I've just ordered myself one of these the top pic. After putting the holes in I back fill with fine sand. A chap who works for local council golf course told me how to go on. But you could get these to slip of your boots or trainers don't look too bad depending on how hard the ground is tho atb

Should use sharp sand and not a fine sand

Yes aeration is the key,we aim to solid tine the greens with the Toro pro core at least once a month.

It's helps with drainage,puts new oxygen to the roots which is vital to healthy turf.

As far as the moss I use a soluble iron which dries the moss out and then scarify to pull it out.The aim of the game is to keep the dew off the grass as that's where moss and disease thrive so brushing and switching the dew off the turf will help prevent it ?

i put moss killer on mine last year, moss went black and was raked up - i seeded those patches but the moss is back this year sadly

Try aerating that area affected by the moss mate.

I was using this iron sulphate last year and it's solved  a bit of a moss problem i had on part my lawn that gets shaded a fair bit by a fence a d conifers.

You don't want to be putting lawn feed and grass seed down at the same time

If that dressing has got 'feed' in it.. then it's too late mate!

I don't think, or I'm assuming, it hasn't got added fertiliser in it.

Just trace nutrients from organic matter I'd imagine.

I haven't done a lawn reno before Chid... I'm just winging it with a few tips off the web..?
