Core Aeration, Dethatching, Grub Control

Core Aeration is the process of removing hundreds of small plugs of soil from your lawn. Removing plugs from a lawn allows air, water and nutrients into the root zone. Grass that is growing in extremely compacted soil will grow very slowly and does not thicken.

Benefits of Core Aeration

  • Enhanced soil water uptake
  • Improved fertilizer uptake and use
  • Reduced water runoff and puddling
  • Improved turf grass rooting
  • Reduced soil compaction
  • Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance
  • Improved resiliency and cushioning
  • Enhanced thatch breakdown

Combining the two treatments, core aeration and overseeding, is a popular fall option. Seeds that have settled into aeration holes have a better chance of germination.

Dethatching is the process used to remove the excess thatch. It is best to dethatch the varieties of grass grown in our area in early fall.

What Is Thatch? Thatch looks like a layer of brown, matted grass and often is mistaken for an accumulation of grass clippings. However, thatch is the layer of rhizomes, crowns and stems left behind from dead grass.

Having some thatch on your lawn is good, too much is bad. If your lawn has more than 1/2 an inch of thatch, dethatching will allow more water, fertilizer and air to reach the soil and grass roots, resulting in a healthier lawn.

Grub Control is very important since grubs are one of the most destructive turf insects in our area. We can apply a safe, preventative treatment in to insure a grub free lawn.
