Why Aerate Your Yard?
Lawn aeration and overseeding bring many positive benefits to your lawn. Aeration is the process of removing small plugs of grass and soil from the ground, creating new air spaces in the lawn and allowing nutrients to absorb closer to the root, thereby strengthening the root system.
Lawn aeration also helps to decrease the build-up of thatch.
Aerating your lawn in the fall allows oxygen, fertilizers, and pesticides to penetrate into the root system, making it stronger and more resistant to the unpredictable weather of the Midwest. Lawn Aeration gives an excellent opportunity for lawn seeding. Following lawn aeration, lawn seeding helps thicken up the turf layer and reduce weed growth.
Thatch is a build-up of dead grass or grass clippings at the base of your lawn. Our process utilizes a machine that pulls up the dead grass from the yard. We then rake up all of the debris from the lawn and run mowers in the yard bagging up anything that didn't get raked up. This helps your lawn breath and is a great time to overseed for a thicker lawn.
