Aeration and overseeding are two separate services, but for best results they should be done together.
What Is Aeration?
Aeration is done to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water, and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from essential elements. We use a plug aerator tool, which removes small plugs of soil throughout the lawn to create space within the soil. We strongly recommend this service to all mowing clients as it promotes a healthier, tougher lawn the following year.
What Is Overseeding?
Overseeding works in conjunction with aeration and involves spreading grass seed throughout the yard to encourage new grass growth. Overseeding fills in any patchy areas and creates a lush, green lawn. For best results, schedule this after an aeration service.
A Few Words About Thatch
Thatch layers in your lawn block water and fertilizer from reaching the roots. Roots also get trapped in thatch, where they're vulnerable to heat, drought, and stress. Water from irrigation can accumulate in the thatch layer, too, so grass roots may suffocate from lack of air. Finally, thick thatch also provides a breeding ground for lawn disease and insect pests. We recommend our dethatching service in spring to prep the lawn before overseeding and aeration. We can often break up thatch with a metal rake. Rest assured, our service includes collection & disposal of thatch debris.
