Aeration & Over-Seeding
A Healthy Lawn
Your lawn is a living organism. It is extremely robust and resilient to all the elements nature may bring against it. However, it does need some care. The more care you can provide the better your lawn will look and perform. Aeration is one of the most important procedures you can provide for your lawn. Aeration does several important things. First, when your lawn is properly aerated it will start to get the air or oxygen it needs. Your lawn needs air not only above the surface of the soil but also below the surface of the soil. Yes, air needs to get below the surface. Two other important items crucial for your lawn are water and nutrients. Water, air and nutrients all work together to promote a healthy green lawn. To get all these important ingredients down to the root system you need to have your lawn aerated.
Aeration pulls plugs of soil from the ground to allow the air, water and nutrients to easily get below the surface of the soil down to the roots of the grass. This promotes a deeper root system and over time your lawn will become more resistant to light drought conditions. The roots will look deep down for what it needs rather than stay on the soil surface for water, air and nutrients. A deep root system is very important for longevity and the health of your lawn.
Over seeding is an important step for a healthy lawn. We perform over seeding during the aeration process. Since your lawn will be mowed on a regular basis it will never grow past 3 or 4 inches. It will never have a chance to produce it's own seeds. Reseeding needs to be performed manually. Every lawn needs to be reseeding at some point. If your lawn gets thin in spots weeds can take over. It is important to have a full healthy lawn. Aeration and reseeding is the best combination to keep weeds out and have a beautiful lawn your neighbors will admire.
A beautiful lawn just doesn't happen!
