Lawn Care Advice

Mar 1, 2024Uncategorized

As we approach Spring 2024, it’s time to start planning your lawn care. Spring is the perfect time to start considering aerating your ground and composting for a vibrant and lush lawn in summer. In this blog, we explain the importance of aerating and using peat-free compost from Green Waste NW in Cheshire.

Understanding Aeration and Its Importance

Aeration is a crucial process for your garden or estate. It involves making small holes in the soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply, producing a stronger, more vigorous lawn. The best time for this task is during the growing season when the grass can heal and fill in any open areas after soil plugs are removed. Typically, for Cheshire estates, early spring or autumn are ideal times. This is when the weather is mild, and the grass is in its peak growth phase.

The Role of Composting

Composting enriches the soil, helping to retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests. More importantly, it encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material. The transition from spring to summer, or autumn, presents the perfect opportunity to compost. This timing allows the compost to integrate with the soil, enhancing its quality before the major growing seasons.

Why Peat-Free Compost?

Peat-free compost is not only beneficial for your garden but also for the environment. It offers a sustainable alternative, avoiding the depletion of peat bogs, which are vital for carbon storage.
