Breathe new life into your lawn with professional aeration and seeding.

Core aeration is the process of removing small plugs from your lawn to help break up compacted soil and increase oxygen levels in the root zone.

How it works

A more porous soil allows for better absorption of water, air, fertilizer, and other nutrients which leads to healthier roots and lush turf growth. Our aeration services also helps reduce thatch buildup which can inhibit new growth and seed-to-soil contact for lawns that receive SeedSpark™ seeding services. Core aeration can help alleviate many of the common lawn problems, such as dry patches or moss growth.

How does lawn aeration work?

Aeration involves the use of a motorized machine to create small holes in the lawn. This is done by using hollow tines (also known as penetrators) to penetrate the surface and extract small plugs of soil, which helps to loosen and aerate the soil. This process helps to reduce compaction and increase moisture retention, helping grass roots to penetrate deeper into the soil. Additionally, aeration improves drainage and helps prevent runoff from heavy rains.

How do I get a better lawn?

To get a better lawn, it is important to implement effective weed control, cultural practices and proper fertilization. Weed control usually involves using herbicides or other products to control the growth of weeds. Cultural practices such as mowing, aerating and overseeding can help promote healthy turfgrass growth and reduce weeds. Fertilizing is also important to promote healthy turfgrass growth and keep weeds at bay. Different types of fertilizer should be used depending on the type of grass, soil conditions and climate. It is important to follow directions carefully when using products for weed and pest control. Regular maintenance such as mowing, watering and fertilizing can help keep a lawn healthy and weed-free. By taking these steps, you will be well on your way to having a better lawn.

What does grass need to grow?

Grass needs several necessary elements to grow. It requires healthy, nutrient-rich soil with adequate water and sunlight. Grass also needs macro nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, as well as micro nutrients available to thrive. Proper mowing techniques and other cultural practices can also ensure a healthy, lush lawn. Mowing grass on a regular basis helps it to remain healthy and thick. It also encourages the growth of deeper roots, which can help the grass survive during periods of drought. Finally, a consistent fertilization schedule is important for maintaining a healthy lawn. Fertilizer can provide the grass with extra nutrients that may not be available in the soil. With these elements, grass will be able to grow and flourish.

How do I tell what kind of grass I have?

One of the best ways to tell what kind of grass you have is by inspecting its leaf blades. Different kinds of grass will have different characteristics in the way their leaves look and feel. Look at the growth patterns, does it spread and grow horizontally, like Bermuda grass? Does it grow more in clumps vertically, like Tall Fescure? Sometimes it can be difficult to identify the type of grass you have, so consulting with a local lawn care professional might be necessary. They will be able to identify your grass and inform you of the best ways to take care of it.

your topsoil is critical to the health of your lawn.

This is the most important layer for your lawn. When homes are built the land is graded, which results in the loss of the topsoil layer. Then the property is either seeded or sodded, which means the grass doesn’t have much to work with. Other lawn care companies solve for this by applying a ton of fertilizer and herbicides, at Canopy we focus on restoring your soil so your lawn can be sustainable for years to come.
