Core Aeration and Overseeding
Keyman knows that Core Aeration is one of the best things that you can do for your lawn. The soil underneath most lawns in the Dane County area have a high percentage of clay. “Hard Clay” or compacted soils can cause your lawn to dry out and be more susceptible to insects and disease. A dry, hot summer can also lead to compaction and cracking at the soil surface. Compacted soils limit moisture, air and fertilizers from getting down to the root system. It also makes it difficult for roots to expand and grow. Aeration penetrates hard soil and lets in air, water and fertilizer to encourage new root growth. It also provides room for the roots to expand into the holes, and will reduce soil compaction. Aeration will also provide a perfect environment to germinate new seed quickly. Getting younger and new grass varieties in your lawn will aid in better tolerance of hot/cold and wet/dry weather as well as overall increased resistance to pests and other fungal pathogens.
