Performed in September along with Round 4, turf fertilization & aeration relieves compaction in the lawn and makes it easier for water and nutrients to penetrate the ground and reach your lawn’s roots.Over time, the tough, clay-ridden, yards of northern Virginia can block water from feeding young grass roots. We recommend having your lawn aerated every fall and in spring as well if the lawn gets a lot of foot traffic.
Overseeding – When done immediately after aeration, overseeding can help fill in bare spots in the lawn and keep it thick and healthy. De-thatching and thatch removal – The de-thatcher removes thatch that has accumulated in the lawn over the course of the mowing season and also further prepares the soil for overseeding. We recommend having the lawn de-thatched at least once every two years.
Topdressing – Adding a topdressing comprised of 50% topsoil and 50% Compro to the lawn helps integrate organic material into the rocky clay soil that is typical in this area. It also improves the seed bed for overseeding.
