Aeration & Overseeding
What is Aeration & Overseeding?
Core aeration is one of the most beneficial treatments available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to reach the root system of your lawn. Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns on heavy clay soils, those with thatch buildup, and any lawn that needs to be, "thickened up". Seeding after aeration is the perfect time to help your lawn "thicken up." By seeding after aeration, the aeration plugs allow the seed to penetrate the soil and increase the success of the seed germinating.
How Often Should I Aerate?
We recommend aerating ever year. The best times to aerate are during the spring and fall. Fertilization may be done before or after aeration and no after service maintenance is required. The plug-size holes left in the lawn by aeration will fill themselves in naturally over time and do not need to be removed.
Why Should I Aerate?
The main benefit of aeration is that it reduces soil compaction, which prevents absorption of water and nutrients to the root zone of your lawn. Aeration involves extracting small plugs of soil, known as "cores" from the landscape to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the root system and nurture the overall health and quality of the lawn.
