Lawn Aeration & Over-seeding

Professional Lawn Aeration in Servicing all of Suffolk County, Long Island New York

Of all the different things done to build and keep a thick healthy yard, lawn aeration (or core cultivation) is second only to fertilizing. Aeration opens the soil to allow air, water, and fertilizer to reach the root zone of the turf. It also reduces thatch and “softens” the soil. You can think of aeration as the “secret” ingredient that helps make every other lawn care service done on your lawn deliver the best possible results; therefore, to complement our other lawn care services, we offer professional lawn aeration in Servicing all of Suffolk County, Long Island New York

Lawn Aeration Works (with or without Seed)

Aeration is used as an essential part of cultural programs on golf and sports turf around the world. For the same reasons, making lawn aeration in Grand Rapids a part of our annual lawn care program – alone or with seeding – is a highly recommended way to help maintain and improve your lawn.

Keeping Thatch Under Control

Thatch is natural and when it’s kept under control, it’s a beneficial part of your lawn. Thatch is the layer of organic matter made up of dead and living stems, blades, and roots that build up on any well-maintained lawn. A small amount of thatch is a natural part of a growing lawn. But when it gets over one-half inch thick, thatch becomes a problem. Heavy thatch harbors insects and is a breeding place for lawn diseases.

Lawn aeration removes thousands of “plugs” of soil and deposits them above the thatch. These plugs “melt” back into the lawn and mix with the thatch. This speeds up the process of thatch decomposition, and helps keep it under control.

 A heavy thatch layer can contribute to serious insect, lawn disease or drought damage, requiring renovation. With regular aeration, thatch can usually be kept under control and seldom becomes a serious lawn threat.

 Many soils (especially heavy clays) become hard or compacted over time. The small and tightly packed soil particles have little space between them for water, air and roots. Lawn aeration lets the soil expand, and the space between soil particles is increased. Lawn roots, water and air can all penetrate deeper in looser, more open soil. With regular aeration, the soil becomes “softer” and your lawn is healthier and thicker as a result.

10,000 “Growth Zones” for Reseeding Lawn

When aeration cores are pulled, the thatch “barrier” is broken and soil is exposed. This creates an excellent opportunity to further thicken the lawn with over-seeding. 

Whenever your lawn is seeded, it’s important to put the seed in good contact with the soil. By breaking through the thatch, lawn aeration allows grass seed to make good soil contact.

 When seed lodges in the soil from the aeration cores or in the core holes left in the lawn, the rate of germination is much higher and your over-seeding is more successful.
