Aeration and Seeding in Alexandria
Have you noticed the consequences of extreme temperatures and heavy foot traffic on your grass? If you’ve noticed bare areas, you may need to aerate and reseed your lawn. With the help from our technicians, your turf will be able to breathe and take in nutrients again. Here’s what else our services can do for you:
- Fill in thin spots of your grass.
- Break up built-up thatch.
- Prevent weeds and disease, naturally.
- Leave you with a greener and more full lawn!
Our process involves pulling small plugs of soil from your lawn so nutrients are better able to reach the roots. We then apply seeds on top of this so they’re able to establish themselves deep in the soil. This solution not only fills in the thin spots but also naturally prevents diseases and weeds.
