The benefits of core aeration are many, including a stronger and deeper root zone, better drainage, decreased thatch, and better water and nutrient uptake. With every rain, mow or foot step, the soil is compacted tighter and tighter, making it tougher for the roots to squeeze through the spaces. This soil compaction results in shallow, thin roots that are simply being strangled, as they need pore space for air, water and food nutrients to survive.
Following up core aeration with our seed blend is a great way to thicken up a thin lawn or add a hardier, more drought or disease-resistant grass variety to your property. Good seed-to-soil contact is essential for seeding success, and the new grass seed will have an easier time growing in the holes left behind by aeration.
