Aerating, or core aerating, is the perfect way to reduce compaction in your lawn while increasing the efficiency in which other nutrients and oxygen interact with your lawn's root system. As you can see in the photo above, this lawn is kind of "patchy." Aerating and distributing new seed will help fill in the clumpy areas of this and many other lawns.
Aerating in the fall creates a great opportunity for establishing new seed too. Overseeding as the cores or plugs removed by mechanical aeration increases the seed to soil contact, an important component to ensuring your seed a higher chance of germinating. Whether it's Bluegrass seed or Fescue seed, we can tailor overseeding to your property's needs.
We'd say at the "Core" of a good Lawn Care Program is a plan to Turf Build. Turf Building on an annual basis is a great way to keep your lawn healthy and thick year after year. New varieties of seed will help fight against disease! New seed also helps to heal stressed and thin areas that may have been attacked through summer heat or excess traffic, be it foot or hoof.
The Twin Creeks Landscape Group is now enrolling and scheduling Turf Building Programs across the Platte County area. Sign up now as spots are limited. And don't forget, the best way to keep weeds out of your lawn is to have a good thick-healthy stand of turf grass.
