In our last blog post we mentioned several important elements of Fall Landscaping. In this post we’ll take a closer look at why Aeration & Overseeding is one of the most important of those aspects.
Core Aeration & Overseeding is the process of mechanically removing plugs of thatch & soil from the lawn, and applying fresh seed and starter fertilizer. In our last blog we mentioned that Fall is the best season to do annual Aeration & Overseeding. But why?
Here are 7 reasons why:
+ It helps grass repair and recover from summer damage and bare spots
+ Opens the soil up
+ Reduces compaction
+ Improves water filtration
+ Strengthens root growth
+ Controls thatch
+ Promotes healthy turf
It looks something like this graphic:
Proper Aeration & Overseeding can reduce water requirements up to 25% without harming the grass. And Aeration & Overseeding pays for itself within a year’s time in water savings alone! That’s because the water is getting down to the root zone – not getting lost in the thatch layer and evaporating – so it’s more effective and will require less.
Aeration & Overseeding is one of the best things you can do for your lawn.
