Aeration & Healthy Lawns

Having your lawn professionally aerated is a great way to reduce thatch, loosen up compacted soils and make it easier for water and nutrients to reach the roots of your turf. This extra step in professional lawn care helps insure that your soil remains healthy and balanced— a great environment for your turfgrass to put down roots.

Even with the best care available, lawns can thin out and lose color due to excessive thatch buildup, hard or compacted soils, or periods of high temperature, high humidity, or drought. Aerifying and overseeding is recognized by turf experts such as golf course superintendents as the best treatment to control thatch, reduce compaction, fill-in bare spots and revitalize growth.

An aeration treatment removes small cores of soil and thatch to allow air, moisture and fertilizer to penetrate down to the root zone. The cores brought to the surface contain microorganisms, which help the breakdown of the woody thatch tissue. This allows the roots of existing grass plants to spread out and grow deeper, creating a healthier, thicker lawn.

Fall Aeration & Overseeding

Aerating and overseeding your lawn in the fall is the best of both worlds. During the fall months, the top growth of turfgrasses begin to slow down, but root development is actually increasing. The aerating process further helps stimulate this new growth and will provide a healthier, deep-rooted lawn next year, a lawn that will be stronger and better able to withstand the stresses of summer.

Overseeding combined with aeration is a great way to create a lush thick lawn. The fall is the best time of the year to plant grass seed. With the reduced heat levels and usually increased rain make for ideal growing conditions. Our aeration - seeding program is the ideal fall program for anyone looking for a thick, healthy lawn next year.
