Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

1 Scar­ify: With a spring tine rake, rake off all the mossy thatch and other claggy plant de­bris that has built up to neaten and freshen it.

2 Aer­ate: Us­ing a hol­low tine aer­a­tor for best results, pierce the soil at reg­u­lar in­ter­vals, re­mov­ing the soil plugs and top dress with sandy soil.

3 Re­pair fun­gal dam­age:

Re­duce red thread by aer­at­ing. Counter fairy rings by spik­ing, wa­ter­ing and feed­ing lawns.

4 Cor­rect bumps and gaps:

Slice open bumpy ar­eas of lawn to re­move soil and level as needed, wa­ter­ing in well. Brush sandy loam into gaps.
