Aeration is a process where the soil is perforated with small holes to allow water, nutrients and oxygen to be absorbed by your lawns roots. By aerating your lawn, you allow for the grass roots to grow deeper and help build a strong, lush lawn. Aeration also helps loosen compacted soils, which prevent nutrients from circulating freely.
Aeration can help with improved oxygen flow between the soil and air, as well as, strengthen your lawn against environmental factors such as drought or excessive heat. By aerating your lawn, you improve its chances of absorbing more nutrients from your fertilizer, which in turn gives your grass a lush, healthy & green look. Healthy grass also means improved cushioning, perfect if you have kids that play outside! Aeration is best performed during the growing season because it allows the grass to heal and fill-in any open areas. In Toronto & Markham, where cool season grass is very common, early to mid spring is the most ideal time to aerate your lawn, as the soil will be moist from all the rain.
Thatch is dead grass, leaves, stems, and other organic material that accumulate just above the soil. It will look like a tightly woven layer of debris. While some thatch is good for the lawn, too much will create a barrier that will prevent proper drainage and prevent oxygen and nutrients from reaching the root system. Too much will also allow for more insects and disease. Thatch should be able to naturally decay, but sometimes there can be an excess of thatch that can severely damage the lawn. More than 1/2 inch of thatch is too much.
This is the process of planting new grass seeds over the existing turf to fill in bare or thinning spots of grass. This is sometimes called reseeding or just seeding your lawn. Overseeding is needed because over time or with the intense heat of summer, lawns can begin to become bare or overrun with weeds. Seeding your lawn with new grass, especially new varieties of grass, will help it be more resilient and more resistant to disease, drought, insects, and weeds. Planting these new grass seeds over existing turf can really help to improve the condition of your lawn, making it more vibrant and thicker.
If you’re like most homeowners, you’ve likely gone to your local gardening store and purchased the first bag of fertilizer on the shelf. Without knowing the individual needs of your lawn, you run the risk of potentially harming your lawn. Most common commercial fertilizers focus on only three nutrients ( Nitrogen, Phosphorus & Potassium ) while ignoring all of your lawn’s other nutritional needs. With the lack of additional nutrients, your grass can become weaker, instead of stronger.
We use customized Organic lawn fertilization, instead of this one-fertilizer-fits-all approach. We take a closer look at your lawn’s individual nutritional needs, which in turn allows us to make your lawn look healthy, thick and green. By choosing an organic fertilization solution instead of a chemical one, we’re not only helping your lawn, but also helping to make the environment you live in, healthier.
