Annual aeration and overseeding are important to keep your lawn green and healthy. We are now scheduling this service. Call us if you would like us to aerate and overseed your lawn.
Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted in the upper 1 to 1-1/2 inches. Mechanical aeration removes small cores two to three inches deep into the soil.
Benefits of aeration
- Reduces soil compaction
- Improves oxygen content
- Stimulates root growth
- Improves fertilizer uptake
- Enhances water uptake
- Reduces water runoff and puddles
- Enhances tolerance for heat and drought stress
We generally combine aeration with overseeding to fill in thin spots. This thickens the lawn, so weeds and moss have a difficult time getting established.
Spring and fall weather conditions are ideal for overseeding because of the warm temperatures and cool air, which allows the seeds to grow without drying out. The seeds should show shoots in about 10 days if properly cared for.
