Thatch is a layer of dead or diseased grass that is found between soil and a healthy surface layer.

De-thatching isn't fun, but in minor cases can be solved with a common garden rake. A de-thatching rake may be needed if the amount of thatch is severe. You'll need to rake the entire lawn, removing any dead grass that lifts up. 2 - Cultivate Regular cultivation is a handy task for any grass that is in desperate need of a helping hand.

Drainage is an overlooked area of general garden and lawn maintenance, which if neglected can quickly leave you with a bunch of problems to fix. When excessive water and rain fails to drain away properly, it can cause flooding. Flooding can destroy a lawn, leave standing water, promote the growth of disease and potentially affect neighbors too. With some easy and simple steps, however, you can improve your drainage system and prevent floods. Our Clearwater Irrigation Team can also analyze and take care of your irrigation and drainage systems if you need the help of a professional and local team. Keep Leaves out of Drains and Gutters Even the very best, self-sufficient irrigation systems can't prevent leaves getting blown into drains and gutters. A simple leaf clog can quickly cause flooding and potentially more significant problems. Use a rake or leaf blower to clear up any leaves that may collect on storm drains to prevent this. A simple clear out of leaves in your drains and gutters every few months can save you from a lot of trouble in the long run. Avoid Leaving Leaves and Dead Vegetation On Your Property If you've been working on your garden and have a pile of leaves or discarded plants, be careful not to leave them in areas where they can get washed or blown towards sprinkler heads or drain covers. Check for leaks or damage to pipes if you see flooding If you suspect there is a deeper problem with your irrigation system and have noticed flooding, then try to inspect your property for any signs of leaks and damage. If possible, direct the water flow away from your home's foundations and towards drains. Get an expert to check for leaking valves or Low Head Drainage Problems An expert can come and [...]
