Why Core Aerate and Seed?

Core Aeration

It’s safe to say that really all lawns need to be aerated annually. It promotes deeper root systems, less water usage, and just an overall healthier lawn.

Over Seeding
  • Tall Fescue is a cool season grass, which means it does better in the cooler temperatures.
  • It DOES NOT RESEED itself. Other grasses such as Bermuda and Zoysia will reseed themselves.
  • Summer heat damages Tall Fescue, it suffers and yes dies. This results in losing about 25% of your Tall Fescue Lawn every year just from the summer heat.
  • Lawns also suffer from diseases and insects as well.

No Worries Top Turf is here and we can bring the youth back into your lawn with Aeration and Seeding. Resulting in a greener, healthier lawn to enjoy all year round.

Over Seeding

Tall Fescue has no real way of spreading and reproducing itself like Bermuda grass or Zoysia grass does. Late August, September, and October is the best time of year to rejuvenate your fescue lawn. Fescue grows and develops in cooler temperatures much better than hot weather. We suggest doing the aeration and seeding while the soil temperatures are warm rather than waiting until late fall. The seed will need to be kept constantly moist for a much shorter period of time before germination if seeded early in the fall.

“By overseeding your Tall Fescue lawn annually, you are introducing new grass on an annual consistent basis, which will help to keep your lawn healthy, strong, and maintain its full, robust color for the upcoming year.”

Benefits of Over Seeding

• Thicker, Healthier Lawn
• Replenish Your Lawn That Was Lost Over Summer Months
• Less Susceptible to Lawn Diseases 
• Less Susceptible to Getting Lawn Destroying Insects
• Less Chance of Getting Weeds

Core aeration is one of the most important things you can have done to your lawn in the late Spring to a warm season lawn. Compacted soil severely reduces the ability of grassroots to expand and take up water and nutrients. When this happens it is very difficult for water and nutrients to penetrate compacted clay/soil. So, when if you see that your lawn is not looking as good as it should, know that this is directly related to how deep, strong and extensive the root system is on your lawn. The stronger the roots, the healthier, thicker, and greener your lawn will be.
