Aeration/ Dethatching/ Overseeding


Aeration, dethatching, and overseeding services are essential lawn care practices that promote healthy grass growth, improve soil structure, and enhance the overall appearance of lawns. These services are designed to address common issues such as soil compaction, thatch buildup, and thin or patchy grass, resulting in a lush, vibrant lawn.

Services Offered:

  1. Lawn Aeration:
    • Core Aeration: Removal of small soil plugs from the lawn to alleviate soil compaction and enhance air, water, and nutrient penetration.
    • Spike Aeration: Use of spikes to create small holes in the soil, improving soil structure and root growth.
  2. Dethatching:
    • Thatch Assessment: Evaluation of the lawn to determine the thickness of the thatch layer (the layer of dead grass, roots, and debris between the soil and the green grass).
    • Mechanical Dethatching: Use of specialized equipment to remove excess thatch, allowing water, air, and nutrients to reach the soil.
    • Power Raking: A more aggressive form of dethatching that uses rotating tines to pull up and remove heavy thatch buildup.
  3. Overseeding:
    • Seed Selection: Selection of appropriate grass seed varieties based on the lawn's existing grass type, climate, and soil conditions.
    • Seed Application: Even distribution of grass seeds over the lawn to fill in thin or bare spots and enhance lawn density.
    • Post-Seeding Care: Recommendations for watering, mowing, and fertilization to ensure successful seed germination and growth.


  • Improved Soil Health: Aeration alleviates soil compaction, enhancing root development and improving the lawn's ability to absorb water and nutrients.
  • Thatch Management: Dethatching removes excess thatch, preventing issues such as water runoff, pest infestations, and disease.
  • Enhanced Lawn Density: Overseeding fills in bare spots and thickens the lawn, resulting in a more uniform and lush appearance.
  • Increased Resilience: A well-aerated, dethatched, and overseeded lawn is more resilient to environmental stressors, such as drought, heat, and heavy foot traffic.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: These services collectively contribute to a greener, healthier, and more attractive lawn, enhancing curb appeal and property value.
