Aftercare Advice: Lawn Renovation Services
Thank you for taking our Lawn Renovation Services. To get the expected and best results please take time to read the following advice*. The aftercare will need to be done by you but it’s not difficult and we are happy to help with any queries.
Watering: this is the important bit!
Using the lawn:
Stay off the lawn as much as possible for the first month. It’s ok to go on the lawn to move the sprinkler. Be gentle, the young grass is delicate with shallow roots.
Items/Leaves on lawn:
Keep the lawn clear of any items, especially leaves. They will block light and kill the grass, leading to bare patches. Use a leaf blower on a low setting, once the seed has germinated, or a plastic leaf rake but be gentle.
Cut the lawn when the grass is 5cm to 6 cm tall and the soil is firm to walk on. Make sure your mower blades are sharp to ensure a clean cut. Use a wheeled rotary mower for the first few cuts, rather than a heavy roller/cylinder mower.
Lawn grass coverage:
It’s normal for renovated/overseeded lawn to look thin for a few months (allow 6+ months). A mix of normal seasonal weather, regular mowing and our annual lawn treatments will all help. A single 2mm grass shoot can occupy up to 10cm diameter when it’s mature. A lawn renovated in Spring can take until late Autumn or later to thicken up and vice versa.
New weeds may appear, which is normal. Our Annual Treatment Plan includes a weed treatment late Spring and Summer. We have to wait 2 months after the new grass has appeared before spraying any new weeds. New grass is fragile and can be damaged by weed spraying,
