Grass roots need air. Aeration creates holes to alleviate compaction. Deprived of this basic need, lawns struggle in color and health.
The majority of root growth occurs in the Fall. Therefore; the Fall is the best time to aerate a lawn. A deeper root system will help against Winter, drought and disease stress and overall health. In addition; it will increase water & nutrient efficiency. It is by far one of the best services for your lawn.
The U-Mass Extension Service also recommends annual aeration.
Dethatching & aerating are two different tasks, but often go hand and hand. Thatch is layer of dead stems above the soil. Aeration helps penetrate and reduce thatch builds up.
Fall is also the best time to plant new grass. Aerating with over-seeding is a great way to thicken your lawn. We offer optional over-seeding with this service. We recommend seeding no later than Oct 15th, if possible. Slice-seeding for very bare areas is also available. If you need seeding, now is the time, not Spring.
Oxygen Is A Key Nutrient For Maintaining Plant Health. Luckily, Mother Nature Offers It Free, But Your Lawn Needs Your Help Supplying It To The Roots.
AERATION SERVICES ARE SCHEDULED BETWEEN AUGUST – NOVEMBER
Organic programs with built in aeration & over-seeding do not apply.
