Among the many lawn treatments that lawns should receive each and every year, few are more important than aeration and over-seeding. These two treatments are essential in providing lawns with the building blocks they need to stay full and healthy year-round. Here at Fit Turf, we are proud to provide aeration and aeration over-seeding to lawns across the greater Denver, CO and Detroit, MI areas. Read on to learn more about these treatments, and contact our team today!
What is Aeration?
Aeration is a treatment performed on lawns to help reduce compaction and improve air/water circulation. Aerated lawns are not only more resistant to damage — they are also better able to absorb water, nutrients, minerals and turf seeds than lawns that are not aerated. The process of traditional aeration involves the extraction of small soil cores every few inches across the lawn. These cores are usually 2 to 3 inches in length and about ½-inch in diameter. The spaces left by their removal reduces soil compaction and improves circulation in your lawn overall. Our team typically aerates lawns in spring or fall for best results.
What is Aeration + Over-Seeding?
Aeration and over-seeding treatment involves aeration followed by a round of new turf seed spreading. Newly-created gaps from aeration allow turf seeds from over-seeding treatment to penetrate deep within the soil and take hold. This encourages better growth overall and will bolster the health and fullness of your lawn. Our team here at Fit Turf performs both spring and fall over-seeding for lawns in the greater Denver, CO and Detroit, MI regions.
