Heavy, foot, paw, and tire traffic can quickly take a toll on any lawn, resulting in heavy turf compaction and thatch buildup. Eventually, the condensed soil can impede root growth, preventing the grass from developing the deep root system needed to thrive in extreme weather conditions and drought periods. Some telltale indicators of compacted grounds include: Stretches of clay soil, Dead grass-Soft/spongy lawn spots, Stunted plant growth, Shallow vegetation rooting, Water run-off. If you are experiencing any of those indicators, please contact us to schedule a core aeration today.
Back To Nature’s seasonal core aeration services can help you maintain a robust, vibrant, healthy lawn. Our aeration process removes soil plugs, depositing them on the turf and allowing them to organically decompose for enhanced physical structure and better overall growing medium. Aerations can be completed in either the spring, or fall, however, we do recommend a fall aeration for optimal results. Our aeration process offers several essential benefits, such as: Minimized thatch accumulation, Reduced soil compaction, Thicker, greener, and more lush lawn.
At Back To Nature, we recognize that every yard has its own distinctive care needs (Underground dog fence, shallow irrigation lines, etc). That’s why, in addition to our core aeration services, we offer liquid aeration treatments. Liquid Aeration contains a highly effective soil penetrant that breaks apart compacted dirt and clay particles, creating “space” in the soil that accelerates distribution of vital nutrients, water, and oxygen to the root systems. Back to Nature’s liquid aeration benefits include: Promote beneficial microbes, Trigger root growth, Balance soil composition, Introduce vital humus-building microbes to turf. When completed annually, Liquid Aeration relieves compaction, introduces essential trace elements, generates rich living soil; perfect for planting and growing.
Love your healthy and strong lawn, but wish it were a bit thicker? Back To Nature’s Overseeding services can help. We use premium-quality seed products to revitalize the texture of your grass for thick, ballpark-quality turf you’ll love showing off to friends and neighbors. Combine Overseeding with our Core Aeration service for the best possible results with maximum seed-to-soil contact! *If the lawn is severely damaged, an Overseeding may not be enough and a Renovation may be recommended. Our lawn care experts can help determine the best plan for your specific lawn.
At Back to Nature, we know that sometimes, standard Overseeding isn’t enough to restore your lawn, after it’s suffered long-term impairment. Over time, insects, harsh weather, and/or disease can cause permanent damage that prohibits new, healthy growth. Back to Nature’s Lawn Renovation service can restore, repair, and revitalize your turf. A Lawn Renovation includes the following: Double-pass Core Aeration and Overseeding of the entire lawn, as well as Slit Seeding all of the bare/damaged areas. The Slit Seeder slice grooves into the ground and deposits the seed into the soil, for maximum seed-to-soil contact!
