Scarifying scaring the living daylights out of your gardening?

Scarifying scaring the living daylights out of your gardening?

Recently we covered the benefits of dethatching your sleepy winter lawn to envigorate growth in anticipation of Spring.

Scarifying - the process of cutting and removing debris from your lawn - using a specialised machine or vertimower will remove not just the thatch, but also most of your lawn, leaving just the roots and stolons. Best left to serious groundsfolk.

Spring into action by dethatching your lawn

A build-up of thatch over time can make your lawn thick and spongy.

Mowing on a mulching mower setting without a catcher can leave behind heaps of lawn clippings adding to the thatch layer.

A cyclinder mower tends to ride over buffalo grass varieties allowing for build-up of thatch. Dead runners or 'stolons' in buffalo grass varieties can also create thatch.

Spring lawn care in the Sunshine State

Spring is a very important time of year for lawn lovers everywhere!

By the end of August (depending on where you live) the days will be getting longer and the grass should be doing the same. At Oasis Lawns, we're already back to mowing twice weekly.

A simple rule of thumb is when the nights get warmer and you no longer need to light the fire or turn on your heater, it's Spring time for the lawn and for your garden.

Once overnight temperatures warm up, soil temperatures increase and your lawn starts to grow. In cooler regions of the state your lawn will come out of its dormancy; in warmer climates your lawn will grow faster. In both cases, mowing frequencies should be closer.

Mowing for success; keep your lawn looking its best

Mowing is an art form.

If you don’t believe us take a look at any football match showing the grounds of one of the big clubs. Notice those lovingly laid stripes at the start of the match. That takes practise.

As well as being an art form mowing is also a bit of a science. No don’t worry, we’re not talking about complex equations and testing. But you do need to think about how you go about it and adjusting for each different season.

Before we look at the ins and outs of mowing your lawn, let’s imagine getting down on our hands and knees and having a closer look to see what keeps it going.
