Organic Lawn Care Services
Spring Core Aerating, Top-Dressing & Seeding
|Add 1/4 inch of Composted soil|
This spring Cedar Run Landscapes will begin our new organic lawn care services. A big issue many homeowners have, especially in newly constructed homes that have been heavily graded, is that the soil is in a very poor condition. The process of spring core aeration, top-dressing, and over seeding will provide your lawn with the nutrients needed to successfully thrive without the need for quarterly fertilizations and pesticide control.
We begin our process with a soil test. It is important to have your soil tested to understand what your lawn needs to thrive. Please head over to our blog to learn more about why soil testing is important.
Once we've got an understanding of what the existing soil conditions are we can begin making the appropriate organic lawn care improvements.
The next step to beginning your organic lawn care is core aerating. Core aeration is when plugs of grass and soil, usually around 3 inches long and ¾ inches in diameter, are removed from the lawn. The plugs are left in the lawn to break down, adding organic matter and bringing beneficial bacteria up to the surface. Core aerating increases air, water and nutrient movement to the roots of the lawn while also relieving soil compaction. Once core aeration is completed the lawn is top-dressed. Top-dressing is the process of adding a thin layer of a custom blend of organically rich compost. By top dressing you will be gradually adding organic matter and building up the biological value of the soil in your lawn.
We then over seed the lawn area to provide a thicker fuller lawn, squeezing out the weeds, and finish by applying any additional amendments as suggested by the soil test.
