Lawn aeration, also called plug aeration or core aeration, is the process by which thousands of small cores of soil 1” to 3” in length are removed from your lawn. These cores naturally decompose and “melt” back into the lawn. The holes created by aeration catch water and fertilizer and help relieve some of the pressure from compacted soils. Core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn.
Why is Aeration necessary?
Upon completion of aeration we highly recommend an over-seeding process. When we over-seed your lawn, we can help fill in the bare spots and thin areas by planting grass seed directly into the existing lawn, without tearing up your lawn or the soil. It is an easy way to improve the density of your lawn, establish improved grass varieties and enhance your lawns colour. Over-seeding aids in making your lawn more resistant to common insects and diseases.
Benefits of over-seeding include:
Combining these two incredibly beneficial services gives you all the benefits of both services and makes the over-seeding much more effective. The homes left by core aeration mean better seed-to-soil contact, which means a higher germination rate and the thicker, healthier lawn you’ve been dreaming of giving your home extraordinary curb appeal!
