Lawn Aeration

Lawn Aeration is the single most beneficial cultural practice in lawn care and we strongly recommend aerating your lawn annually. The purpose of Lawn Aeration is to cultivate the soil opening holes in it to allow water, air and plant nutrients to penetrate the dirt. Grass roots need air and will grow vigorously following core aeration. This is also the perfect time to overseed the yard, after aerating. The holes creates pockets for the seed to germinate resulting in a more fuller, lush and perfectly kept yard.

Lawn Dethatching

Dethatching otherwise known as “scarifying”. Thatch is basically a layer of living and dead grass shoots, stems, and roots that forms between the green grass blades and the soil surface. Some thatch (1/2 inch or less) is actually beneficial; it acts like mulch to provide insulation from temperature extremes, helps keep moisture in the soil, and provides a protective layer of cushioning. However, when the thatch layer is more than ¾ inch thick, it can lead to increased pest and disease problems , and also reduces the amount of oxygen and moisture that are able to reach the soil and grass roots. When this happens, it’s time to dethatch your lawn. Dethatching removes this thick layer of decaying plant material so air, water, nutrients, and fertilizer can reach the soil better, plus your lawn can drain more effectively. The results are amazing and helps provide for the perfect lawn.
