Lawn Renovation-New life starts now!

Posted 9/7/2012

Is your lawn getting thin, turning brown or developing spots that just don’t look as good as they should?  Hot, dry weather hurts your lawn and this summer has been hotter and drier than most.  Your lawn may need more than the regular care because of the heat – it may need help being brought back to life.


All lawns, regardless of their condition, can benefit from some level of renovation every year or so.  One of the best means of rejuvenating turf is to combine the power of aeration with overseeding.

During aeration, a machine known as a core aerator pulls plugs of soil and thatch up from the lawn to break up compacted soil and create more room for air, water and fertilizer to reach the roots.  This results in expansion of the root system for thicker, healthier grass.  Aeration also helps to break up thatch, which can prevent water and fertilizer from reaching the soil if it gets too thick.

Following up aeration with overseeding is a great way to thicken up a thin lawn and add a hardier, more drought-resistant grass variety to your property.  Good seed-to-soil contact is essential for seeding success, and the new grass seed will have an easier time growing in the holes left behind by aeration. 

For more information on lawn renovation, or to schedule your aeration and/or overseeding, give us a call today at 715.839.8484!
