Vertimowing a Specialty!

Vertimowing (called scarifying in the eastern states)  is the process of removing an excess build up of thatch on your lawn.

As a general rule of thumb, the more aggressive the lawn variety the more frequent it will require vertimowing.

Lawn thatch is the build up of dead stolons (runners) on top of the soil. As lawns continue to grow and regenerate new stolons, the old stolons will die off underneath the new growth. Over a period of time these dead stolons continue to build up into a thicker mat.

Apart from the ugly appearance left after lawn mowing, as the thatch layer continues to increase in thickness, less and less of the roots from the new stolons manage to grow into the soil, the lawn slowly starves from lack of nutrients over a period of many years.

The second effect is that a lot of water will become trapped in the thatch layer, much of this trapped water will never make it into the soil, but will evaporate instead.

An ugly appearance, and increasing poor health from lack of nutrients and water make lawn vertimowing vital in the continuing health of our lawns.

When properly completed, the vertimowing process will return a more level appearance to the lawn, as well as leaving a far more beautiful finish after mowing.

Cleanups and Rubbish Removal

If you've done a big effort in the garden last weekend, give V.I.P. a call to safely remove the clippings, rubbish and extras that have been produced.

My rates are very reasonable.



Full gutters can be a fire risk in the hotter months and a flood risk whenever it rains. If you notice your gutters are a bit full, give V.I.P. a call on 13 26 13. Two storey premises are not a problem.
