Throughout the year, your lawn can become more compacted from regular use, resulting in a layer of tightly bound dead grass and roots, called thatch, to build up at the base of your living grass. This thick layer of thatch can block essential nutrients, water, and oxygen from reaching the roots, resulting in a dying yard. Lawn aeration and seeding are incredibly important to remove the thatch and have a healthy, green lawn.
If you're trying to find answers to common questions like when is the best time to aerate the lawn, or if you're unsure how to choose the best aeration and seeding provider, head over to our lawn care blog or aeration and seeding FAQ to learn more.

Grass roots need air, water, and essential nutrients to grow thick, healthy, and strong. Thatch build-up can hinder this growth. In order to remove thatch build-up, your lawn needs to be aerated. The best time to aerate your lawn depends on your grass type, but typically, we recommend aerating in the fall as there are many more benefits to aerating your lawn in the fall.
When you aerate your lawn traditionally with core aeration, you’re creating small holes down in the soil to alleviate compaction, allowing everything your grass needs to reach the roots.
We also now offer liquid aeration, which has many additional benefits without disturbing the soil and causing potential weed problems.
In Virginia and Maryland, there are several options for when to aerate your lawn. From spring to fall, Blades of Green can provide the guidance you need to ensure you're making the best decision. Traditionally, the best time to aerate cool-season lawns, like lawns made up of tall fescue or Kentucky bluegrass, is usually in late August or mid-September. This is when cooler season grasses are coming out of their dormancy and starting to grow. Don’t know what kind of grass is in your yard? Our pros know!

Your lawn may be compacted if you’ve noticed any of these signs on the lawn.
Are you wondering what you need to do before our lawn technicians arrive for your aeration and seeding service? Here’s everything that you may need to do to ensure you get the most out of your service.
After your lawn has been aerated, it’s time for your lawn seeding service! Aeration will create optimal conditions for seed germination, allowing new roots to reach deep down into the soil and establish a strong root system. These seeds will then transform into a thick layer of turf, which will not only look healthy and green but also prevent weeds from taking hold in your lawn.
Have you noticed with past seeding services that your grass didn’t grow to optimal height? Your lawn may not have been as hydrated as it needs to be! When your lawn isn’t watered as it should be (even missing one day can be detrimental!) it won’t absorb any of the all-natural nutrients our lawn technicians provide during our fall aeration and seeding services. With our Blue Tag Certified, 100% weed-free seeds with SeedBOOST you don't need to worry about missing a day of watering, or less than ideal growing conditions.
The benefits of our Blue Tag Certified, 100% weed-free grass seed with SeedBOOST include:
