Aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve soil aeration. Aeration before an application of fertilizer will allow nutrients easier access to root systems.

Thatching / Power-raking
Power-raking removes dead tangled grass and moss from your lawn, allows air and moisture access to the ground and the lawn root zone. It also decreases watering requirements as well as increases disease resistance.

Power-raking can be done in the spring or fall. When power raking to remove winter debris, it is recommended to do it before the lawn starts growing to avoid setting the lawn back during the critical spring time growth. If power-raking is being combined with over-seeding, we recommend doing it in early spring to allow the new seedlings plenty of time to get established before the summer drought and heat.

Over-seeding and topdressing
Over-seeding compensates for that natural slow down of the turf’s reproduction. There are two major benefits to over-seeding every three or four years. First, you insure your lawn stays thick and dense, or if it has thinned, you will make it thick again. Thick grass has few if any weeds if it is mowed over 3 inches tall. The second benefit is disease resistance. The new varieties of seed you sow this year will have better disease resistance than those varieties already in your lawn.
