‘Healthier’ to avoid watering lawns in ‘prolonged’ periods of heat – ‘it will survive’

The Lawn Association said: “Soil shrinks under very hot conditions and the air is sucked out.

“This is why aeration is so important.

“Once the summer heat has passed and you are looking for autumn jobs to do, use a hollow tine aerating fork or machine to give your lawn exactly what it needs.

“These aeration products remove cores of soil without further compressing what’s left, and this creates those essential small channels for improved root development, water percolation and nutrition longevity.
