Aeration & Seeding
Aeration & Seeding is Key to Your Lawn’s Success
Aeration allows nutrients, water, and oxygen to penetrate deep into the soil, while seeding is a must for Tall Fescue grasses, which don’t regenerate and must be reseeded each year to establish new growth. Together, both are crucial to your lawn’s health.
For cool season lawns, aeration and seeding begins the end of August and is completed the end of October. This is the optimal time to aerate your lawn and plant seed in preparation for the spring, because cooler weather will allow seed to germinate and grow.
Warm season lawns benefit from annual core aeration during the summer which begins the first part of June and ends in July. Virginia Green does not recommend seeding during the fall for warm season lawns as it weakens the turf the following summer and creates other issues which reduce the overall turf quality.
With double-core aeration and a proprietary, 100% weed-free seed blend, Virginia Green offers the area’s top aeration and seeding service. This critical service, along with our comprehensive lawn care programs, is designed to keep your lawn healthy and green, all year long.
