Aeration and Seed
Moffett Landscaping recommends aeration and over seeding in the fall. Grass grows and develops best in the cool months. Aerating and seeding is typically done in September and October. This gives the grass plenty of time to germinate and develop prior to going dormant in the winter.
Aeration removes small cores of soil and thatch to allow air, moisture, and nutrients to penetrate down to the root. Then we over seed the lawn.
Why you should aerate?
Aerating keeps your lawn healthy. It removes 50% of thatch; provides root zone with oxygen, stimulates root growth and fertilizer absorption rate, increases the strength of the turf and its disease tolerance, improves fertilizer and nutrient intake and helps defend your lawn against drought and weeds.
