FALL AERATION & OVERSEEDING
Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted, leaving the subsoil undesirable for healthy lawn growth. Aeration involves pulling small 2-3 inch plugs of soil out of your lawn. This mechanical process breaks up compaction and allows the grass roots to breath, while the holes left by the plugs increase the grass’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, so it grows thicker and stronger. Lawn experts agree that core aeration can help make your lawn healthier by:
- Improving oxygenization
- Enhancing soil water uptake
- Improving fertilizer uptake and use
- Reducing water runoff and puddling
- Facilitating stronger turfgrass roots
- Reducing soil compaction
Fall overseeding is often combined with lawn aeration since seed germination depends upon seed-to-soil contact. The holes in the soil and the soil cores resulting from aeration facilitate this requirement and give new turf seedlings favorable conditions to grow and mature, providing they receive a frequent light watering for a few weeks.
