Aeration & Overseeding
It is a very deflating feeling finding bare patches on your lawn that make it look neglected and brown. A lawn can make or break your home's curb appeal, and an unhealthy lawn can make anybody visiting your home uncomfortable.

The end result is a superior-looking lawn that is strong and beautiful, much like your own skin under proper care. Unlike a person's skin, however, restoring your lawn can be a huge undertaking. We have the skills and resources to help bring green back to yards.
YOU NEED AERATION AND OVERSEEDING IF...
Your Lawn Gets Plenty Of Activity
Parties, playtime, and parking: Three occasions in which your lawn can take a beating. Heavy foot traffic, parked cars, and other events on your lawn can cause the underground soil to compact. This usually leads to declining turf health, improper drainage, and even a growing presence of weeds on your lawn. What aeration can do for you in this regard is to keep soil from compacting so that these problems don’t occur.
Your Lawn Has Dead Grass / Brown Patches
As mentioned, aeration and overseeding allow your lawn to develop a healthy and green appearance. By aerating your lawn, holes are created that allow more oxygen, water, and other nutrients to get in the ground and allows the grass seed somewhere to root. The holes prevent the seed from getting washed off by rainwater and keep the grass in the areas desired.
Your Lawn Doesn't React Well to Fertilizer
Compacted soil can also keep grassroots shallow. When this happens, you will notice that fertilizer's effects will be limited, leading to a lawn that doesn't green up fully or even brownout. Aeration allows fertilizer to work better and last longer, making for roots that stabilize and allow grass and plants to strengthen.
Your Lawn Has Standing Water
Standing water is another bad situation for a healthy lawn. If your lawn is forming puddles of water during heavy rain, then you have drainage issues or grading issues. Aerating and possibly regrading can help with these issues.
