Aeration and Overseeding
Cool Season Aeration and Overseeding
Aeration: Healthy roots mean healthy lawns
Aeration relieves soil compaction that occurs naturally or from normal foot traffic. Aeration pulls plugs from the soil alleviating compaction allowing oxygen, water and fertilizer to get to the roots. Hot summers, disease and drought take a toll on Fescue lawns fall aeration is an important part of the repair process.
Over-seeding occurs in the fall for Fescue lawns and is done right after aeration. Aeration and over-seeding is often overlooked, but it is the first step and the most important part of the lawn care process. A thick, weed free lawn starts with aeration and over-seeding every fall.

Warm Season Aeration
Bermuda, zoysia, centipede, and St. Augustine are warm season lawns. These lawns require core aeration to relieve compaction, and allow air and nutrients to get to the root zone. This is often considered one of the best investments to your lawn. Aeration usually occurs in the spring time, when the turf has transitioned out of dormancy, and has greened up. Aeration is performed on golf courses and athletic fields several times a year. Home owners with warm season lawns should aerate in the spring. Warm season grasses are rhizomatic plants. These plants grow horizontally under or along the ground sending out shoots and roots. Core aeration creates better conditions that allow these new roots and shoots to develop into new plants. Core aeration disturbs the soil and breaks the plant up. This action stimulates the plant and cause it to grow. Your lawn will be thicker and greener as a result. This sets the stage for the rest of the season.
