With time, the soil beneath your lawn becomes compacted. This compaction limits the flow of air and nutrients to your lawn’s roots. Our Aeration service removes small cores from the soil to reduce compaction and to allow the roots to spread and receive the airflow and nutrients that they require. Aerating will help to build a lawn with a strong root system that is healthy and resistant to drought. Aerating will leave small cores of soil on the surface of the lawn. There is no need to collect the cores, they will break down and return to the soil soon after the service is complete. Aeration is the perfect way to prepare you lawn for topdressing.
Overtime the nutrients in the soil are depleted and your lawn may begin to thin out and become easily affected by diseases and drought. Our Top Dressing service will help to restore important nutrients and microorganisms to the soil so that your lawn will be able to grow thick and lush. A healthy lawn will be better able to resist pests and late summer dry periods. Our team will spread a layer of quality compost and grass seed over your lawn, restoring the nutrients that it needs to stay full and lush all season long. For best results, top dress after a lawn aeration.
