Aeration and Overseeding

In order to maintain a healthy lawn, your soil requires water, air, and nutrients.

Core AerationOur lawn care specialists provide a ‘core’ aeration service: a mechanical process that removes 2-4″ plugs of soil and thatch allowing the soil to ‘open’. This process helps reduce compaction, improves water infiltration, improves rooting, and most importantly- reduces thatch. “Thatch” refers to the undecomposed layer of organic between the soil surface and the living grasses. Thatch effectively suffocates the living plants by preventing air, nutrients, and water from reaching the soil.

Most lawns growing in heavy clay or sandy soils benefit greatly from core aeration. The simple fact is, without proper aeration, a lawn won’t develop to its maximum potential. Therefore, at Lawns of Southern NH, we recommend annual fall core aeration. Spring aeration is not recommended because the process may interfere with our crabgrass control barrier.
