Some lawns can be in such a poor state that they require complete refurbishment in order to restore them to full health. Traditionally, the only option in this case would be to completely remove the existing lawn, and then re-turf the entire lawn area.
Lawn Master launched the Regener8 quick lawn system in 2008 as a way of restoring lawns back to full health for as little as a quarter of the cost of re-turfing. Since then, we have continuously refined the process to deliver the best results.
Regener8 was the first service of its kind in the UK. It’s the combination of specially-developed professional products, applied in the right way by highly skilled turf care experts, that produces high-quality lawns that our customers love.
If you think your lawn is beyond repair, Regener8 is the ideal solution. It not only reduces the cost of a new lawn, but also provides a number of benefits compared to re-turfing.
The application process of Regener8 is broken down into eight individual smaller applications which can be completed in two visits. A herbicide application and moss killer is completed during our first visit. The remaining applications are completed during our second visit.
We apply either a non-selective herbicide to kill all vegetation, or a selective herbicide to eradicate undesirable weeds.
A moss killer is applied, typically in a liquid soluble form. We may alternatively use a lawn sand moss killer. Moss will turn black shortly after the application.
A few weeks after our first visit, we use professional scarifiers to remove as much of the moss and dead organic matter as possible. This vigorous process involves passing over the lawn in multiple directions until the soil is visible.
After the scarification process has been completed, we collect and bag all of the thatch and debris for your disposal. We can let you know about local garden waste collection services or place it in a compost heap or other suitable waste area. We then prepare the surface for seeding.
Once the surface is prepared, we apply the most suitable type of grass seed to the entire lawn area using calibrated spreaders. Your lawns may require different grass types depending on their growing environment.
We apply a layer up to 1.75” thick of our unique dressing. The product is applied using rakes or specialist top dressing spreaders. Other tools such as lutes and drag mats may be used to ensure an even application. The dressing ensures that the seed will establish properly in a short period of time, as well as benefitting your lawn’s soil structure.
Additional seed is applied to ensure that a thick, lush and healthy lawn establishes. The entire area is then lightly raked to mix the seed into the dressing.
Fertiliser is applied to ensure your new lawn establishes as quickly as possible. It provides a steady supply of the right nutrients and lasts for up to six weeks.
Irrigation is the key to successful germination, and this means you may need to purchase some basic equipment if you don’t already have it. You will need a hose pipe of adequate length and a suitable sprinkler system attachment which can be purchased from DIY stores.
If possible, it is best to irrigate in the morning before 10am as water evaporates less when the temperature is cooler. Watering little and often is the best approach, but watering adequately on a daily basis should be enough to ensure that seed germinates. Watering is still required once the seed has germinated to ensure it grows into a healthy, strong plant.
Ensure that the same area of lawn is not watered for too long, and minimise foot traffic as much as possible when moving sprinklers to different areas.
We will advise you when to mow your lawn. Please don’t be tempted to cut it too early. Some lawns establish faster than others. You’ll typically need to carry out the first cut 3-6 weeks after the Regener8 process has been completed.
