Schedule Aeration and Seeding Now!
Following a summer of heat, mowing and foot traffic, your lawn’s soil may be badly compacted and in need of help this fall. Aeration can provide just the pick-me-up that your lawn needs.
All lawns, regardless of their condition, can benefit from some level of renovation every year or so. One of the best means of rejuvenating turf is to combine the power of professional aeration with overseeding.
Why Should You Act Now?
Aeration is a mechanical process that can be completed well into fall, but overseeding needs to be completed earlier in order to ensure warm temperatures for seed germination.
Punch Your Lawn Full of Holes
During aeration, a machine known as a core aerator pulls plugs of soil and thatch up from the lawn to break up compacted soil and create more room for air, water and fertilizer to reach the roots. This results in expansion of the root system for thicker, healthier grass. Aeration also helps break up thatch, which can prevent water, fertilizer and insect controls from reaching the soil if it gets too thick. Sometimes, clients are turned off by the look of a newly aerated lawn. We encourage you to trust us and let us aerate your lawn anyway. The results are well worth it!
Thicken Up Your Turf With Overseeding
Following up aeration with overseeding is a great way to thicken up a thin lawn or to add a hardier, more drought-resistant grass variety to your property. Good seed-to-soil contact is essential for seeding success, and the new grass seed will have an easier time growing in the holes left behind by aeration. Keep in mind that if your lawn has been seeded, the soil should be kept moist with light, frequent sprinklings until the new grass is well established.
