Once we determine your lawn’s problems, we create the ideal solutions and treatment for lawn renovation to restore your lawn to its full potential. Extensive thatch accumulation can deteriorate your lawn’s health and appearance. Proper preventive maintenance, such as thatching or aeration along with over seeding, can enhance lawn growth and allow root development for a healthy turf.
We provide lawn renovation solutions including soil preparation, aeration, seeding or sod installation, and more. Let us help you get your lawn to look its best.
Aeration is extremely important if the lawn:
Aeration can be extremely important to ensure a healthy lawn because it alleviates soil compaction or excess thatch and allows oxygen, water, and nutrients to penetrate the roots.
The most common reason for aerating is to reduce soil compaction which prevents the proper circulation of air, water and nutrients in the soil. If there is excess thatch, roots can be starved of these necessary elements.
Aerating will aid in deeper growing roots and allow for a stronger grass that will grow thicker and greener on the surface. Grasses with deep root growth are far more drought tolerant so less watering will be required.
When to aerate the lawn depends upon the type of grass you have and when it begins the period of most active growth.Cool season grasses such as fine fescues, ryegrasses, and Kentucky Bluegrasses should be aerated in early fall or early spring. Warm season grasses such as Zoysia and Bermuda Grass should be aerated in the late spring.
Aerating should be done prior to fertilizing or reseeding and when the soil is moist, never during a period of drought or extreme heat.
Timing is important when it comes to lawn seeding. The most ideal conditions for turf grass establishment are during the late summer and early fall season. Cooler temperatures help to keep seed from drying out, yet offer enough rain to help them germinate.
Cool evenings and moderate daytime temperatures, along with anticipated seasonal precipitation are great for rapid grass seed germination. Seeding during the fall gives the grass adequate growth time prior to the winter. There is less competition for weeds, such as crabgrass that tend to die off during this time.
The condition of your soil should be at its best for germination. Before seeding or sodding it’s important to amend poor soils, such as heavy clay, by adding organic matter. This includes compost material and quality topsoil.
Organic matter contains micro-organisms that work together with the roots of plants to absorb the nutrients in the soil. These materials should be tilled into the existing soil rather than spread on the surface. The goal is to have 5 to 6 inches or more of well-prepared soil.
