Existing lawns can be renovated to create a thicker lawn that aids in crowding out weeds and other pests. We use walk-behind and tractor driven slit-seeders. A slit-seeder works by cutting slots or slits is the soil and then dropping seed over the top behind the cutters. During rain or watering, this seed in moved into the slots/slits causing the seed to come up in rows that are approximately .75" to 1" apart. As the seed germinates and begins growth, the rows of grass will eventually fill in and cross each other creating a dense turf that will help to keep weeds and annual grasses choked out.
Aeration & Over-Seeding applied by pulling plugs (15-20 per square foot) from the soil. As these plugs break down, they create a new layer of topsoil allowing oxygen, moisture and nutrients into the root zone of the turf. After aeration, seed is broadcast into the aerated areas. It is necessary to get these 15-20 plugs per square foot to aerate the soil properly ensuring proper cultivation for the new seed and its germination and to protect the crowns of the existing turf. We also recommend specialized follow-up application maintenance programs to get your lawn off to a running start.
