Aeration is the removal of small cores of soil to allow air, moisture and fertilizer down to the root zone. A core aerator will pull one to two inch plugs of soil from the ground. These plugs are deposited on the soil’s surface where they will break down. Soil surrounding the plugged holes and the soil deposited on top will collapse and fill in.

Natural Rainfall is Not Enough! It doesn’t ensure an adequate amount and is isn’t distributed evenly enough. This is particularly true when the lawn has just been fertilized. A good rule of thumb is that a lawn requires two inches of water per week. A rain gauge is the easiest way to determine how much water each part of your lawn gets.
The best defense is a good offense. A healthy lawn will win out in the competition against weeds for light, moisture and soil nutrients. Two factors are important in determining what method to use in managing weeds. The type of weed is the first. They are classified as either broadleaf, grass or sedge. The life cycle of the weed is the second factor.
Slice seeding is a great way to repair or improve a thin or weak lawn. Disease and insect damage can thin a lawn so badly that renovation is the last resort. Slice seeding will introduce new seed into the lawn and help thicken it up. This method solves lawn problems efficiently, and improves your lawn’s density.
Lawn Diseases Treatments
Of all the pests that damage lawns, fungus diseases are one of the most difficult to tame. There are hundreds of diseases that can infect your turf. Some are relatively harmless, others can destroy an entire lawn in a very short time. Fungus spores spread on the wheels of lawn mowers, on the shoes of children, on the droplets of rain that bounce from plant to plant during rain or watering, or blow like microscopic seeds across your lawn.
