Renovation and Repair

Top Dressing: Top dressing is only required for an extra smooth surface. Shave lawn, use a top dressing soil with approximately 80% sand and & 20% soil, no more than 1cm deep, and work the top dressing in until some leaf shows through or cut out an area 20mm deep and replace with a new Lawn.

Aerating the Soil: Avoid soil compaction by using a garden fork to aerate soil once a year (preferably in spring). The best technique is to move the fork in a backwards motion. Drive the fork in vertically and lever it though 30 degree to lift and rack the ground in 15cm intervals.

How to Patch Worn Areas: In any worn areas dig the area out 40-50mm. Make the area level, lower the prepared area 20mm and replace with a new lawn. Use the extra soil to top dress over the new joins. Water well till established.

Pest Treatments: Seek expert advice specific to your regional area for any serious pest problems. We have an introduction to pests on our Pests Page
