Your lawn might require vertimowing if it has grown to the point where it is soft to tread on, looks unhealthy or scalps easily. In Rockingham, thatchy lawns are a prevalent problem that make the grass struggle to stay healthy.
Why is vertimowing so good for your lawn?
Vertimowing is an aggressive, labor-intensive mowing service that uses specialised mowers, with verticle blades, to remove thatch and dead runners from the lawn. Vertimowing can also be known as scarifying or dethatching. Here are four reasons why vertimowing can transform your lawn:
- Enhances the retention and absorption of water
Unfortunately, a spongy lawn’s thatch will absorb rain or irrigation water before it reaches the root zone. This water is then wasted to evaporation before it can do any good for the lawn. This often results in significant losses of the water put onto a lawn.
With vertimowing, the lawn is dethatched, allowing water to reach the root zone, where it is needed.
- Enhances the hue and vitality of the lawn
Similar to how vertimowing aids in water absorption, it also boosts the uptake of nutrients from fertilisers. After being vertimowed, your lawn will be a darker, more appealing colour and this deep colour can be maintained with regular fertiliser.
- Prevents scalping
Over time, thatch accumulation causes mowers to “sink” into the lawn. Which makes lawns hard to mow, and easy to scalp. This problem is fully resolved by vertimowing.
- Reduces the risk of fungal infections
Some fungal diseases may thrive in a climate of damp, moist thatch. Removing the thatch reduces the likely hood of these fungal diseases.

Anyone in Western Australia who is serious about having a great lawn should invest in aeration services. Lawn aeration is the process of punching holes into the soil to relieve soil compaction. The four main benefits of aeration are:
- Increases water penetration into sandy soil
Hydrophobic soils are one of the largest issues in Rockingham lawns. They become hydrophobic, repel water and cause dry/dead patches when the summer weather hits. Aeration can greatly improve your lawn’s ability to absorb water, especially when combined with a wetting agent. This will fix dry spots/ prevent dry spots from occuring.
- Boosts the growth of roots
Researchers have found that the more compact a soil is, the less roots will grow in that soil. Likewise the softer the soil is the more roots can grow into that soil. Aeration reduces compaction which results in more roots, and deeper root. These deeper roots will help your lawn to withstand hot and dry spells and lessen the need for frequent watering.
- Enhances the reaction of your lawn to fertilisers
Just like water, granule fertilisers need to reach the root layer to be effective and aeration makes it easier for them to do so. As a result, lawns that have been aerated will respond to fertilisation far more favourably to fertiliser applicaiton
- Harmful gas emissions from the soil
Toxic gases can build up in soils, this is especially true with certain fungal diseases like fairy ring. Aeration helps to open up the soil and release these harmful gases from the soil.
Our aeration technique
Silverstone Gardening only aerates our clients’ lawns using the best equipment available. To best benefit your lawn, these machines punch deep, tidy holes.
To further strengthen your grass, we can combine our aeration services with applications of fertiliser and wetting agents.
Top dressing is the process of putting a thin layer of soil or sand to the surface of of your lawn. There are four main reasons to top dress your lawns.
- Create a level lawn
Uneven or lumpy lawns are easy to scalp, especially when using a cylinder mower. In order to achieve a much more level finish, to prevent scalping and creat a more beautiful lawn, you will need to top dress. Top dressing will fill in the low areas of the lawn, leveling the lawn.
- Improve the soil’s quality
When applied with a high-quality soil, top dressing can aid in boosting the soil’s organic content. This is especially important to help improve the sandy, poor quality soils we have in Rockingham. Adding a high quality soil can provide your lawns with significant, long-lasting advantages and it is especially effective when combined with core aeration because the soil improver will fill the core holes, which distribute the soil deeper into the existing soil profile.
- Assisting in the repair of damaged or diseased lawns
A lawn’s ability to recover from damage can be aided by top dressing. The amount of time it takes for the lawn to recover can be sped up by lightly covering a bare patch and giving the lawn something to grow into.
- Aiding in the control of thatch
Top dressing can help minimise thatch buildup and lessen the need for vertimowing. Even though it can’t fully cure a thatched lawn, it may be helpful in some circumstances.
Our top dressing technique
To meet the needs and objectives of your particular lawn, Silverstone Gardening offers access to a wide range of high-quality soils. Our skilled gardeners can handle both big and little jobs since they have a keen eye for detail and access to the best tools.
