Spiking your lawn with a garden fork (known as ‘aerating’ the lawn) will boost its growth.
This is because the process stimulates the root growth, which, in turn, positively encourages the top growth, resulting in a green, lush lawn. Push the prongs of the fork into the ground to a depth of at least 7.5cm and then move the fork backwards and forwards to increase the size of the holes. Once this has been done, sprinkle river sand into the holes and fertilise the lawn with Neutrog Rapid Raiser. Follow this with a good watering. Four weeks later give the lawn an application of Neutrog Blade Runner.
