What Is Lawn Aeration?

If you live in a region with a high amount of clay in the soil, soil compaction can be an issue with your residential lawn. Professional lawn aeration services can help eliminate problems related to soil compaction, allowing properties to thrive beautifully. The best time to aerate lawns is typically in the spring, fall, or both depending on your lawn care maintenance needs.Alternative Earthcare  can inspect your property and give you recommendations for a proper lawn aerating schedule.

What Is Over-seeding?

Overseeding is a lawn care practice that helps keep your lawn beautiful, green, and lush year-round. Our team applies grass seed to your entire lawn to improve its overall density and fill in bare spots. The best time of the year to perform overseeding services is spring and fall because the seed will have plenty of time to germinate and become established in the soil. Our overseeding service is most effective when combined with our lawn aeration services because the aeration process provides the seed with perfect conditions to germinate and grow. The lawn care experts at Lawn Pride can help you establish an overseeding and aeration schedule for your residential property.

If you are needing to seed your lawn, it’s crucial to aerate the lawn first to obtain good seed-to-soil contact for optimal germination. Aerating the soil, also allows for good gas exchange between the germinating seeds and the soil. Seeds, just like any other living organism need oxygen and produce carbon dioxide (CO2). If the carbon dioxide is not able to move away from the seed, the seed will suffocate.
