Lawn Aeration & Seeding Services
One of the best things you can do to promote the overall health, growth, and beauty of your lawn this year is to aerate and overseed, or power seed. If you’ve seen thatch buildup, color changes, or brown/bare spots in your lawn, it’s time to aerate and overseed, or in more severe situations, power seed.
What Is Lawn
Aeration is the process where a machine is utilized to pull small plugs of grass and soil from the ground in a process known as “core aeration”. Aeration relieves soil compaction, which allows for the proper flow of oxygen, water, and other essential nutrients to penetrate deep into the grass’ root system.
Combining aeration and overseeding is extremely beneficial to your lawn. When the appropriate seed blend is spread across your lawn, it will fall into the holes created by aeration. The improved seed-to-soil contact results in a quicker germination rate, resulting in a thicker, healthier lawn you will be proud of.

Does My Lawn Need Aeration and Overseeding?
Aeration and overseeding is most effective if you are looking to maintain a healthy lawn. If your lawn is beginning to thin, or there are weak/bare spots here and there, aeration and overseeding is your solution to fixing these issues. As a general rule of thumb, small, bare areas (less than 4’’) can be fixed with aeration and overseeding. If the bare area is larger than 4’’, power seeding will be much more effective.
What Is Power
Power seeding, also known as “slit” or “slice” seeding, utilizes a state of the art machine to slice into the turf while simultaneously planting new seed. The main element to power seeding is the seed to soil contact, which is essential for germination.

Does My Lawn Need Power Seeding?
If your lawn has a few dead/bare spots here and there, aeration and overseeding is the most effective method. However, if the damage on your lawn is more extensive, those methods won’t cut it, and power seeding will be required.
While aeration and overseeding create and seed in holes 4-6 inches, power seeding creates and seeds in inch and a half grooves. With this targeted approach there is more seed to soil germination, which can fix your entire lawn in the matter of a season. So, if you have a lawn that is thin and weak, power seeding will turn it into that thick, lush, and green lawn your neighbors will be envious of.
