AERATION AND OVER-SEED
Improve the quality of your lawn with this simple procedure.
Aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration. It’s commonly called “core aeration” in the lawn service industry.
Core aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements through these means:
- Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.
- Enhanced soil water uptake.
- Improved fertilizer uptake and use.
- Reduced water runoff and puddling.
- Stronger turf grass roots.
- Reduced soil compaction.
- Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
- Improved resiliency and cushioning.
- Enhanced thatch breakdown.
Seeding after Aeration will help keep your lawn thick and lush.

*a note from Vic –We’ve had a fairly wet summer with periods of dryness. What does this mean to the health of your lawn and plants? Hopefully your plants and lawn have done well with the intermittent rainfalls keeping roots happy and promoting growth. We have been seeing however, more than the usual amount of disease and fungus in the form of red thread, leaf spot, black spot, etc. As we get moist, warm nights, disease can easily spread and cause unsightly blemishes on your lawn and on the leaves of your plants. Most plants and lawns do recover but you may see some die back in patches. Fungicides can be used as a preventative measure but unless you are applying before you see damage, this may only stop the spread of the disease but the damage will remain. Fall is a great time to start planning for any lawn seeding. Aeration before seeding allows for better soil contact and the cooler nights encourages seed germination. Watering after over-seeding will help with germination. If you do have disease in your plants, prune out infected areas and wash your blade with alcohol after each cut. This will prevent further spread of the disease from branch to branch.
