Aeration is the removal of small cores of soil to allow air, moisture and fertilizer down to the root zone of your lawn.
Compacted soil and thatch are the two biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate fertilization, water and tender loving care! Core Aeration opens up the thatch and helps relieve compaction. It should be a regular part of your annual lawn maintenance program.
Additional Recommendations For A Thicker, Greener & Healthier Looking Lawn.
We also recommend applying Grass Seed, Starter Fertilizer & Moisture Manager with a rotary spreader after the Core Aeration. When applying seed to the lawn, we follow the seed manufacturer's directions for seed application rates. As a rule of thumb, we apply 2 to 3 pounds of seed per 1000 square feet of lawn. Water the new seed 1 to 2 times a day if needed to keep the area moist for the first 10 to 14 days to promote proper ermination. When seed sprouts emerge, water once a day to keep the ground moist. Continue watering for 3 to 4 weeks, more if needed.
