The time is now to plan for a greener, healthier lawn this Spring.
Schedule the aeration and overseeding of your home turf today.
Fall is the prime time to aerate and enhance your green
surroundings with quality seed. Our aeration season runs from right
now through the first week of October. Spots are filling up fast.
We’re here to answer your questions:
A: Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted, leaving the subsoil undesirable for healthy lawn growth. Walking, playing, mowing, and watering all compact particles and reduce the air space necessary for root growth. Compaction is greatest in the upper 1 to 1-1⁄2 inches of soil and needs to be relieved by mechanical aeration.
A: The mechanical aeration process plugs 2–3 inch deep, finger size holes into the soil to improve the air, water, and nutrient exchange with your roots.
A: Core Aeration stimulates root growth, improves oxygen content, enhances water uptake, enhances thatch control, reduces compaction, and improves nutrient availability.
A: Lawns can have bare patches or thin turf for any number of reasons: drought, thatch build-up, disease or insect damage to name a few.
When lawn renovation is needed, slit seeding can solve the problem quickly and economically. Slit seeding is done by a machine with slicing knives that cut through the thatch and open a slit 1⁄4-inch into the soil. The hopper then drops the seeds into the slits. This method allows the grass seed to be planted directly into the soil, thus greatly enhancing germination.
Slit Seeding offers the following benefits:
