removed from the lawn in an envirobag as done below:
The detaching process scrub the lawn and comb out all the dead grass (thatch) that could not allow your seed and fertilizer get to the root of the soil. Your lawn will looks more cleaner and nicer after it’s mechanically power-raked.
The seed Spreader should be set to 7 for grass seed, while it’s set to 4.5 for spreading the fertilizer because the fertilizer is too much it could burn your lawn.
After over-seeding and application of fertilizer to your lawn make sure you do not forget the 20-20 rule: Water your law for 20 minutes for 20 days straight to get a great result.
Lastly, apply weed control chemicals to keep any dandilion weeds off your lawn. When applying weed control, make sure you apply it even on rocks, garden, stones that you may have on your lawn to totally eliminate them.
I hope you enjoy your gardening this summer!
