Benefits of Aeration & Overseeding

Aeration and reseeding are two techniques applied in landscaping to help your lawn stay healthy season by season. It helps it to breathe and absorb proper nutrients and water.

What is Aeration?

As the months go by, your lawn becomes more and more compacted from regular use. What you will see is a pile of dead grass and roots, called thatch. This organic material will build up at the base of your living turfgrass and can block essential nutrients, oxygen, and water from reaching the roots, leading to a dying yard. Don’t let this happen to your grass. Apply aeration to remove the thatch and also improve the structure of the soil.

What is Reseeding?

Reseeding means adding fresh seed to increment the species diversity within the turf, making it more resistant to disease, insect attacks, and other environmental pressure. Plus, as your lawn thickens with new seed growth, it will also be better prepared not to let weeds take over. It will provide you with aesthetically pleasing property.

Aeration and reseeding should be part of regular lawn maintenance tasks, to create a thicker, lush, and healthier lawn. The best time for aerating and overseeding is in the fall for cool-season grasses, such as Kentucky bluegrass and tall fescue, and in the spring or summer for warm-season grasses, such as zoysiagrass and bermudagrass.
