Lawn Aeration

The aeration process is based on simple mechanics and yields big results. First, your TruGreen lawn specialist mechanically removes small plugs of turf, thatch and soil from your lawn. In a week or two, these plugs break down, feeding nutrients back to your lawn's root system. You may even begin to see new white roots growing into the aerated holes.

Thatch is a layer of living and dead organic matter that occurs between the green matter and the soil surface. Excessive thatch (over 1/2 inch thick) creates a favorable environment for lawn damaging insects and disease, an unfavorable growing environment for grass roots, and can interfere with some lawn care practices.

Because aeration opens the soil, more nutrients, water and air reach your turf's roots. And layers of excessive thatch break down more easily, which can lower the risk of a lawn damaging insect infestation and disease. Aeration will be combined with overseeding to fill in bare or thin spots in your lawn. After overseeding, your lawn will become thicker, and more resistant to disease and insects than before. And, as new turf fills in, weeds are choked out, leaving you with a healthier, greener lawn.


Seeding Your Lawn

If you are having trouble growing grass in a certain area of your lawn, or you have patchy growth, Van Dame Outdoor Maintenance offers seeding services to help grow a lush carpet of grass that will give your home or business a full and complete appearance. We offer a complete seeding treatment of your yard. When it comes to seeding, preparation is key. By tilling the area, we ensure that the seed will take more easily. We match the grass seed to your existing lawn to ensure a uniform look. For new lawns, we offer numerous types of seed and select the best type for the conditions, and we can meet specific seed-type requests. Thinning areas of turf are inspected and filled in with new seed. At Van Dame, we make certain that your new growth will establish itself by using straw and/or matting to prevent wash out, as well as starter fertilizer and additional topsoil as necessary. We can even come back to provide watering services upon request.
