Renovating your lawn? At some point, every residential landscape can benefit from lawn renovation. Thick green grass can be a very important element in developing a beautiful landscape around your home. Lawn aeration service and overseeding can fill in your lawn to make it lush, green, and inviting again.
Not every struggling lawn needs to be completely torn out and replaced. You may just need Fall overseeding or reseeding in the Spring. If properly aerated and seeded, your lawn should grow full and beautiful in no time. With regular lawn aeration service, your grass will stay soft, plush, and appealing.
What Causes Lawn Problems?
Your lawn can become shabby over time due to a variety of factors. Drought can kill grass as can heavy foot traffic. Pets, insects, and wildlife can also do a number on yards. While many of the causes of lawn issues can’t be fixed (dogs really love to dig, and your rain dance might not be working), you can get new grass to grow through the process of annual aeration and overseeding.
Marshall’s Lawn Service uses premium grass seed (fine fescue, bluegrass blend, shade mix, etc.) that is known to grow well in the Kansas City area climate and soils for our reseeding lawn service. Our lawn-care specialist will work with you to identify and recommend the best seeds to use for your lawn.
Most grass types in our area don’t fill in on their own, and will require some seeding to repair those bare or thin spots in the turf. On a small area, your technician will manually rake the area to ensure ‘seed to soil’ contact, followed by a dose of starter fertilizer used to promote a successful growth.
When preparing to overseed, our lawn care specialist uses a verticutting mower to remove build-up thatch that has accumulated on your lawn, which reduces the density of the grass, allowing the new seed to take root. Overseeding is a great way to add some life back into a stressed lawn and provides your home with a thick and healthy turf.
Over time, soil can become compacted, especially here in the Midwest, where most of the soil is comprised of heavy clay depleting enough room for the root growth. Verticutting with our professional verticutting mower allows for a deeper cut, removing build-up thatch, and promotes the seed to come in contact with the soil for better germination.
Marshall’s Lawn Service encourages our customers to maintain a healthy root system, as it is a must for an attractive lawn. Regular aeration helps compacted soil loosen, allowing the root system to grow.
During the aeration process, small plugs of soil and roots are removed. This soil dissolves and breaks down to help speed up the decomposition of the thatch layer, improving the flow of oxygen, nutrients, and water to reach the root system.
Adding fertilizer to a newly seeded lawn will promote better root development and provides for a quicker establishment.
A soil test helps determine the condition of your soil and specific measurements needed to help your technician determine just what your lawn needs.
