Aeration and Over-seeding You Lawn
We all love the idea of having an attractive lawn. You see how lush and green the grass can be on well manicured properties all around the Greater Syracuse area, and you imagine that look on your lawn, and how great it would be if you could have that same look on your property.
But the truth is that there is more to lawns than meets the eye. While many people focus on proper watering and mowing techniques, there is a secret that the golf courses and mansions use to ensure a healthy looking landscape:
- Lawn Aeration
These two lawn care techniques are highly valuable for creating a lush, green lawn, and are often the secret to crafting these lawns throughout New York.
What is Lawn Aeration?
Lawn aeration is the act of poking small holes in the lawn using special tools. These holes help to loosen the soil, improve airflow, and help the roots grow deeper and stronger into the ground so that they can withstand more pressure, prevent lawn disease, and so much more.
What is Over-seeding?
Once the holes are poked in the lawn, over-seeding allows your lawn to grow a deep, thick thatch that ensures there are no open spots for weeds and other invaders to enter your lawn. With the combination of lawn aeration and over-seeding, you have more grass blades growing deeper into the soil and creating stronger and more efficient roots.
All of these techniques help create a deep, green lawn that will make your landscape the envy of the block, especially if they are combined with fertilization and proper mowing and lawn care techniques.
