Aeration & Seeding Services
Aeration is an essential requirement for all healthy lawns. When maintained right, most lawns will only need aeration every other year. Live Lawn and Prosper focuses on one type of aeration…core aeration. This is the most productive and most beneficial for your lawn and has numerous benefits. We make sure to use top-of-the-line equipment that penetrates deep into the soil.
Properly aerated lawns only require half the amount of water
- Help your lawn breathe
Oxygen is essential for your lawn’s growth, this helps maintain the proper oxygen/water ratio
- Reduce water consumption
A properly aerated lawn will only require half the amount of water by reducing runoff and eliminating puddles that cause damage and attract mosquitoes
- Loosen compacted soil
This allows air and water to reach your lawn easier
- Breakdown thatch
Which also aids in improving water and oxygen consumption
- Reduce weeds
By combining with over seeding, you can help your lawn fill in those bare spots with grass…not weeds
- Help maintain stronger roots
Strong roots are the best way to have a lawn that is resilient against summer heat and stress
These are only some of the many great benefits of aerating. It is one of the most cost effective ways to help your lawn. By using core aeration, it also adds a small layer of topdressing to your lawn that breaks down naturally. If you have an uneven or patchy lawn, ask us about pairing a topdressing of soil/compost to help fill in the gaps.
Aeration and seeding can be done two times during the year, spring and fall. If your lawn can wait, we recommend service in the fall. This gives your new grass the most time to establish deep, hearty roots before the stress of summer.
If you have a regular mowing or treatment plan with us we always make sure to coordinate your services so you get all the benefits and the best bang for your buck!
