Core Aeration & Overseeding Services in Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, and other areas in East Portland, OR.
Do you know what keeps your lawn healthy, green, and thriving? Regular mowing and maintenance will only take your lawn so far. However, treating your yard with annual aeration and overseeding will create stronger roots, resulting in a thicker lawn.
At J&C Lawn Care, we offer our core aeration and overseeding services for homes near Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, and other areas around East Portland, OR. We schedule these services during the months of September and October. During this time, your grass can soak up nutrients and oxygen well before freezing temperatures and the buildup of fall leaves.
What is Core Aeration?
We use a special tool to perform core aeration, which punctures small holes throughout your lawn. These holes allow oxygen, hydration, and nutrients to go deep into the soil and roots. Aerating your lawn loosens compacted soil, which helps avoid thatch buildup on your lawn. Thatch is a layer of dead grass and debris that forms across the turf between the blades and the roots.
Thatch can create major problems for your lawn, including moisture and oxygen reduction and the promotion of lawn disease and pests.
The benefits of core aeration eventually lead to a stronger, healthier, and greener lawn. It deters weeds from growing, keeps pests away, and repairs damage to your lawn. Allowing your turf to replenish its nutrients and oxygen supply enables it to thrive throughout peak growing periods.
Overseeding After Aeration
At J&C Lawn Care, we pair our aeration services with overseeding to give your lawn the maximum amount of benefits possible. Overseeding encourages healthy growth on your lawn, for both new and old grass. Overseeding right after we aerate means more seeds reach the soil and a higher germination rate. This allows new grass to grow, creating an even thicker lawn.
Overseeding directly after an aeration service will deliver visible results to your lawn in as little as 3-4 weeks!
Why do we choose to aerate and overseed at the same time? Our intention is to give your grass the best chance of optimal growth and survival. The benefits of overseeding post-aeration include
- More seeds reach the dirt, creating a higher germination rate
- Repaired grass from exposure to heat, drought, or sun damage
- Weeds are kept at bay and have a harder time growing
- New grass seed is added to the existing seed which strengthens the growing lawn
