Spring is a Good time to Aerate your Lawn

aerate your lawn

Spiking your lawn with a garden fork (to aerate your lawn) will boost its growth and spring is the best time to do this for several reasons.

This is because when you aerate your lawn it 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.
