Slow release, organic lawn fertilizers benefit your soil while providing nutrients for your grass. Not only do they improve soil structure, they encourage beneficial soil microbes that attack pests and diseases. Used in combination with good maintenance practices — including aeration and proper mowing — they will make your lawn less labor and water intensive.
WHY IS AERATION NECESSARY?
Compact soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps water and fertilizer from reaching the roots.
In most home lawns, fertile topsoil may have been removed or buried during excavation of the basement or footings, forcing grass to grow in subsoil that is more compact, higher in clay content and less likely to sustain a healthy lawn.
Walking, playing and mowing will compact soil and stress lawns. Raindrops and irrigation further compact the soil, reducing large air spaces where roots readily grow. Compaction is greater on heavy clay soils than on sandy soils, and it is greatest in the upper 1 to 1 1/2 inches of soil.
Aeration can help relieve soil compaction, allowing your grass to grow deeper roots and make better use of water and fertilizer.
What can you expect after aeration?
Immediately after aeration, your lawn will be dotted with small plugs pulled from the soil. Within a week or two, they break apart and disappear into the lawn.
About 7 to 10 days after aeration, the aerification holes will be filled with white, actively growing roots – a sign that the turfgrass is receiving additional oxygen, moisture and nutrients from the soil.
On compacted soils and on lawns with slopes, you should see an immediate difference in water puddling and runoff after irrigation or rainfall. After aeration, your lawn should be able to go longer between waterings, without showing signs of wilt. With repeat aerations over time, your lawn will show enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
Remember, most lawns benefit from annual aeration. And while you shouldn’t expect miracles, especially with poor soil, lawns that receive this care will be healthier, more vigorous, easier to maintain and have fewer pest problems.
Mulch and bark tinting
GreenBelt Services uses a concentrated solution to keep ground cover, grass and landscaping looking better than new while reducing annual pine-straw and mulch cost by 25% to 50%. We will color faded mulch to look new again. Applying colorant slows the decomposition of the mulch. Available in multiple colors in order to :
- Renew mulch
- Long lasting color
- Safe for all pets, plant and people
- Non toxic
Green lawn spraying
Our green lawn spraying service will treat your turf with a colorant technology that has a long-lasting green pigment which provides color for up to 90 days. It restores the natural green color to turf during dormant periods, providing an excellent playing surface during the colder months. Our turf colorant is also used for touch-up to turf areas damaged by chemicals, fungal attacks, pet urine and pests.
