Aeration is a process that mechanically removes plugs of soil and deposits them on the top of the soil surface. As these cores break down, the surrounding soil, now relieved of compaction, the oxygen will fill in the holes. At this time, it is most beneficial to overseed your lawn with the most desirable blends of turf grass. Newer varieties of seed are proven to have higher resistance to disease, greater ability to withstand drought, and in many cases, better appearance than older cultivars.
- Maintains the healthy, thick appearance of your lawn
- Reduces soil compaction for better growth
- Helps keep thatch under control
- Less insect and disease activity
Low fertility, combined with summer stresses, diseases and compaction dampens the ability of turf grass to naturally ‘fill-in’ or thicken your lawn. These stresses create many bare areas, some very small and some quite large. The overseeding process thickens the lawn by placing new seed, and ultimately new grass plants, into these bare areas.
