What is Aeration?
Over time your lawn can become compacted by people walking on it and through settlement of the soil. Aeration is essentially poking holes in the ground, providing a way to let your lawn breathe, help rainwater drain away and nutrients reach the roots of the grass.
Different soil types require different types of aeration, for example a clay soil would benefit from solid-tines being fitted to the machine. At Top Lawn we recognise the importance of surveying the lawn before recommending a treatment plan, which enables us to give you the best advice specific for your lawn.
What are the benefits?
Aeration enables the roots of the grass to grow healthier and deeper in the ground, which helps the lawn survive in times of drought. Air, water and nutrients are able to reach the roots easily which also increases the overall health of the lawn, which in turn helps it fight off diseases such as red thread, fusarium patch, dollar spot and dry patch. This process is essential for a healthy lawn and should be carried out annually.

"Frankly, I had abandoned hope. My 2 acres had been surrendered to weeds and moss over 17 years. The area was too big for me to even begin to put right alone.
I sought expert help – and chose to use Robert and his team. Great decision! In just 12 months, I have recovered a magnificent lush, green lawn that I never expected to see again. I happily recommend Robert and his team.
They know what they are talking about."

"Robert prepared a detailed plan to sort out the problems. Thanks to his expert knowledge and the efficiency of the treatment, my lawn already looks so much better. I am amazed at the difference in such a short time.
Six months ago my lawn looked awful, full of moss and weeds with pale starved grass. I thought it was beyond repair. A friend suggested I contact Robert at then Countrywide LawnDoctor (Now Top Lawn) - I am so glad I did.
I am delighted with the Top Lawn service. They are a pleasure to deal with. I have happily recommended them to friends and neighbours."

"When first described to me by Robert Martin of Top Lawn, their Green Keeper programme seemed to be an expensive and over-egged option. Motivated by the promise I would not regret it if I signed up, I decided to give it a try. Now several months into the experiment I see why I made the right decision. Basically without any input from me, save for signing the standing order, the lawn has moved from disaster to wonder. From a weed infested mess to an area of lush green healthy lawn all in a matter of months it is truly an all-in care programme that seems to be working to perfection. I commend Robert and his expanding team and I endorse his Green Keeper programme."
Mrs M W
"I have known Robert and his Lawn Treatment business since he started nearly 10 years ago when it was Countrywide LawnDoctor. His professional approach to us and his enthusiastic care of our lawn by himself and his staff have always impressed.
The lawn is in good condition through very wet and very dry times, and much admired by all.“

"Back in March I called Top Lawn to advise us on our ‘lawns’, an unattractive combination of moss, weeds, various grasses, or no grass at all. The ground was compacted, the soil impoverished, and really I held out little hope that any treatment was worth the effort or expense since the entire area seemed beyond redemption! How wrong could I be. Aeration and various treatments started in April, and in just six months almost the whole area has been vastly improved - we have grass where there was no grass, weeds have been dispatched, and areas that have never seen grass are now greening up. There is more to do - some very difficult dry, shaded areas need further attention, but from results already achieved, I’m confident by the end of next year we’ll have a lawn to be proud of, thanks to the expertise of Robert Martin and his dedicated team.“
