Aeration Seeding


Create a healthier, thicker lawn with core aeration and overseeding services.

Thatch, or the appearance of brown and gray buildup on your lawn from dead roots, stems, and grass, compacts your lawn’s soil, leaving less room for essential nutrients to reach its roots. Aeration breaks up thatch by removing small plugs or “cores” from the soil, which allows air, water, and fertilizer to penetrate the root system creating a stronger, healthier lawn.

Overseeding, or adding seed to your existing lawn, creates thicker grass and helps reduce the appearance of damage and patchy spots. LawnMatters recommends overseeding at the time of aeration to ensure optimal growth conditions for the new seeds. For more information, read our guide to overseeding your lawn.
