Core Aeration & Overseeding
Lawn Aeration Service
Having your lawn aerated annually is essential for the overall health of your turf grass. Core aeration is the mechanical removal of small plugs of grass, thatch, and soil throughout your yard. The main benefit of aerating your lawn is increasing the amount of oxygen that reaches the roots of the grass which stimulates new growth and a healthier lawn.
Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn:
- Increased oxygen to roots
- Increase fertilizer uptake by turf grass
- Increased water uptake by grass
- Reduces thatch
Aeration of the roots system is the most significant benefit of having your lawn aerated annually, but some of the other benefits mentioned help improve your lawns health. For example after core aeration service has been done we recommend having the lawn fertilized, because those 1000's of holes throughout the yard will get the fertilizer in to the soil improving its effectiveness. Another great service to have done immediately following core aeration is to have your lawn overseeded. Those holes created by the aeration machine give new seeds a place where they are shaded from the sun and less likely to dry out so they germinate better and add to the density of the lawn. Watering your lawn becomes more effective because the water is absorbed into the soil more quickly and is less likely to run off saving you water.
Lawn Overseeding Services
Does your lawn have bare spots or just need to be thicker. Lawn overseeding is the process of spreading grass seed over the existing turf. Overseeding is best for larger areas where the grass is thin or for small bare spots caused by disease or removal of large weeds. Overseeding a lawn is one of the best ways to thicken a lawn and improve its health and appearance. Having your lawn overseeded after you start a weed removal program is common to improve the density of the lawn once the weeds have died.
Benefits of Overseeding Your Lawn:
- Fill in areas of damaged turf from summer stress, diseases or insects
- Thicken and increase density of the lawn
- Improve ability to fight insects and diseases
- Make the lawn look amazing
Lawn overseeding is an effective service by itself but is often combined with our lawn aeration service. By combining the services the seed to soil contact is increased and aids in seed germination and improved overseeding results.
