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 law 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 to high in Summer
*Not mowing often enough
*Using a rotary mower

THE BENEFITS OF REMOVING THATCH



* Healthier Lawn
* That is now 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 fungi

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 3-4 weeks depending on the weather conditions.

AFTER VERTIMOWING



* A wetting agent is recommended at the completion of the Vertimowing process                                                 
* 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 (slow release fertilisers are preferred to ensure the environment is not damaged).

* Lawns cannot use more fertiliser than they need, excessive quantities will only be washed into our ground water or river systems.

MOWING



Regular cutting at the correct heights essential in order to achieve a good appearance of a lawn.  It will also help to deter weeds and reduce the need for vertimowing to be repeated too frequently.
