AUTUMN LAWN & GARDEN TIPS
Autumn Quick Tip No.4
4. Deep Impact
Compacted lawns, where the soil has been squashed down, reduce the essential movement of water, air and nutrients to the roots of the lawn.
Compacted soil is the most common cause of dead or thin patches in your lawn. Don’t panic, it’s an easy fix. You just need to loosen up the soil by aerating it.
Use a garden fork deep or mechanical aerator to create holes for air and water to circulate through. You can rake over some dry, course, washed river sand afterwards to keep those holes open.
