What Are Aeration & Seeding Services?
Aeration and seeding are two distinctly separate, but very closely related and mutually beneficial services. When these are sought in tandem, you are left with a richer, healthier lawn that displays optimal growth and a uniform and appealing appearance.
Aeration in Northern Virginia
Aeration seeks to mitigate compaction, the action of your soil becoming more dense as it settles and is in use. This is key to a healthy lawn because compacted soil makes it harder for healthy grass and other plants to take root and grow properly. Compacted soil also reduces healthy moisture penetration, robbing your grass and plants of critically important water.
Methods of aeration vary a bit here and there, but overall the process involves creating a number of small, inconspicuous holes of a certain minor depth—far enough to penetrate soil. These small holes reduce compaction and the resulting bits of “spent” soil assist in vigorous and healthy grass growth.
Seeding in Northern Virginia
Seeding is exactly what it sounds like. The use of grass seed to “overseed” lawns helps to cultivate healthy, optimal grass breeds that will grow well and beautifully within your lawn. Seeding is best done in conjunction with aeration, as the action of aerating generates optimal conditions for grass growth. When done together, these two services will create the gorgeous, lush, and healthy looking home every homeowner yearns for!
The Benefits of Aeration & Seeding
Put simply, these lawn care services will improve your landscape by:
- Reduced compaction. Compaction occurs in many ways; over time, when we walk on our lawn and naturally when it rains. Left alone too long, compaction is why many lawns end up stubborn and devoid of life. The soil is simply too dense for healthy growth!
- No thin patches. Aeration already helps to reduce the problems of patchy, weak growth. But in conjunction with seeding, you’re left with a full, even, and beautiful lawn growth that will maintain all season long.
- Healthier water behavior. Since aeration allows for more normal water penetration in your soil, it can do two important things for your lawn. One, it reduces the amount of required maintenance by keeping your lawn more naturally hydrated. Two, it reduces the risk of awkward and harmful water runoff—a common issue with excessively compacted soil.
- Less weeds and ugly growth. Seeding ensures that the breeds of grass you are growing are the optimal and most attractive choices for your unique landscape and area. This also helps avoid unsightly and unappealing weed growth in the lawn, reducing the frustration of rampant and unchecked growths.
