Core Aeration is a process that mechanically removes plugs of
soil and deposits them on the top of the soil surface.
As these cores break down, the surrounding soil, now relieved of compaction and oxygenated, will fill in the holes. At this time, it is most beneficial to overseed your lawn with the most desirable blends of turfgrass.
Newer varieties of seed are proven to have higher resistance to disease, greater ability to withstand drought, and in many cases, better appearance than older cultivars. Low fertility, combined with summer stresses, diseases, and compaction dampen the ability of turfgrass to naturally “fill in” or thicken. These stresses create many bare areas; some very small and some quite large.
The overseeding process thickens the lawn by placing new seeds, and ultimately new grass plants, into these bare areas.
