Throughout the year, your lawn becomes compacted from regular use. As this happens, a layer of thatch develops that is made up of a tightly bound layer of dead grass and roots that have built up at the base of your living grass. This thick layer blocks essential elements such as nutrients, water, and oxygen from reaching the roots which prevents your grass from growing. This thick layer also prevents new seeds from taking root in your soil.
Core Aeration and Over Seeding Solutions in Maryland and Virginia
Aeration is a method that is used to compensate for the thatch build up that accumulates throughout the year in Maryland and Northern Virginia. It works by pulling small plugs of soil out of the ground throughout your entire yard. This creates holes in the thatch, allowing the necessary nutrients to reach the roots deep in the soil, helping your grass thrive.
After aeration, we take advantage of these optimal conditions for seed germination. Our technicians will seed your lawn offering the opportunity for the 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.

When should I Aerate?
Aerating and seeding in the fall is the optimal time to ensure maximum effect. Without proper yearly aeration in the Maryland, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area, seeds will take longer to germinate and lead to overall less healthy grass. By aerating in the fall, the seeds you plant will be ready to thrive during the next growing season and produce the lush green lawn you have always wanted. No lawn care service is complete without yearly aeration and seeding.
