Aerating and over-seeding cool season lawns is a critical practice in establishing and maintaining a beautiful, thick, weed-free lawn. Core aeration loosens compacted soil, which allows airflow and water infiltration into the soil profile, and in turn encourages deeper, healthier roots.

Is this service for both warm season and cool season grass?
This service is only for cool season fescue lawns, as it includes over-seeding with fescue grass seed.
Why is this service scheduled during the fall season?
Temperatures are optimal in the autumn months for seed germination and establishment. The intense summer temperatures have passed, there is less competition from annual grassy weeds such as crabgrass, and soil temperatures are warm enough for continued growth of the grass. In preparation for winter, grasses begin to store nutrients that will not only allow them to survive the cold winter months, but enable them to develop a healthy root system to support new shoot growth once the temperatures resume in the spring.
This service is for cool season lawns. If you have a warm season lawn, you do not need this service.
Soil plugs will remain on top of your lawn areas. It usually takes around two weeks for the cores to break down. It can, however, be longer or shorter depending on weather conditions.
The aerator tines penetrate several inches into the soil. We recommend marking all utilities prior to the service schedule to prevent any damage to underground utilities, invisible dog fence, low-voltage lighting wire, or irrigation components during aeration.
The newly seeded lawn will require water and care after the completion of aeration and over-seeding to allow the seeds germinate and establish.
Seed may get washed out during heavy rains, specifically on steep slopes.
This Service Does Not Include:
Fertilizer or a lime application. (These turf treatments can be scheduled through the Fertilization and Weed Control service)
Watering in newly broadcasted seed.
Removing plugs in lawn areas. We recommend against raking or picking up the cores as this will reduce the effectiveness of the aeration.
