Hard soil, brown patches of grass, and water puddling are all signs that your lawn needs to be aerated. Over time, compacted soil and thatch buildup make it impossible for water, nutrients, and oxygen to reach grass roots. This results in turf that’s discolored, slow growing, and generally unhealthy. Save your grass with our aeration in Nashville.
Benefits of Lawn Aeration
If your lawn is looking lackluster because of soil compaction, aeration is an easy way to give it a boost. You’ll start seeing results in no time, with benefits such as:
- Stronger roots: Once hard soil is broken up, grassroots can easily grow and create a stronger root system.
- Thicker grass: Following-up aeration with seeding makes it easy for sprouts to germinate and fill in bald patches.
- Fewer weeds: Deeper roots and thicker grass means there’s less space for weeds to grow.
- Drought resistance: Water can reach the roots instead of pooling on top of the soil, so you can water less often.
- Better fertilizer uptake: Aeration makes it possible for fertilizer to reach grass roots and do its job, so you get a healthier lawn with less product.
We Only Use High-Quality Grass Seed
Our aeration and seeding services use the best grass seed available. We use Blue Tag Certified seeds, which are inspected by the Tennessee Crop Improvement Association and help to the highest standards. That means you get high-quality grass seed without filler, weeds, or anything else undesirable.
Why Aerate in the Fall?
Between high temperatures, humidity, and insect activity, summer can really stress out your lawn. To help it recover, we offer fall aeration and seeding. Aeration creates small channels that give your grass room to breathe and makes it easy for water to penetrate the earth. The cooler temperatures in fall help seeds germinate, filling in bare patches quickly.
Core Aeration vs. Liquid Aeration
Our aeration in Nashville relies on core aeration, which is when a specialized machine pulls up small plugs of soil and deposits them on the surface. This option is preferable over liquid aeration because it gives you immediate results and helps with severe soil compaction and thatch buildup. The soil plugs will also break down and mix into the other soil, ensuring no nutrients are removed from your lawn.
