After a long winter of frosts and cold, dry winds you lawns are probably looking sad and yellowing - at least not as good as they could be looking. Luckily, it's easy to get your lawn looking fresh and beautiful again by aerating your lawn.
The first step is to determine whether or not your lawn would benefit from aeration. The best way to do this is by digging a small about 10-12 centimetres deep (in an inconspicuous area, of course) and examine the grass roots. If they don't extend further than about 5 centimetres, aeration would benefit your lawn.
If the grass roots are deeper than 5cm, it's possible your grass just needs a good water and a feed.
Once you've established that your lawn needs aeration, you'll need to prepare your lawn. For best results, thoroughly water your lawn a couple of days before aerating it.
When you aerate your lawn, use the corer on each area of your lawn once (the pattern from the corer should not overlap). A mechanical core aerator, like this one, is recommended for best results.
You can rake up the soil cores or leave them to breakdown naturally.
After aeration, spread a thin layer of compost (sand could also work) over the freshly aerated soil. It is an ideal time to apply grass seeds and fertiliser.
Above all, as the days get hotter just remember to water your grass once a week and occasionally fertilise if you think your grass needs an extra snack.
In no time, your lawn will be looking healthy and far greener than on the other side.

At Camden Hire we have the experience and expertise to make your outdoor event a first class affair.
We have a large range of stylish marquees, pagodas and hoeckers to suit all occasions, from weddings on the beach, to birthday parties in the backyard. Marquees and hoeckers give you the freedom and flexibility to host your event in the location of your choice any time of year. Guests can enjoy your event in a beautiful outdoor setting, without worrying about the wind or the rain.
These structures can also be altered to match the temperature with the ability to leave the sides open on a hot day, or to add heaters and flooring in cooler weather.
A wide selection means you can choose the size of the structure that best meets your needs rather than tailoring your guest list to fit the venue’s capacity.
Marquees and hoeckers act as blank canvases that can be transformed into the decorative theme or colour scheme of your choice – allowing you to personalise your parties. Our professional team has a wealth of knowledge to help you create the event you want. We are also a one-stop shop offering furniture, flooring, generators, lighting, decorations, catering equipment, music and P.A. systems, accessories and more.
A hoecker with clear ceiling and wall panels was the shelter for a recent Camden wedding (as pictured) to allow some extra natural light. The ceremony itself utilised our chairs to seat it’s guests.
