Greenfeet - Water Logged Lawn

If your lawn is water logged or compacted, you’re likely to be frustrated by the surface water you get every time there’s a shower of rain. There’s only a limited number of things you can do to relieve a water logged lawn (some say waterlogged) or compacted lawn on your own.

The Greenfeet process always starts by surveying your lawn to assess the problem.

There are two aspects to good drainage:

water logged lawn
  • Surface drainage
  • Sub surface drainage

If either are not performing then problems will arise!

Water Logged Lawn Survey

The first thing we check is the surface. Here we check for compactness and check the depth of thatch.

We will then look underneath the surface at the type of soil.

We check the profile of the soil to ensure there are no soil pans or layers in the soil that the water can’t drain through.

Once this has been established we then put a plan in place to improve the drainage of your lawn.

At Greenfeet we have a number of treatments to improve drainage:

  • Aerating e.g. Hollow Coring or deep scarifying
  • Sand Spreading e.g. Top dressing of drainage sand will allow water drain faster
  • Soil Amendments e.g. Adding amendments into the soil to improve soil structure
  • Light Lawn Levelling e.g. Filling hollow or dips in lawns where water tends to hold
  • Rootzone replacement e.g. Digging out poor soil and replacing with new soil/sand rootzones
