Is your soil compacted? What will Aeration & Overseeding help with?
- Aeration & Seeding, Aeration creates holes down into the soil to alleviate compaction so air, water and nutrients can reach grass roots.
- Deprived of their basic needs by compacted soil, lawn grasses struggle in stressful situations, such as heat and low rainfall, and lose their healthy, rich color.
- Core aeration loosens the soil, allowing water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots and be absorbed
- Aeration improves seed germination
- Overseeding can introduce new grass seed to fill in bare areas and thicken existing turf
Dethatching at this time?
Over time, little bits and pieces of grass can die and gather just above the soil. This is called thatch. A little bit of thatch can be beneficial. It’s organic material that is broken down by microbes in the soil. But sometimes, thatch builds up too fast for natural processes to break it down. It forms a barrier, keeping moisture and air from going where your grass needs it. A half-inch or more of thatch can weaken your lawn.
At this time in the year it is of benefit to do a thatching as well.
