very important to the renovation
process. It not only amends the soil adding nutrients, it will help to
hold moisture and set the seed bed increasing germination rates and
decreasing the time to establish the lawn.
Topdressing may also be done to healthy lawns to keep
them healthy. Much like you add potting soil to you
garden or plants, topdressing will help the soil to breath and add
nutrients to the soil. We will first
aerate or both services may be needed depending on the
lawn. These processes allow the topdressing to penetrate and “mix” in to
the soil. Top dressing benefits the lawn as it builds
up the quality of the soil over a period of time, clay soils will drain
better thus improving root development. Some soils may need repetitive
applications annually or semiannually to achieve the best results.
Another benefit of top dressing the lawn is that it
will help to even out any lumps and bumps that are present on an uneven
lawn, filling in any small hollows that may develop. Top dressing also
stimulates the grass to produce new shoots and so results in denser
grass cover which helps combat the onset of weed and moss infestation.
We take pride in our work and go to great lengths to
achieve the best results possible. Whether you have a new home and need
to seed your new lawn or have an established lawn that is in need of
help, we will work with you and achieve the results you want.

Aeration, Slit seeding, Fertilization, Topdressing
Aeration is a great way to enrich your lawn, whether you do the aeration
the spring or fall we have a process that will fully aerate your lawn
and can then overseed and fertilize to fill in a thinning lawn. Fall is
the best time of the year although we can get excellent results with
spring planting. Spring planting is more dependant on your fertilization
- Aeration - For more detailed information please review our our
- We can also meet your spring renovation needs so
contact us early to adapt your fertilization plan.
Here you can see what we do to fully
aerate your lawn and what a core aeration “plug” looks like.
After the seed has been planted and fertilized you MUST
water the lawn. Sit back and wait for the seeds to germinate. Look
closely and see all the abundance of blades of new grass, proper
reseeding rates generate the best results : more seed = more germinated
grass = better results! Don’t forget to water! We check back on
our work to verify the progress of your lawn. We'll know if you are
keeping you're end of the bargain.
