To help your lawn recover from drought stress and enhance its vigor and overall health, our turf experts recommend Core Aeration and Overseeding for your lawn this fall.

Core Aeration and Overseeding are an essential and necessary component of any lawn care program. Due to the extended lack of moisture, some lawn areas may not recover even when cooler temperatures and fall rains arrive. To solve this problem, we recommend Core Aerating and Overseeding to reestablish the lawn in these dead areas.

Core Aeration:
Loosens compact soil, creates room for new turf growth, and allows more water and nutrients to reach the root zone. Core Aeration is so essential to lawn health, that golf courses Core Aerate their turf two times per year.
