Create a Beautiful Lawn with Fall Aeration and Over-Seeding
The experts at Landwork Contractors are here to turn your dry brittle lawn into a lush carpet of green grass. Fall aeration and over-seeding plans can renew your lawn after the dry, hot weather of summer. You can use the same secret techniques golf pros have known about for years, by simply adding a little oxygen and new seeds to your lawn.
Why Does My Lawn Need Aeration?
As your lawn grows during the summer, it creates a layer of dead grass. Pieces of your grass will die off and create a layer called thatch. In small amounts, thatch can protect your lawn. However thick layers of thatch will shut our water and sunlight while choking your lawn. The soil will lose nutrients and much-needed oxygen.
At the same time thatch is growing on the surface, your soil can become impacted. Well-loved lawns are stepped on over and over again. The soil gets packed tightly together, leaving no room for nutrients, oxygen, or water to get down to the roots of your grass. Add to that a heavy layer of thatch and you have the perfect recipe for a dry, brittle, ugly lawn.
Signs Your Lawn Might Need Aeration
- Heavy Foot Traffic
- Bare Patches In Your Lawn
- A Layer of Thick Thatch
- Hard to Dig Areas
- Puddles of Water After the Rain
- Increase in Weeds
Fight Lack Luster Lawns with the One-Two Punch of Aeration and Over-Seeding
The best way to beat the effects of a dry impacted lawn is through the two-step process of aeration and over-seeding. Professional landscapers can properly aerate and seed your lawn to refresh grass and soil.
Aeration is the process of pulling out little holes of soil in your lawn. Our expert lawn maintenance team carefully takes tiny pieces of soil out of your grass to help relieve the impacted areas and remove thatch.
After aeration, your trusted landscaper will add new growth by over-seeding your lawn. Over-seeding is the process of dispersing new seeds evenly over your lawn. The new seeds fall down into the freshly aerated soil, creating new grass. This process should be done every fall, before the soil gets too cold for seeds to take root.

- More Microorganisms That Eat Thatch
- Fewer Weeds
- Increases Resistance to Pests
- Stronger Roots to Withstand Hot Summers
- Fewer Diseases
- Seeds Take Root Before Winter Hits
- Thicker, Healthier Looking Lawns
