Lawn Aeration and Overseeding in Copley and Fairlawn OH
Thatch is natural and when it is kept in check, it’s a very beneficial part of your turf. Thatch is the layer of organic matter made up of dead and living lawn organic debris, blades and roots that builds up on any well-maintained lawn no matter what. A small amount of thatch is a natural part of a growing healthy lawn in Fairlawn & Copley Ohio. When thatch gets over one-half inch thick it becomes a problem in your lawn. Heavy thatch harbors insects, blocks nutrients and breeds disease unfortunately.
Our equipment at Akron Canton Lawn Care pulls cores from your lawn to alleviate soil compaction in your yard. Where some aerators just put holes in the ground, which will create even further compaction. Core aeration that removes compaction from the soil allows water, air, nutrients, and fertilizer to have great success in your lawn. Core lawn aeration will ensure a thicker, healthier and greener lawn.
Lawn core aeration removes thousands of cores of soil and deposits them back above the thatch. The plugs will “melt” back into the turf and mix with the thatch. This speeds up the process of thatch decomposition, and keeps thatch under control in the lawn. Heavy thatch can contribute to insects, lawn diseases or drought damage. With regular core aeration, thatch can be kept under control and not be a threat to your lawn. Soil will become hard and compacted over time. The small and tightly packed soil particles in your lawn does not have the space between them for water, nutrients, air and roots.
Core aeration lets the soil expand, and the space between the soil particles is greatly increased. Lawn roots, nutrients, water and air can penetrate deeper in looser, more open soil in your lawn. With regular lawn core aeration, the soil becomes “softer” and your lawn is healthier, thicker and more visually appealing as a result.
Lawn aeration in Fairlawn & Copley Ohio works with or without seed. Golf courses core aerate many times a year with and without seed. They aerate so often because they know the huge benefit of core aeration and is the main reason their grass is so healthy and so aesthetically appealing.
Overseeding in Copley & Fairlawn Ohio with Akron Canton Lawn Care
How do you achieve a lawn which is green, dense, lush, healthy and visually appealing? The answer is overseeding – the practice of sowing additional grass seed over existing grass to boost and restore your lawn.
Overseeding is a great practice because over time, the individual grass blades in your lawn weaken and die with age. Making your lawn vulnerable to disease, drought, insects and weeds. Areas in your lawn which have damaged from from extreme temperatures or heavy foot traffic will greatly benefit from overseeding. It will help re-establish a strong foundation and improves the overall health and appearance of your turf. Once the lawn is core aerated, the seed should be applied as evenly as possible.
