Aeration & Overseeding in Tulsa
Aeration and overseeding are much more than just lawn care services—they can be a landscape lifesaver! Usually implemented once or twice per year starting in May, this service can help to fill in any bald spots, reduce lawn compaction, and give your landscape a much-needed growth spurt.
During this process, our team of lawn care experts will:
- Reduce soil compaction to give your lawn some breathing room
- Improve oxygen, water, and nutrient flow to roots
- Seed with a specialized seeding blend to encourage growth
- Provide follow-up visits to check for results
- And so much more!
Refresh Your Lawn with Aeration
At Nutri-Green, we offer two different types of aeration services depending on what works best for your lawn and landscape. This process not only reduces thatch build-up and soil compaction throughout your yard but also allows for an increased flow of water and nutrients to the roots of your grass. This step fully prepares your landscape for the seeding process and helps to keep your yard healthy all year long.
1. Core Aeration
This involves pulling plugs of soil from your lawn to allow air, water, and proper nutrients to seep down beneath to the grassroots. These holes help the roots and grass grow strong and healthy, but will only last for a short period of time and only impacts 3-5% of your yard. Core aeration is performed to break up the soil compaction that happens over the course of a year. When the soil is compacted, it makes it hard for proper circulation and nutrients to reach the roots. For example, heavy lawns and excess lawn thatch buried under the grass surface will starve the roots from essential elements.
2. Liquid Aeration
This process gets the smaller soil particles to clump together, making larger pore spaces for air, water, and nutrients to flow. This process is able to adjust the size of the soil grains in order to give your lawn more breathing room. It also removes sodium from the soil, better allowing your lawn and plants to receive proper nutrients. Since it is a liquid treatment, this will cover 100% of your yard. Plus, it is odor-free, environmentally friendly, and healthy for your lawn! Liquid aeration has the same benefits as core aeration, but is even better!
Promote New Growth with Seeding
During the hot summer months, fescue-type grasses can go dormant or suffer injury, age out, and die, limiting the turf's thickness. This weakened condition causes grass loss, thinning, bald areas, and weed intrusion. Our overseed program, complete with fertility applications and a follow-up evaluation, is your winning strategy for a thick, lush lawn. Our technicians will seed your newly prepared lawn with our specialized mix of seeds that will take root quickly and begin to fill in bald spots throughout your yard. We even include a starter fertilizer and comprehensive maintenance guide with our seeding services to ensure you get premium results quickly. Lastly, we perform a follow-up evaluation to inspect the performance of the new grass; that way, you have peace of mind.
