How Aeration & Overseeding Invigorates Your Lawn

Lawn aeration and overseeding are essential components of cool-season grass maintenance and lawn care in the Mid-Atlantic Region.


Throughout the year, your lawn's soil can become compacted from regular lawn traffic, watering, and mowing. This will cause your lawn to lose its vigor if not regularly aerated. Core aeration pulls plugs from the soil to reduce compaction and allow for water and air to readily reach the root system of your lawn. Lawn aeration ensures the roots of your lawn can grow deep into the earth, retaining moisture to prevent damage during drought conditions.

We aerate your lawn in two directions, utilize hand aerators around the edges, and utilize premium lawn fertilizers and lawn seed. These lawn care practices and products result in a thick green lawn.

Why Aerate Your Lawn?

  • Allows air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass more effectively

  • Improves lawn drainage, promotes lawn root growth, improves grass resiliency, improves lawn fertilizer and water uptake, and allows your lawn's nutrients to work deeper into the soil.

  • Reduces lawn soil compaction and reduces the chance of puddling

  • Allows lawn roots to grow deep in the soil

Why Overseed Your Lawn?
  • Lawn overseeding fills in summer lawn damage or bare patches where weeds have been killed off throughout the course of the year.

  • Lawn overseeding improves the density of your lawn, boosts your lawn’s rich green color, and builds your lawn’s resistance to disease and drought.

The lawn reseeding season begins the first week of September and continues through the end of October. Fall is the best time to perform lawn reseeding as it is warm during the day with cool nights for a sustained period. Germination of your new seed takes between 7-21 days.
