We recommend that aerating be completed in late spring, early summer and/or early fall depending on the grass. Aerating helps promote a healthier growing lawn with a greater drought tolerance. It improves water, oxygen and nutrient flow through soil, and helps to remove thatch, while at the same time encouraging grass to root more deeply.
Lawn rolling is only recommended in particular situations depending on your lawn’s condition, uses and age. Compaction caused by rolling can SOMETIMES cause more harm than good.
Over time your grass dies and begins to accumulate where you can’t see it, resulting in what is called thatch. Usually thatch is broken down naturally and is beneficial to your lawn but sometimes, in specific conditions, it begins to build up forming a barrier preventing moisture and oxygen from getting to the living grass. This results in an unhealthy weak lawn. Aerating helps to remove thatch but sometimes full dethatching is required. Dethatching is the process of using a specialized machine called a “power rake” that combs your lawn and kicks out the debris including the thatch. Once the lawn is combed, the debris and thatch is raked off leaving a dethatched lawn. Dethatching is recommended in late spring/early summer and/or early fall depending on the grass.
Over-seeding / Reseeding is the process of sowing grass seed over an already existing lawn to fill in bare/thin spots, replace dead grass, and create an overall healthier, fuller lawn. Sometimes to properly over-seed / reseed other services are recommended to get the best results, including top dressing. If there are problem areas on your lawn that require over-seeding / reseeding sometimes the problem must first be addressed prior to starting the over-seeding process. We can help you understand the challenges you are facing and recommend the correct solution.
Top dressing is the process of adding soil over top of your existing lawn. Generally top dressing is used to build up your lawn and address holes, low spots, dead patches and uneven conditions. It also helps promote growth especially when using nutrient rich soils. Depending on lawn conditions, top soil is generally used however other nutrients can be added as required. Often top dressing is paired with over-seeding / reseeding especially when repairing a patchy, unhealthy lawn.
