What is Core Aeration
Core aeration is best performed on an annual basis. Our treatment involves a machine called a “lawn aerator,” which uses mechanical tines to puncture channels into your lawn. The process treats over-compacted soil and provides space for air to reach your newly planted seedlings, along with water and light.
Aeration allows seedlings a better chance to establish strong root systems because the soil is tilled before other nutrients are added. Our trained team knows how to safely operate the machinery. For best results, the treatment should be performed in the fall in late September or early October.
The Importance of Overseeding & Other Important Steps in Restoring Your Lawn
Overseeding is important because it helps to fill in gaps in existing grass and deposits seeds into the freshly treated soil to push out weeds. The new seeds have a better chance of germination and healthy root development if they are spread after the soil is revitalized.
Other important steps in restoring your lawn:
- Slit Seeding - We utilize a piece of equipment called a “slit seeder,” which cuts tiny slots into your soil before depositing grass seeds.
- Topdressing - We provide nutrient-rich compost-based dressings that are applied to your lawn shortly after overseeding to give the new grass seeds a boost of nutrients.
We can offer stand-alone aeration but most clients choose to combine both of these processes.
