CORE AERATION & OVERSEEDING
Aeration is one of the best things that we do as preventative medicine for lawns. Aeration loosens the soil and allows air, water, and nutrients to reach your lawn roots. It is also the best way to help correct the problem of excessive thatch build-up. Additionally, aeration of the lawn improves drainage and the take-up of water by the grass and it encourages deep root growth. Overseeding your lawn will help to fill in sparse areas in your lawn where the grass has died off. Our professionals can top dress, aerate, and overseed your lawn resulting in a more lush and healthy lawn which will make your yard the envy of your street.
If your desire is a fescue lawn, Fall core aeration and over seeding is a must. Jesus Landscaping provides this service primarily in the Fall but it can also be done in the early Spring. Our current climate zone is know as a transition zone meaning different turfs thrive at different times of the year. Fescue is a cool season turf and requires a strong root system to endure the tough Kansas summer. Therefore, we suggest plugging and seeding in late September-October because the temperatures are cooler thus creating a good environment to establish a fescue lawn. The root system then becomes more mature and is ready to thrive next Spring and Summer.
Warm season Turf Bermuda and Zoysia are commonly seen in our zone. These turfs thrive in warm temperatures and can endure the intense heat much better than a fescue turf. These turfs are less tolerant of broadleaf weeds choking out weeds meaning less maintenance which is a big positive when deciding which turf to install. These types of turf will transition into a dormant phase about 6 months a year meaning they will not be green and vibrant and will have that dormant look. Rye grass can be sewn to add color during the dormant months. If you looking for a completely new turf with instant results, consider sod as an option and receive instant gratification. Jesus Landscaping can provide a complete estimate with giving you the option to aerate and over seed or to sod.
