Lawn Aeration & Seeding
The most beautiful lawns you see are ones that are most likely aerated (and for cool-season lawns, also seeded in the fall). For many soil types, compaction is a problem that prevents oxygen, water, and nutrients from reaching your grass’s roots. This causes shallow roots and makes grass more susceptible to drought, heat, and disease stress.
If you’re meticulously caring for your lawn but are still not seeing the results you want, it may be that the nutrients simply can’t reach the roots to do their job. Nature’s Select aeration service could be the answer. Call (888) 786-9735 for information on our Select Lawn Care programs, or request a free estimate now.
What is Aeration and Overseeding?
Foot traffic, regular mowing, and even rainfall are constantly compacting your soil. Our aeration service involves removing small plugs of grass and soil throughout the lawn, which opens up space for oxygen, nutrients, and water to more deeply penetrate the lawn and reach the roots. This service is most effective when grass is actively growing, usually spring and/or fall for cool- season lawns, and summer for warm-season lawns.
Overseeding is the process of seeding the bare spots of an already established lawn in order to fill it in or to add healthier varieties of grasses to the mix. The combination of aeration and overseeding gives a healthy boost to your lawn.Free Estimate
For cool-season grasses, both fall aeration and spring aeration help break up compacted soil, enable better oxygen, and facilitate water penetration to the roots, as well as help to develop a rich topsoil. Your grass will have greater nutrient uptake giving you better and deeper root growth.
Spring & Summer
Spring and summer aeration services prepare your lawn to respond better to spring and summer nutrient applications and to absorb summer irrigation and rainfall with less runoff or puddling. Root growth is also improved.
Fall aeration helps existing grass improve root systems and nutrient uptake and benefits any seeding done in fall. The healthier root system and nutrient uptake facilitates winter survival and improves appearance.
Fall seeding is required to maintain dense, healthy strands of grass in cool-season lawns. The average life cycle of fescue is about three years, and every year, the normal fescue lawn loses about one-third of its grass to age; it only makes sense to replace what’s lost.
