Everyday activities such as mowing, playing, and even watering your lawn compact the soil in your turf area reducing the space for root growth. Aeration relieves the compaction resulting in enhanced water uptake, improved oxygen content, and improved nutrient uptake. This results in stimulated root growth and a healthier lawn.
Looking for a thicker turf?
Broadcast Seeding: Recommended for a general thickening of turf.
Slit Seeding: Recommended for repairing very thin or bare sections of turf.
Five Major Benefits of Aerating a lawn
1) Improving drainage & reduce runoff
2) Reducing soil compaction
3) Controlling thatch development
4) Reducing drought damage
5) Allowing water, air, and nutrients direct access to the root system.
You can lay sod anytime during the growing season, although spring and early autumn are best because cool temperatures combined with occasional rain help sod quickly root.
The Japanese beetle can be a destructive pest of trees, plants, and turf. We saw a lot of grub activity last season and have already been finding grubs this year. Our preventative treatment is the best form of control.
Lawn grubs, often called white grubs, are the immature form of beetles. These white, C-shaped creatures have soft bodies with legs near the head. They feed on grassroots (and organic matter in the soil), causing sections of grass in the lawn to die. Grubs eventually turn into adult beetles and emerge from soil to mate and lay eggs, which hatch into more grubs. Let Seasonal Chores treat your lawn to prevent and eliminate grubs.
