Term definitions

Aeration The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. Helps roots grow deeply to produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn

Dethatching Lawn thatch is un-decomposed stems and roots that accumulate near the soil surface due to improper watering, over fertilization or poor soil quality. Thick thatch layers prevent water, air, and nutrients from penetrating the soil, causing reduced root growth and increased potential for drought stress. Dethatching is the process of removing this excess from your lawn to get it on the path to full health

Compost Topdressing

Adding compost to increase the soil’s organic matter feeds your lawn naturally. The best and most organic way to feed your lawn each year is with a
compost topdressing application in the spring and fall 

Overseeding Distributing additional grass seed over your lawn, especially a thin lawn, can help restore its appearance and texture. This allows for less area where weeds can germinate and grow
