Over time, the soil in your lawn becomes compacted. Water, air, and nutrients cannot flow to your lawn’s roots in this compacted soil, which stunts its growth and health. This causes malnourishment, thinning and brown patches in the lawn.
Aeration is a process that de-compacts the soil, allowing water, air, andnutrients to once again cycle through to the lawn’s roots. Overseeding can then fill in the thinner spots in your lawn, giving you thicker turf. This process, in tandem, gives your lawn that coveted “golf course” look.
Using the latest technology, we operate a machine that pulls up small plugs of dirt and redistributes them over the lawn. Pulling up these plugs allows the soil to spread out and de-compact, promoting the flow of nutrition to the roots.

As the name suggest, Overseeding is the process of putting an abundance of new grass seed into your lawn’s soil, thickening the turf. This can help fill in brown patches, shaded areas, and thin spots in the lawn. Generally recommended after the core aeration process, as the open soil is ideal for new seed.
PLANT GROWTH REGULATOR (PGR)
Plant Growth Regulator will help reduce the amount of time you spend mowing your lawn while increasing the color and thickness. When applied to an actively growing lawn a PGR will reduce the growth of your lawn, make your grass a darker green, and help with seasonal stresses like heat or disease to give you a more beautiful and manageable lawn.
How do I know if my lawn needs to be aerated?
First and foremost, the most telling sign that your lawn needs aerated are patchy brown spots in the soil, or even just a yellowed “old” look. This indicates that the turf is not getting the proper nutrition that it requires to prosper.
Dry grass is another sign. Compacted soil doesn’t do a good job of absorbing water, so rainfall runs off instead. This causes the grass to dry faster after a rain.
The Shovel Test – Find an area of your lawn you don’t mind digging into, and try to push a shovel into it. If it’s difficult to do (or more difficult than it should be), then the soil is compacted and needs to be aerated. Of course, this only shows if that specific area is compacted, so don’t do it too far from where you suspect there may be a problem.
