Aeration & Seeding

Improving the overall health and appearance of your lawn to rejuvenate and strengthen your turf is our goal. Watch as the turf density is increased — the best defense against weed growth and insect damage.

Aeration is vital when it comes caring for your lawn. Provided in the spring or fall, the soil is aerated to allow moisture, oxygen and nutrients to infiltrate into the root system. Aeration also reduces soil compaction, enhances thatch breakdown and improves water infiltration. This process makes a lawn less susceptible to damage from weeds, drought and disease.

Fall and Spring Are the Best Times to Seed and Aerate Your Lawn

Warm days and cool nights make it best time to prepare your lawn for the summer and winter months. Seeding and aeration provides an extra boost of nutrients that will be stored and used during dormancy. Roots actually continue to grow underground throughout the winter and rely on stored food until spring.
