Aerating and seeding is an essential part of achieving and maintaining a thick and healthy lawn. Yard aeration reduces soil compaction, allowing oxygen and nutrients to reach the root system while promoting the flow of water. Overseeding fills in stressed areas and improves density.
Consider Core Aeration & Seeding if:
- Your lawn is compacted
- Irrigation is needed more than usual
- The lawn doesn’t respond well to fertilization
Fall is the best time to seed and repair summer stress. We use a Certified Tall Fescue seed that is top rated as a Category I by the Virginia Cooperative Extension. Our blends are the key ingredients to provide the best results possible for your lawn.
