VERTIMOWING

REJUVENATE YOUR LAWN BY HAVING IT PROFESSIONALLY DE-THATCHED

Vertimowing is a process to remove the excessive thatch that collects near the surface of a lawn.

Thatch can prevent up to 75% of water that is applied to a lawn ever reaching the root system.  A thatched lawn will also suffer from having a scarred appearance when it is mowed.

THE CAUSES OF THATCH

*Excessive watering
*Over-fertilising
*Cutting too high in Summer
*Not mowing often enough
*Using a rotary mower

THE BENEFITS OF REMOVING THATCH

* Healthier lawn
* A lawn that is now much more water efficient
* Requires less fertiliser
* More even colour
* Less chance of dry spot
* Smooth even surface when mowed
* Eliminates a breeding place for pests and reduces fungal problems

Vertimowing is done with a special machine that removes the surface vegetation, allowing the roots and rhizomes to remain in the soil to regenerate the lawn.  If the process is completed during the growing season of September to March, full coverage can be achieved in 4-8 weeks depending on the weather conditions.

AFTER VERTIMOWING

* Application of a soil wetting agent is recommended at the completion of the treatment to ensure penetration of water to the root system.                                                  
* Check your reticulation for uneven coverage and select a watering program that will keep your lawn green without excessive growth.
* Fertilisers should be used little and often (lawns cannot use more fertiliser than they need, excessive quantities will only be washed away into our groundwater or river systems)
