Core Aeration & Overseeding
Provides a total renovation with drought, insect and disease resistant grasses. (Guaranteed for life as long as Gro-Pro maintains the lawn)
Why Aerate? Aeration should be a regular part of your annual lawn maintenance program. Compacted soil and heavy thatch are two of the biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate fertilization and water.
How it’s done… Aeration is accomplished by the use of a machine equipped with cylinder-like spoons designed to penetrate and shatter the soil. Half-inch diameter plugs of thatch and soil are actually pulled from the ground during this process. This allows the grass plants to breathe and promotes deeper, healthier roots. In addition, Gro Pro will add more disease and drought resistant grasses to your lawn by overseeding at the same time. Overseeding right after aeration is highly recommended. The aeration pulls soil up to the surface which increases seed-soil contact and increases germination rates.
Instantly increase oxygen, nutrient and water flow. The holes immediately fill with oxygen, which encourages the roots to rapidly expand and fill the oxygen rich holes. The increased oxygen improves the mobility of nutrients, water and air both within the plant and between the soil and roots.
Control thatch. Aeration helps control thatch build up. It accomplishes this by adding oxygen to the soil which increases the decomposition rate. You can also reduce an existing thatch layer by aerating the lawn twice at right angles every spring and fall.
