Aeration & Seeding Services in Maryland & Northern Virginia

With our lawn aeration and seeding programs in combination with our lawn care services, Blades of Green will get you on your way to a healthier, rejuvenated lawn.

Warning Signs You May Need to Aerate & Seed Your Yard

Is your lawn looking thin or bare in places? What your yard needs is aeration and seeding to help it breathe again and absorb the proper nutrients.

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.

Your lawn may be compacted if you’ve noticed any of these signs on the lawn:

  • Pooling Water
  • Water running off of higher areas quickly
  • Bare areas where grass will not grow
  • Trees with shallow roots
  • Thin areas of grass
Our services transform your colorless, thatch-laden lawn into the lush, green turf that will be turning heads all year long.

A long time customer of Blades of Green Lawn care, Great company very organized and well run. In addition to the great lawn service I have enjoyed over the years, I was contacted by the B.O.G. automated service alerting me of the arrival of the ZIKA mosquitos. I followed their advice and had both of my properties treated! Since the treatment I no longer have to fear getting a little head, or whatever this ZIKA thing causes. Great Job Guys!!- Joe Amato

I have used Blades of Green for almost ten years and my lawn is beautiful! They follow a good business model in that they always call ahead to let me know they are coming, and they give me a full report afterwards. Whenever there are any specific problems or issues with particular weeds or trouble spots, I get an immediate response. They are excellent technicians and always a pleasure to work with. Thank you Blades of Green for being so careful and professional with my precious lawn, trees and shrubs. I use the lawn service as well as pest control and am very happy knowing that my outdoor areas are well cared for.- Sharon Metro

When Should you Aerate Your Lawn?

The best time to aerate your lawn depends on your grass type, but typically, we recommend aerating in the fall.

How to Prepare for Your Lawn Aeration Service

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.

  • Flag sprinkler heads, invisible fences, in-ground lights, and other hard-to-see objects. If you are unable to flag your lawn, please let us know and our crew can assist you with this. 
  • Mow your lawn one to two days before we arrive. This helps to make your aeration and seeding service more effective. 
  • Clean up leaves and debris. 

Water your lawn ONLY if the soil is dry. A quick way to know if the soil is moist enough is to push a screwdriver into the soil. If the screwdriver penetrates easily, it is fine. If it is hard to push in, water about 1″ and test again.

The B.O.G. Difference - Aeration & Seeding Methodology

We have a proven process that’s been developed over the course of more than 30 years of expert lawn care. When you choose Blades of Green, our aeration services include:

  • Double-pass aeration for twice the plugs, allowing more nutrients to reach the roots.
  • Power raking in hard-to-reach areas.
  • Blue Tag Certified, 100% weed-free grass seed featuring our SeedBOOST fertilizer designed to give your lawn the best nutrients possible. 

*Blue Tag Certified seeds are held to rigorous labeling standards. They’re tested and inspected to gain the seal of approval from the state crop improvement association in which the seed is produced.
