Lawn Aeration Services
Sod Restoration / Aeration Thatching – We can take your existing sod and bring it back to life. With the right application of fertilizers and removal of damaging pests, your lawn can be beautiful again. Aeration is also a good way to bring your lawn back from the dead. Having this application will allow water to go deeper. It will also allow oxygen to reach the roots system with easy create a lush lawn. Having this done twice a year is recommended.
Lawn Aeration, or core cultivation, is standard lawn care. Aerating a lawn means supplying the soil with air, usually by poking holes in the ground throughout the lawn using an aerator. It reduces soil compaction and helps control thatch in lawns while helping water and fertilizer move into the root zone. A lawn can be aerated at any time the ground is not frozen, but should not be done when it is extremely hot and dry. Heavy traffic areas will require aeration more frequently. Aeration is most effective when actual cores or plugs of soil are pulled from the lawn. Holes should be two to three inches deep and no more than two to four inches apart. Lawns should be thoroughly watered the day before aerating so plugs can be pulled more deeply and easily. Mark all sprinkler heads, shallow irrigation lines and cable TV lines before aerating so those lines will not be damaged. On thatchy lawns, it is important to leave the cores on the lawn, allowing them to work back into the grass. Otherwise, the cores may be removed or left on the lawn. Lawns may be fertilized and seeded immediately after aeration. There is no need to top dress lawns following aeration.

The first step we take to lawn restoration is to diagnose the problem, then inspect how bad it is and offer the best solution. Because there are many ways to rectify a tired looking lawn, we specialize in this area and have had great results and feedback from our clients. Natures Elements Landscaping only uses the best coring machines, rotary hoes, scarifying machines and fertilizers.

Don’t run the risk of over fertilizing your lawn and or fertilizing at the wrong time of year, all you will be feeding is the weeds and little gains will be reaped. Natures Elements Landscaping will fertilize your lawns when needed. We know when the right time of year to fertilize is for both warm season and cool season grasses. Fertilizing at the right times will ensure your grass will last the cooler months and it will reduce the amount of weeds growing when combined with regular mowing and watering. Furthermore it is important to use a good quality fertilizer. Using a cheaper alternative gives you noticeably poorer results.
Scarifying- mainly couch
This process is mainly conducted with couch grass. It involves the removal of a build up of thatch. Thatch is a dead grass build up underneath the top layer of growing lawn. This type of build up affects underneath the greener grass. Natures Elements Landscaping will rectify all these problems making sure your grass stays healthy and thatch free.
This is a process that we use to aerate the soil beneath your lawn. Aerating your soil is a great way to improve soil structure and get air down to the roots. Lawn roots need air too. In heavy traffic areas soil becomes compacted and roots struggle to spread and grow regular coring will loosen the soil and solve this problem.
