Roots need oxygen, water and other nutrients to stay healthy. Aeration allows water and oxygen to move down to the root system. You must drill small holes all over the yard. This process will also enhance the intake of plant food. Long term, it will help you save water and provide drought protection for your roots. Landscape turf struggles in desert heat like Utah heat, which can lead them loosing their healthy rich color.
The goal is to revitalize the grass root zone and to relieve compact soil and improve the movement of water, air and nutrient movement into the soil and within the root zone. Because every yard has a specific soil composition, each yard will require specific solution. High clay content soil will receive more sand in the top dressing composition. Soils already containing a high sand content will most likely need an organic mix in order to hold water and hold onto nutrients.
It is strongly recommend to do this process after core aeration (the process of drilling small holes in your soil), as the solution works best in the aerated holes. When this is done correctly, it will speed up soil recovery.
The goal is to alleviate compaction issues and improve water, air and nutrient movement into the soil (infiltration) and within the root zone (percolation).
Ever wonder how baseball fields and golf courses stay so lush and perfectly green? Well we know the secret: over seeding.
On the surface, over seeding sounds excessive, but what it's quite the opposite. This process is used frequently on baseball fields and golf courses and other commercial real estate to ensures that there are no empty patches of turf on your landscape. We can incorporate this process however you want, whether you're already using our services or brand new. When a yard develops problems such as thinning grass, weed problems, compacted soil, poor water flow or patchy areas, we've found that over seeding solves all of these problems.
Top dressing and over seeding are great by themselves, but are truly meant to be done in unity. When you do this you allow for a better environment for the seeds to root and grow strong. Typically we will do these processes together.
