Aeration and Seeding—Just like on golf courses
Core aeration increases the penetration of air, water and nutrients into the roots of your lawn, stimulating new root development, inviting a thicker turf. Core aeration encourages your lawn’s appetite, leading to a robust and healthy lawn. By opening up passage ways of water and air to the root system, core aeration enables your lawn to get the nutrients and water that it needs to stay healthy throughout the growing season. It’s an essential part of any lawn treatment, ensuring a beautiful lawn that the entire neighborhood can enjoy.
Not only will core aeration bring out the essential beauty in your lawn, it’s good at relieving diseases too. Core aeration affects the soil compaction by increasing the decomposition of thatch, reducing habitats for insects and diseases. It works by removing cores of soil and thatch, allowing your lawn to better breathe and absorb the water it needs to be healthy. This encourages conditions that favor microorganisms that can naturally breakdown accumulated thatch.
Core aeration is an ideal method in preparing your lawn for overseeding. Your grass can tire from years of wear, so overseeding becomes necessary to keep your lawn young and healthy. By opening the soil through core aeration, you give new grass a chance to seed and grow, keeping your lawn fresh and green throughout the year. Opening small holes in the soil, core aeration breaks up your soil, increasing its circulation as it grows healthy and thrives.
Spring or fall are the best times of year for core aeration, when the lawn is still actively growing and the soil’s still moist. Your GreenMark Lawn Service Representative can discuss an ideal time to schedule core aeration for your lawn. Call us today. We’ll be happy to help you choose the time that is optimal for your lawn, enabling your lawn.
Rejuvenate Your Grass by Overseeding.
Overseeding is as simple as it sounds, yet it can mean the difference between dry, crabby grass and a vibrant lawn. Too many homeowners overlook the importance of overseeding in healthy lawn treatment. Without new seed to rejuvenate your lawn, your grass will grow old, tired and thin, causing weeds and turf to ravage your lawn.
The older your grass is, the slower it reproduces itself. Overseeding makes your lawn grow thicker and healthier, choking out weeds and diseased grass with new seed. Overseeding is an essential part of any effective lawn service. Enjoy a fresh lawn by seeding frequently.
Overseeding with special pest resistant grass varieties can restore lawns thinned and weakened from a hot summer or drought. The thousands of holes in your lawn from core aeration are ideal seedbeds and protect the grass seed germination, ensuring survival.
The GreenMark Lawn Service custom seed mix offers your lawn improved varieties, giving your lawn the recuperation it needs. These grasses enhance insect and disease resistance, defending your lawn against pests.
