If your soil is compacted, the solution is straightforward: aeration. Our aerators remove cores of soil, leaving small holes or cavities in the lawn deep within the soil. This practice allows much needed nutrients, water, and oxygen to penetrate deeply into the roots of your lawn. Also, compacted soil contributes to the lack of earthworms and other decomposing organisms which in turn leads to the accumulation of thatch. Overseeding is usually performed immediately after aeration. It is great for filling in those bare spots in your lawn and compensates for the natural slow down of the turf's reproduction. A thick healthy lawn is the best way to strangle those unwanted weeds.
