Core Aeration is a mechanical process that uses a specialized machine to extract small cores of soil from the lawn. These cores are then left on the surface to break down naturally, improving soil structure and allowing for better air and water penetration.
Overseeding involves spreading new grass seed over existing turf to fill in bare spots, thicken the lawn, and improve overall grass density. It helps to crowd out weeds and enhance the lawn's appearance.
Aeration and overseeding provide ample time for the new grass to establish strong roots before winter, resulting in a lush and vibrant lawn in the following spring.
Enhances Nutrient Absorption: Over time, the soil under your lawn becomes compacted. Aeration involves the process of creating small holes in the soil, allowing these vital nutrients to penetrate deep into the root zone.
Improves Oxygen Circulation: Compacted soil restricts the flow of oxygen to the roots. Aeration promotes better oxygen circulation, allowing the roots to develop deeper and stronger, which leads to healthier and more resilient grass.
Drains Water Effectively: Excessive thatch buildup or compacted soil can lead to poor water drainage, causing water to pool on the surface instead of penetrating into the soil resulting in standing water, disease, and even turf decline. Aeration encourages water drainage.
Promotes Thicker, Fuller Grass Growth: Overseeding, combined with aeration, is a game-changer when it comes to achieving a thicker and fuller lawn. By spreading these seeds evenly across the freshly aerated soil, we provide an opportunity for new, healthy grass to fill in bare spots, outcompete weeds, and give your lawn a denser appearance.
Suppresses Weeds: A dense and healthy lawn naturally acts as a barrier against weed invasion. When you opt for overseeding, the new grass competes with existing weeds for sunlight, nutrients, and space, effectively suppressing their growth.
Revitalizes Grass Cost-Effectively: By rejuvenating your existing grass instead of starting from scratch, you save money on new sod or extensive renovations. Furthermore, the long-term benefits of a healthy lawn include reduced water consumption, fewer pest problems, and increased property value, making it a wise investment for your home.
