Turf damage can occur from several directions; pets, lawn disease, drought, repairs, erosion, and the list goes on. Lawn restoration is essential to restore the grass in damaged areas.
Bare ground or disturbed soil will not naturally replace itself with Kentucky bluegrass. Damaged areas will naturally grow weeds and unwanted grasses. Once established, the unwanted grasses will begin to spread into the lawn. Selective control of spurious grass varieties is limited, making eradication difficult without completely killing areas where the unwanted grasses have taken hold and reseeding.
The prudent response to damaged turf is to reseed the damaged areas, preventing unwanted plant establishment. We offer this service and perform the activity in conjunction with the spring aeration. We use premium quality seed and soil to optimize germination and the quick establishment of new turf.
We recommend from time to time that entire lawn surfaces be over seeded. Introducing new grass varieties reduces susceptibility to common turf diseases and improves the lawn appearance. The entire lawn over seeding is done with the spring aeration. The same process is effective at restoring neglected lawns, saving the homeowner hundreds of dollars when compared to installing new sod.
