Aeration & Overseeding

Along with fertilizing and consistent watering techniques, core aeration and overseeding are vital practices to maintaining overall turf health. What is Aeration? Aeration is the removal of small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve air, water and nutrient exchange within the soil.  Clay and compacted soil restrict oxygen supply, thus inhibiting proper root growth.  Aeration allow air into the soil combating such problems as compaction, thatch, clay soils, and heavy traffic. This promotes a healthier roots system which in turn creates a healthier, thicker lawn

There are numerous benefits to Aeration, including:

  • Increased water and nutrient consumption

  • Increased root development

  • Improved soil compaction

  • Increased pass-through of thatch layer

  • Increased turf density

  • Increased weed suppression

  • Increased heat and drought tolerance
