Sometimes, despite your best efforts, your lawn can become thin, patchy, or completely brown. Perhaps you inherited the lawn problems of the previous homeowners, or maybe you have just been too busy to give your lawn the attention it needs. Whatever the reason, now is the time to take control of your lawn and get it back to the lush, green carpet every homeowner craves. At Portage Turf Specialists, LLC, we’re confident we can get your lawn renovated and repaired for a great summer spent outdoors.
If your lawn has become compacted and covered in thatch, aerating the soil is needed. Thatch is a layer of dead and living stems, shoots and roots, between the zone of green vegetation and the soil surface. Aeration creates holes in the lawn to allow oxygen, water, and fertilizer to penetrate the soil to reach your grassroots effectively, thus producing a healthier lawn. Left unchecked, thatch can become a breeding ground for lawn diseases, weeds, insects and grubs. Dethatching on a regular basis can even prevent the need for more expensive renovation services.
Along with aeration, overseeding is another great way to improve the health of your lawn. We use a technique called slit seeding to improve the survival rate of the seed and increase the chances of a thick, lush lawn. By creating small trenches in the soil, seeds are placed directly in the ground, which optimizes germination and improves establishment. We also spread seed over any bare patches to produce even thicker turf and reduce the need for herbicides or other chemicals.
If aeration and overseeding isn’t enough to bring your lawn back up to its former glory, a full lawn renovation might be in order. At Portage Turf, we offer a full lawn renovation program for those wishing to start from scratch, including custom-tailored slit seeding for proper lawn installation. Starting from the ground up, our natural approaches ensure a healthy, long life for all yards.
