Fall is approaching and that can only mean one thing: it is time to put the lawn back together after this horrible summer and Green Head Turf Systems can help.  How you might ask?  Good question.  Green Head offers a full range of renovation services to help restore your lawn.  Weather your lawn is planted in blue grass, fescue or anything in between, there are several ways to accomplish this task:

Core Aeration and Overseeding

The first option to restore your lawn is by core aeration and overseeding. This is the process of pulling plugs from the soil and then seeding those areas.  Core aeration also helps to break up compacted soil. In addition, the holes left by the aeration creates pockets for water, fertilizer, and grass seed to infiltrate the ground, which means your grass can develop healthier root systems. A deeper and healthier root system can then help your lawn become more tolerant to hot and dry weather.

Verticutting and Overseeding

This is similar to row cops in that a slit is cut into the soil and the seed lays in that slit.  Verticutting is the process of removing thatch build up on your lawn, and the resulting slit creates a nice seed bed for your grass seed. When you combine verticutting with overseeding, you can revitalize your lawn because it fills in areas that are week and thin. This translates into a thick, lush lawn.

Complete Lawn Restoration

If you really wanted to get down and dirty it is possible to kill the entire lawn and start from scratch using all of the techniques of aeration, verticutting and overseeding.  This is also beneficial if your lawn is overcome with weeds or invasive grasses. This is also the proper method if you want to change the type of grass on your lawn: i.e. switching from zoysia to tall fescue.
