Yards take a beating from the weather, wildlife, and invasive weeds, but you can fight back! The soil beneath your grass may not be conducive to the thick, green grass that homeowners hope for. Like any plant, grass needs to receive the proper amounts of light, moisture, and nutrients to grow best. We are experienced in providing the care your lawn needs to restore the soil to its fullest potential.
At Stream Line Lawn & Landscape, we apply our decades of experience to the aeration, dethatching, and seeding services we perform for residents and businesses across the Westfield, Watchung, and Warren, communities in NJ.
What is Core Aeration & When Should it Be Performed
Core aeration is done to restore soil to ideal grass growing conditions. A machine called a lawn aerator is used, which removes compacted “plugs” of soil that block the flow of nutrients. The mechanical “tines” will remove soil plugs to create space for water, air, light, and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass.
This step should be completed annually, during the growing season (early spring). It is the first treatment in the process to revitalize the soil beneath your yard. Our pros have the equipment and experience to complete the treatment properly to ensure the results you desire.
How Thatch Affects Your Soil, What Causes it, & When Our Dethatching Service is Scheduled
The accumulation of organic matter on top of the soil, at the base of your grass, is called thatching. This impedes the breakdown of the nutrients your grass needs. Dethatching works alongside aeration and allows grass to achieve proper growth. With regards to the scheduling of our dethatching service, it should be performed annually during the growing season (early spring) in the area that includes the communities of Westfield, Watchung, and Warren.
One reason thatching occurs is the over-fertilization of lawns. Over-fed lawns produce more material in the thatch than the microbes in your soil can decompose. Once the layer of thatch becomes too thick, the grass struggles to establish itself in the soil.
The issues caused by thatch can become more complicated if the thatch is over-compacted by heavy foot traffic.
Overseeding to Restore the Grass in Your Lawn
Once our team completes the core aeration and dethatching processes, the final step in restoring your lawn is overseeding. The soil will be revitalized and ready to receive grass seeds. Overseeding is the process of spreading grass seeds thoroughly atop an existing lawn surface.
We consider overseeding an important step because it allows the grass seedlings to establish root systems in the freshly prepared soil. When done properly, the service will bring thickness and vibrancy back to your lawn.
