A beautiful and healthy-looking lawn is every homeowner’s desire however, you must maintain your lawn with some specific actions before you can achieve that. Two of these actions include; aerating and overseeding.
You may have been at a golf course or a neighbor’s lawn and seen perfect little holes in the ground. That is from aeration work.
Aeration is the process of creating a tiny passage in a lawn’s soil which helps to break up the soil and allow water, air, and nutrients to filter effectively to the root area of the grass. Aeration is mostly needed in places with hard and compacted soil or heavy clay soil types. Soils like this usually prevent an adequate quantity of nutrients, water, and oxygen from getting to the root of the soil where they are most needed. There are two successful methods a lawn can be aerated. The first one is by pulling out the plugs or “Coring” the grass and soil and the second technique is by slicing deep cuts or “Spiking”. Either of these two methods allow the roots to get sufficient water, air, and nutrients they require to grow healthy.
Aeration and overseeding usually work together. After you aerate your lawn and it slowly starts to recover, you may still notice that your lawn has a few bare patches or looks thinner. This can make your outdoor area look dull and sparse. It can also serve as a host for pests, diseases and in the long run, will definitely encourage weeds. This is when overseeding comes into play because it fills those patches up.
Overseeding simply is placing seeds over your already recovering grass in order to encourage new additional growth and improve the thickness of the turf.

LAWN CARE AFTER AERATION AND OVERSEEDING
Most homeowners think it’s all about planting new seeds in order to have a full and beautiful lawn. But to be clear, watering your turf is as important as planting because your turf will not grow if it is not getting enough water or other nutrients for that matter. An overseeded lawn can be fully established in eight weeks or less. Proper watering is very critical for a successful overseeding. Here are watering tips for every homeowner:
Right after overseeding, water your lawn heavily in order to wash the grass seeds into the slits or holes. For the first fourteen days, water lightly on a daily basis. After germination has taken place, water minimally, but enough to allow the soil to get deeply soaked with water in order to reach the roots. After the new grass has been established, water normally.
