Lawn Aeration Service & Disease Treatment

CORE AERATION

Core Aeration is the removal of small cores of soil from the lawn; this allows air, moisture, and fertilizer to move down to the root zone.

Why Aerate?

Compacted soil (or “hard clay”) and heavy thatch build up are two of the greatest obstacles to a beautiful and healthy lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate watering, fertilizing, and tender loving care!

How is Core Aeration Done?

Aeration is accomplished by the use of a machine equipped with hollowed cylinders designed to penetrate and shatter the soil. Plugs of thatch and soil are pulled from the ground during this process. The plunging action of the cylinders into the ground opens up the soil – allowing the grass plants to breathe thereby promoting deeper, healthier roots.

When is the best time to Core Aerate my lawn?

The ideal time to core aerate is between late August and November. Aerating in the fall enhances root growth responses and improves spring green up and growth. A home lawn should be core aerated every other year.

LIME TREATMENT

Although, soil pH sounds confusing and scientific, it is directly related to the amount of soil nutrients available to the grass and plants in your lawn.  Lime treatment involves applying limestone to regulate soil acidity and bring pH closer to optimal levels.  This improves nutrient availability and increases the turf’s response from fertilizer applications. Fairway Green, Inc provides all of its customers with a free pH test in the spring and fall of each year. Even though our tests are excellent indicators, for an exact pH reading, we recommend sending a soil sample to a lab. Fairway Green, Inc can take and send your soil sample to the lab for a nominal charge. Our recommendations for lime treatment are based on the results of these tests.

Fairway Green, Inc offers lime treatment most of the season.

SEEDING

If your lawn is thin or bare, whether it’s due to poor establishment from the start or recent problems, you should consider seeding. From total overseeding of thin or bare lawns, our combination of proper timing, use of high quality seeds, and a superior seeding technique allows Fairway Green, Inc to offer you a competitively priced, guaranteed seeding job.

Seeding Time

Experience has shown the prime time to plant turf grass is in late August through early October.

Using Quality Seeds

Our blend of Bluegrass, Perennial Rye, and Fescues were chosen on the basis of research done by the leading universities in New Jersey. We have one blend for sunny locations and another for those areas that are primarily in the shade. In either case, the seeds we use on your lawn are vigorous, weed free, and government inspected.

LAWN DISEASE TREATMENT: PREVENTATIVE DISEASE CONTROL

Diseases are one of the most devastating problems of turf grasses. The most effective control is proper maintenance practices combined with well-timed preventative fungicide treatments. Four treatments, timed to be done during the growing season, using a combination of broad spectrum fungicides, offer the best control for most diseases. Our lawn disease treatments are also offered individually on an as-needed basis. Early detection is vital. Follow-up treatments may be needed.

Most common lawn diseases:

  • Brown Patch
  • Summer Patch
  • Dollar Spot
  • Red Thread
  • Leaf Spot
