What is core aeration?
Core aeration is the method of loosening up compacted soil
by removing "plugs" of soil, allowing water to penetrate
deep within the soil and facilitating the exchange of air in
the soil with fresh air from the atmosphere.
Why is core aeration important?
Core aeration helps to break up thatch, improves the soil
structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and
opens the way for water, nutrients, and fertilizer to get
deep into the root zone of you lawn.
These effects make core aeration one of the most beneficial
services to enhance your lawn's appearance and health.
Ideal time for Aeration?
Because the aeration process is stressful on lawns, it
should only be done in the cooler months of the year, spring
If you're planning on using a crabgrss control, grub control
or fertilizer in combination with overseeding of your lawn
we recommend that you aerate twice per year, once in the
spring and once in the fall. Since many fertilizers can
cause issue with the germination process we recommend that
you alternate aeration with the application of overseeding
and fertilizers or weed control products.

Fertilization: If you are looking for a greener,
healthier, weed-free lawn, Deming can work with you on a
lawn fertilization plan that works for
your soil to
produce that rich lush look that you will surely enjoy.
Core Aeration: This should be done every fall along with
over-seeding. Aeration is a great soil conditioner. It
loosens and de-compacts your soil, stimulates lawn root
growth, and helps consume thatch quicker! We usually perform
this service in the fall, along with over-seeding, and spot
power-seeding to dead or bare areas.
Lawn Thatching: This is performed when too much dead
grass accumulates over the root system of your grass. This
thatch retains the chemicals and fertilizers and prevents
them from reaching the root system of your grass. It will
keep your lawn from greening up, and even fungus/insect
controllers from working! Usually ¾” of thatch or more means
you should request this service. Every other year is a good
schedule to keep with lawn thatching.
Power-Seeding: (slicer seeding) This service is
performed when your lawn has a lot of dead or bare areas.
Depending on the condition of your lawn, it may require all
of your lawn to be treated. Power-Seeding works by cutting
rows of groves down to the soil, under the dead or bare
areas, to plant the seed exactly where it needs to be. This
is an effective way of
seeding damaged areas, bare areas, or a lawn that is just in
a very bad condition.
Top Soil: A great way to top-dress
bad existing soil with a top dressing or cover roots, low
areas, or an uneven lawn.
Compro: This is a dark and rich soil used to top
dress a lawn that doesn’t have a good soil base. Usually, we
slightly cover the entire lawn with compro to become part of
the grass’s root system. It will give your lawn a great
boost for years and years.
Sodding: This is good for trouble areas or just
giving you an instant lawn. Usually used in new home
construction, or landscaping renovation, this is a good
option for many people. Remember there is no such thing as a
shady sod. All sod is grown in full sun.
