Aeration and seeding

A lawn made up with green grass is what nearly every homeowner aspires to have. If you have a goal of thick, lush, green grass, lets talk a little further about additional steps you can take to reach your goal. If your grass is lacking, you might be a candidate for aeration and seeding services.

Core Aeration is a process of poking holes into the ground and removing cores out of the ground. This may seem counter-intuitive, but this process allows extra oxygen, water and other nutrients to penetrate the soil allowing your current grass’s roots to expand and strengthen. When grass roots are deep and expansive, the grass is less susceptible to drought and will grow even thicker and greener on the surface. As we always say, the best way to keep weeds out is by having a good thick stand of grass!

Winkler’s Lawn Care & Landscape always recommends that Seeding is coupled with aeration services. Our Turf Care Team encourages this because new seed will help to thicken existing grass and rejuvenate the old grass with new. Seed is regular re-engineered to have stronger more drought and disease tolerant varieties or blends. A good mix of grass seeds helps play the best defense to drought and disease as some varieties are stronger and less susceptible to harsh conditions.

Starter fertilizer is put down at the same time as the seed. Starter fertilizer is like a multivitamin for grass and grass seed. The fertilizer is nutrient balanced to promote the new seed and designed to promote “top end” and “root” development.

We really can’t stress enough. If you’re making the investment in seed, be sure to water! Winkler’s Lawn Care can program your sprinkler system to better feed your newly seeded lawn.
