A regular maintenance service for any lawn that is trying to remain healthy and green.
If you don’t know what aeration or overseeding are, or are unsure if you need them, you’ve come to the right place!
Aeration is a process that involves perforating the soil with small holes. This reduces soil compaction, which allows water, air and nutrients to get down to the roots. With less soil compaction, newer and deeper roots are able to grow and flourish. When the roots are able to spread out and grow, they become healthier, which will help the grass to thrive
Add to that Overseeding with a premium fescue blended seed laced in fertilizer and the results speak for themselves.
These new varieties help to boost your lawn’s color and health for overall lawn improvement. Early fall is one of the best times for overseeding, since cool-season grasses grow best at this time of year. The tougher, warm season weeds are less active, and the warm soil, combined with cooler air encourages germination and growth.
Overseeding after aeration will introduce water, air, and nutrients to the new seeds as well as the established turf, and stimulate high rates of growth for both.
Aeration and Overseeding should be a regular part of your lawns maintenance, particularly If your lawn sees a lot of traffic, such as children or pets running around.
Many highly trafficked properties with lots of turf, such as golf courses, may even aerate up to three times a year.
Places with new sod, or houses that have just been built will also require this service in order for the grass to take root and grow into a healthy lawn. Soil compaction occurs more than you may realize, even through the act of mowing regularly.
This is why it is important to aerate once a year, and keep your lawn healthy and your grass roots happy!
