What Is Fall Aeration and Overseeding?

Over summer months, dry weather, hot days, heavy foot traffic, and mowing can , causing brown or yellow patches. The ground can get so pushed together that it becomes solid. This is called impaction. Impacted soil blocks out water, air, and nutrients from getting to the roots of your grass. Aeration opens up your soil to let all those good things back in. Here’s how it works. 

  • Professional landscapers in Westchester County, NY, will use an aerator to poke tiny holes in your law. These holes help loosen up the soil and bring water and oxygen deep into the dirt. 
  • The next step is to water the lawn and prep it for new growth. 
  • Once the soil has been prepared, our experts will carefully overseed your lawn. Overseeding simply means putting new seeds over your existing grass. Lawncare experts often use a seeder that will evenly cast seeds all over your lawn. 
  • During fall months, the seeds begin to take root and grow. By the following summer, you’ll have a lush, beautiful lawn that will be the envy of your friends and neighbors.
