Lawn Seeding & Renovation

Lawn Seeding & Renovation

Seed to soil contact and moisture control are essential for high germination rates and deep rooting. This is best achieved through core aeration combined with broadcast seeding, or slit seeding.

Top dressing with compost is sometimes recommended to increase the level of organic matter in the soil

  • Core Aeration helps control thatch, improves soil structure, creates growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water, fertilizer, and oxygen to reach the roots. Combined with over seeding the core holes create and excellent seed bed.

 

  • Applying a compost topdressing in conjunction with your seeding will aid water retention, reduce soil compaction, increase root/shoot ration, aid photosynthetic capability, and increase resistance to pests and environmental stressors. 
  • Slit Seeding slices through the thatch layer and into the soil, creating furrows. Seeds are dropped into the furrows, creating excellent seed/soil contact. This process is especially effective on slopes or large bare areas.
