Aeration & Seeding Services

Our core aeration removes the thatch and gets oxygen and nutrients to the roots so they grow deeper. This strengthens your lawn making it rich, fuller and thicker. We can also seed your lawn and will discuss options about local grasses that work well in our area.

Fall is the best time for aeration and seeding particularly September and October. So avoid disease, parched roots, and a dull yard by having proper aeration and seeding for a happy lawn!

Lawn Aeration Benefits


Aeration is the process of making holes or plugs, called “cores,” with a core aerator machine. This allows more oxygen, water and nutrients to reach the grass root zone. Alleviating the compacted soil and lawn growth helps in stressful situations such as drought or high heat.

Grasses will die out completely without the proper oxygen, water and nutrients. Regular lawn maintenance and focus to the condition of your soil and grass goes a long way in creating a happy and healthy lawn.

Seeding (Overseeding)

When most refer to aerating and seeding a lawn, they are talking about overseeding. Overseeding is the process of planting grass seed into an existing lawn. It is done to improve the density of the lawn, further establish a certain grass variety, fill in bare spots and improve overall appearance.

There is an ideal timing associated with when best to seed after aeration. If you are looking at a bare or thinned out yard, your lawn may benefit from some overseeding efforts.

Fall Aeration

Fall is the best time for aeration and seeding particularly September and October. Aerating in the fall prepares your grass for the spring growth spurt. This is the best time of the year because aerating during spring can help weeds to germinate, and during fall the weed growth will be minimal.

If you miss fall aeration, spring is another great time to aerate.
