How We Can Help You

Revitalise your lawn by eliminating the damaging effects of soil compaction and thatch build-up. Lawn coring creates an environment where grass seeds have direct contact with the soil; the holes created allow air, water and nutrients to circulate. Grass roots can then grow into that open area and branch out further, creating a stronger root system which results in lush green grass.

Mowing Height

Mowing height may affect grass root growth more than anything else. There is a direct link between grass height and root depth. As a rule, the higher the grass is cut, the deeper the roots go. This is especially true of cool season turf grasses, such as the fescues and ryegrasses. Note “Mowing height” does not mean that you let your grass grow tall before cutting it, it means you mow it at a higher level each time you mow.

Most people cut their lawns too low. Tall fescue, bluegrass, ryegrass, and a few species of warm season grasses can be maintained at 3 to 4 inches all year. Deeper roots help grasses to endure heat and environment stress much easier as well.

Fertiliser

Liquid fertiliser: The main benefit of liquid forms of fertiliser is in the application. Liquids can be applied evenly to all areas of the lawn without fear of getting too much in one particular area. As a liquid it also spreads outward as it is absorbed through the leaves of the plant as well as throughout the soil. This prevents excessive amounts of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium from accumulating in a small area. With liquid fertiliser, its ability to soak into the ground is beneficial because the roots can absorb it more efficiently without it evaporating away.

Soil Testing

What soil pH is best for your lawn?

You’ll often read the recommendation to check soil pH, a lot of people ask me what does pH actually mean? pH is simply a measure of how acid or alkaline a substance is. A pH of 6-7 is neutral, below 6 is acid, the lower the number the more acid the site. There are stacks of gardening books that list the preferred pH for specific plants.

The good news for most lawns is that they will tolerate a fairly wide range of soil pH. Anywhere from about pH 5.5 to 7 is great.

About Fraser Coast Lawn Coring

Credit to: Emb Photographics

Michael and Tracey started Fraser Coast Lawn Coring after moving to their new home in 2016.

Their lawn was brown and the sandy soil was so compact aeration was the logical solution. Unable to find aeration services in the area, Michael sought to find a solution that will service the Wide Bay Community a state of the art machine that covers yards, golf courses and sports fields, yet is compact enough to manoeuvre around smaller areas such as backyard swimming pools.

Commencing in Canberra Cemeteries as a grounds keeper, Michael has over 26 years of industry experience.

With a down to earth friendly approach, he offers a range of advice, from soil testing and applying the correct fertiliser to the ongoing care of your lawn.

Lawn Coring and Soil Compaction

Lawn maintenance hinges on a few basic tasks: mowing, feeding, weeding and aerating. Tackle these four tasks faithfully, and your turf will be on a fast track to picture-perfect good looks. It’s easy to spot the need to cut, fertilize or weed, but knowing if turf needs aeration is not so obvious – unless you know the signs.

In some cases, you don’t really need to test your lawn to see if you should aerate. Soil that’s compacted on a regular basis needs to be aerated on a regular basis. Compacted soil puts the squeeze on grass roots, inhibiting their ability to function – and robbing lush looks from your lawn. If your lawn is frequently driven on, grass probably already looks thin and less than ideal. The weight of a vehicle – even a mower – compacts soil, so it’s important to vary mowing patterns to slow soil compaction.

Heavy clay soil or a thatch layer of more than half an inch also signals the need for aeration. Lawns that show heavy wear and thinning from foot traffic, turn brown quickly when dry weather lingers, or have thick stands of clover are good candidates for aeration. If water tends to puddle after rains, taking a long time to drain, your soil could benefit from aeration. If grass growth stops in the heat of October and soil feels as hard as rock, you need to aerate. Last but not least, if you have never aerated your lawn, chances are you need to, but it’s worth doing a simple diagnostic test to make sure.

How to test:
Simply use a screwdriver or pencil and push it into the lawn.You should be able to reach a depth of 3-4 inches. If not you should aerate/ core your lawn.

Michael is a business man that actually cares about his customers..the service was exceptional. He phoned when he was going to be earlier than outtime and phoned when he was running a little behind. Nothing was too much trouble and the after service advice was great. Now we would love some rain to see the grass thicken up. He doesnt charge like a bull very reasonable . Thanks again would highly recommend.
