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:
The first step in the aeration and seeding process is full aeration of your landscape. One of our highly-trained lawn care technicians will aerate your lawn by pulling small plugs of soil or using liquid aeration, depending on what type of aeration process is right for you. This process not only reduces thatch build up and soil compaction throughout your yard, but also allows for 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.
Golf course superintendents have known for years that aeration is a must in order to keep their courses in top shape, and it’s just as important for your lawn. At Nutri-Green, we offer two different types of aeration depending on what works best for your landscape.
This involves pulling plugs of soil from your lawn to allow air, water, and proper nutrients to seep down beneath to the grass roots. 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.
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!
Not sure if you need core or liquid aeration?
During the hot months of summer, fescue type grasses can go dormant or suffer injury, which limits the thickness of the turf. This weakened condition causes grass loss, thinning, and weed intrusion. To help fill in bald spots and keep your landscape looking lush, we follow up our aeration service with a full course of seeding. Our technicians will seed your newly-prepared landscape with our specialized mix of seed 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 that you get results as soon as possible. Lastly, we do a 2-week follow up inspection for peace of mind.
