Verticutting and Aerating
The quad lawn was heavily scarified last year, see blog entry 8th September 2014 'The Scarifying Of The Quad Lawn Begins', ripping out the thatch that had built up over the previous three years. Today Joss, joined by Callum, began the spring maintenance of the quad, verticutting and aerating. The process of verticutting is less harsh than scarification, penetrating the top layer of turf removing dead grass on the surface rather than reaching deep in to the thatch layer. The aerating makes holes in the turf enabling water and air to reach the roots of the grass.
