Decades of experience are applied to the services we provide with aeration, dethatching, and seeding to ensure your grass receives the sunlight, moisture, and nutrients it needs.
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 amount 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 areas in New Jersey.
What is Core Aeration & When Should it Be Performed
Core aeration is done to restore soil to ideal grass growing conditions. A machine called an aerator is used; this 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 performed once annually, either during the fall or the spring season. It is the first treatment in the process to revitalize the soil beneath your grass. Our pros have the equipment and experience to complete the treatment properly to ensure the results you desire.
How Thatch Affects Your Soil & When to Schedule Our Dethatching Service
The accumulation of organic matter on top of your soil and below your grass is called thatch. This thick layer impedes the breakdown of the nutrients your grass needs to thrive. To get rid of it, you must schedule our dethatching service. Once our experts remove this layer, your lawn will be able to gain much better access to nutrients and grow a lot thicker and stronger.
Dethatching should be performed when your lawn is actively growing. For our area of New Jersey, this means either the fall or the spring season. It is best to schedule this service in conjunction with our aeration service.
The issues caused by thatch can become more complicated if the thatch is over-compacted by heavy foot traffic.
Overseeding will fill in the patchy and bare spots on your lawn.
Once our team completes the core aeration and dethatching processes, the final step to restoring your lawn is overseeding. With the holes from aeration and the absence of a thick layer of thatch, this is the best time for new seeds to germinate. During our overseeding service, we will spread extra seeds throughout your lawn to fill in any patchy or bare spots. We consider overseeding an important step because it allows the grass seedlings to establish strong root systems in the freshly prepared soil. When done properly, the service will bring thickness and vibrancy back to your lawn.
