Lawn Aeration and Overseeding in Richfield & Bath Township OH
Thatch is natural and when it is kept under control, 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 yard. A small amount of thatch is a natural part of a growing healthy lawn in Bath Township & Richfield Ohio. When thatch gets over one-half inch thick it becomes a problem in the lawn. Heavy thatch harbors insects and breeds disease unfortunately.
Our equipment at Akron Canton Lawn Care pulls cores from your lawn to alleviate soil compaction in your lawn. Where some aerators just put holes in the ground, which creates even further compaction. Core aeration that removes compaction from the soil allows water, air, nutrients, and fertilizer to have optimal success in your lawn. Core lawn aeration will ensure a healthier and greener lawn.
What is Core Aeration?
Lawn core aeration removes thousands of plugs of soil and deposits them back above the thatch. The plugs will “melt” back into the lawn and mix with the thatch. This speeds up the process of thatch decomposition, and keeps thatch under control in the turf. Heavy thatch layers can contribute to insects, lawn diseases or drought damage. With regular core aeration, thatch can be kept under control and not a threat to your lawn. Soils become hard and compacted over time. The small and tightly packed soil particles do not have the space between them for water, nutrients, air and roots.
Core aeration lets the soil expand, and the space between soil particles is greatly increased. Lawn roots, nutrients, water and air can penetrate deeper in looser, more open soil. With regular lawn core aeration, the soil becomes “softer” and your lawn is healthier, thicker and more appealing as a result.
Lawn aeration in Richfield & Bath Twp Ohio works with or without seed. Golf courses core aerate many times a year without seed. They aerate so often because they know the great benefit of aeration and is the main reason their grass is so healthy and so aesthetically appealing.
Overseeding in Bath Township & Richfield Ohio with Akron Canton Lawn Care
How do you achieve a lawn which is dense, lush, healthy and visually appealing? The answer is overseeding – the practice of sowing additional grass seed over existing turf to boost and restore your lawn.
Over seeding is a great practice because over time, the individual grass blades on your lawn weaken and die with age. Making your lawn vulnerable to disease, drought, insects and weeds. Areas in your lawn which have damage from extreme temperatures or heavy foot traffic will benefit from overseeding. It will help re-establish a strong foundation and improves the overall health and appearance of your lawn. Once the lawn is core aerated, the seed should be applied as evenly as possible.
