Lawn Aeration and Overseeding
Want to ensure you keep a healthy and beautiful lawn? You need to consider 4 Seasons Services in Akron Ohio for core aeration service.
Our equipment pulls plugs from your lawn to alleviate soil compaction. Where some aerators just put holes in the ground, which creates further compaction.
Aeration that removes compaction from the soil allows water, air, nutrients, and fertilizer to have optimal success in your lawn. Core aeration will ensure a healthier and greener lawn.
Thatch is natural and when it is kept under control, it’s a very beneficial part of your lawn. Thatch is the layer of organic matter made up of dead and living lawn debris, blades and roots that builds up on any well-maintained lawn. A small amount of thatch is a natural part of a growing healthy lawn. When thatch gets over one-half inch thick it becomes a problem. Heavy thatch harbors insects and breeds disease.
Lawn aeration removes thousands of plugs of soil and deposits them back above the thatch. These plugs will “melt” back into the lawn and mix with the thatch. This speeds up the process of thatch decomposition, and keeps thatch under control. A heavy thatch layer can contribute to insects, lawn diseases or drought damage. With regular aeration, thatch can be kept under control and not a threat to your lawn. Many soils become hard or compacted over time. The small and tightly packed soil particles do not have the space between them for water, air and roots.
Core aeration lets the soil expand, and the space between soil particles is dramatically increased. Lawn roots, water and air can penetrate deeper in looser, more open soil. With regular core aeration, the soil becomes “softer” and your lawn is healthier, thicker and more appealing as a result.
Lawn aeration in Akron OH works with or without seed. Golf courses aerate many times a year without seed. They aerate so often because they know the huge benefit of aeration and is the main reason their grass is so healthy and so aesthetically appealing.
How do you achieve a lawn which is dense, lush and visually appealing? The answer is overseeding – the practice of sowing additional seed over existing grass to boost and restore your lawn.
Overseeding is a great practice is because over time, the individual grass blades on your lawn weaken and die with age. Making your lawn vulnerable to disease, insects and weeds. Areas in your lawn which have damaged from from extreme temperatures or heavy foot traffic also benefit from overseeding. It helps re-establish a strong foundation and improves the overall health and appearance of your lawn. Once the lawn is aerated, the seed should be applied as evenly as possible.
