Aeration and Over-Seeding

Aeration and Over-Seeding

Is your lawn looking thin or bare in places? What your yard needs is Aeration and Over-Seeding to help it breathe again and absorb the proper nutrients. Our services transform your colorless, thatch-laden lawn into the lush, green turf that will be turning heads all year long.

Throughout the year, your lawn can become more compacted from regular use, resulting in a layer of tightly bound dead grass and roots, called thatch, to build up at the base of your living grass. This thick layer of thatch can block essential nutrients, water, and oxygen from reaching the roots, resulting in a thinned and struggling lawn. Aeration and overseeding are incredibly important to help breakdown and maintain a healthy thatch layer and a thick lawn.

How to Prepare for Your Lawn Aeration Service

Are you wondering what you need to do before our lawn technicians arrive for your aeration and seeding service? Here’s everything that you may need to do to ensure you get the most out of your service.

  • Flag sprinkler heads, invisible fences, in-ground lights, and other hard-to-see objects. If you are unable to flag your lawn, please let us know and our crew can assist you with this.
  • Mow your lawn lower than the usual recommendation one to two days before we arrive. This helps to make your aeration and seeding service more effective.
  • Clean up leaves and debris.
  • Water your lawn ONLY if the soil is dry. A quick way to know if the soil is moist enough is to push a screwdriver into the soil. If the screwdriver penetrates easily, it is fine. If it is hard to push in, water about 1″ and test again.

I just got my fall aeration and seeding service…


Newly seeded lawns must be kept moist. That means you must water constantly! If the seed dries out, it will not germinate. Be careful not to overwater as too much water will cause the new seed to drown and rot. If you see mud, you are over watering.

  • Thoroughly water the entire seeded area every day
  • Keep ground moist but not “soggy”
  • Stay off the grass!
  • Keep leaves off the lawn (use a blower, not a rake!)


If your lawn is well established, wait 1-2 weeks following seeding to cut the grass. Be careful and avoid any weak or bare areas which take longer to fill in. For partially established or renovated lawns you need to wait 3-4 weeks to allow enough time for the turf to germinate and grow properly prior to cutting. Make sure to continue mowing high!

Lawn Debris-

Keep your lawn clear from leaves, but make sure not to use a rake because it can uproot the newly planted seed. Use a blower to keep those leaves off your lawn.

Seed Germination-

As long as you’re watering properly, your new grass seed will take a minimum of 14-21 days to germinate.
