September 23, 2020 |

Keep your Rockland County lawn looking its best by making your aeration and overseeding appointment today with Majestic Lawn Care and Landscape.

We had a hot summer this year. And you and your family made fair use of your backyard this year by Staycationing due to Covid19. Now, you may notice that the soil underneath your feet feels hard. You have compacted soil.

This summer’s heat, lack of rain, and heavy foot traffic cause the soil to compact, making it hard for moisture, nutrients, and oxygen to penetrate it.

September is the ideal time for core aeration and overseeding your lawn because the temperatures are cooler and there’s more rain in the forecast.

Is Aeration and Overseeding Worth It?

In a word, yes. Aerated soil means that there is more oxygen, light, and moisture flowing through the ground. Core aeration also prepares your ground to receive grass seed.

Here are five reasons why fall aeration and overseeding are worth it:

  1. It relieves soil compaction.
  1. It gives your grassroots a place to grow to with more air, water and nutrients.
  1. It reduces thatch.
  1. It relieves the soil of carbon dioxide.
  1. It’s an essential part of conventional and organic lawn maintenance.

After our crews finish aerating your soil, we’ll overseed your lawn. Then, we’ll add an application of top dressing or compost to feed the soil, if requested, and hold in moisture.

It takes about three to four weeks for the grass seed to germinate and grow tall enough for mowing. You need to water your newly seeded lawn daily for the first three weeks. Then, you can cut back to infrequent watering once the turf is ready for mowing.

When is it too late to aerate and overseed your Bergen County, NJ lawn? After the middle to the end of October. Your turfgrass needs time to germinate and grow a healthy stand before the ground freezes.

Waiting too long in the season leads to diminished results.
