Aeration & Overseeding

Fall aeration alleviates the natural compaction and excess thatch in your lawn from the winter, spring, and summer. This allows water, air, and other important nutrients to be absorbed at a higher rate.  It is also a key step in reducing water runoff or puddling that kills grass as it allows the soil to absorb more water. Aeration in the fall also encourages your grass to grow deeper roots, which prepares it for the winter.

Most turf grasses have a finite life of 7-10 years, which is why it is so important to reseed to add to the existing lawn. The fall period happens to be the opportune growing conditions by avoiding the dry, hot summer and the harmful freeze of winter.

At Heartland Turf we have invested in top-of-the-line ride-on and walk-behind aerators which allow us to access your entire property while having the confidence that we can pull the ideal 3” plugs on even the hardest lawns.
