The Best Choice for Lawn Aeration Across Canada

Transform your lawn with Enviro Masters' core aeration and overseeding service. Our program opens up the soil to air, water, and nutrients, offering faster results without the use of chemicals for a thicker and richer lawn.

When you partner with our team of experienced lawn technicians:

  • Evaluation: Our local technicians will start with a comprehensive, free yard inspection, focusing on areas with weak, brown grass, bare patches, or standing water.
  • Mechanical Slit-Seeding:  "Over 90% of grass seed spread by regular broadcast spreaders die with no soil contact!” Our Slit-Seeding Service is the Ideal Solution for Thin Lawns or to Repair Bare Patches Over-seeding can be a real waste if not done properly. A slit-seeder cuts fine furrows in the soil and deposits the seed in the soil increasing seed germination to over 90%. This eliminates the need (and mess) of applying topdressing to work the seed into the soil. It quickly gives you a fuller more plush lawn and is less expensive than replacing the old turf or re-sodding.
  • Aeration: We will use a core/plug aerator to strategically create thousands of small holes in your lawn, loosening the soil and allowing for easy water and fertilizer absorption in the root zone.
  • Overseeding: We'll start the overseeding process by directly planting specific types of grass seed local to your area into your turf. This works by filling in any gaps or thin areas, promoting a denser and more uniform lawn. 
  • Germination: Thanks to prepping the area with mechanical core aeration, the new grass seed will germinate and establish itself effortlessly, blending seamlessly with your existing turf and paying dividends in the spring.

How Does Our Core Aeration Service Work?

Our core aeration service is most effective for lawns that experience heavy foot traffic, excessive thatch coverage (over 1 inch thick), or are grown in heavy soils such as clay-dominant soil types. This service can be done once a year or twice a year, preferably during the growing season, to ensure the best results. 

Aerating the soil allows for better water movement and air penetration into the root system. This promotes a healthier lawn and enhances its ability to absorb nutrients without the use of chemicals. 

Other benefits of lawn aeration include:

  • Reduced soil compaction and thatch buildup.
  • Stronger, deeper roots for a more resilient lawn.
  • Decreased heat and drought stress.
  • Reduced water runoff and puddling.
  • Stronger resistance to destructive lawn insects.
  • Helps breakdown thatch.

Ideally, aeration is immediately followed by seeding to further improve the density and appearance of your lawn.

Why Should You Overseed After Aerating Your Lawn?

Pairing lawn aeration and overseeding can bring significant improvements to the health and appearance of your lawn. 

  • The holes left by the aerator serve as perfect spots for the seeds to settle, providing them with a protected environment.
  • Unlike seeds scattered on the surface, these seeds in the aeration holes are shielded from traffic and the harsh sun, ensuring better chances of growth.
  • With the added moisture below the soil surface, the seeds receive an extra boost, promoting faster and healthier germination.
  • The new grass plants that sprout from these aerator holes have the benefit of a protected crown, allowing them to establish a strong root system.

By investing in overseeding, you can achieve a fuller and lusher lawn, enhancing the overall appearance of your outdoor space.

The Advantages of Mechanical Slit-Seeding

Did you know that, when using a traditional broadcast spreader, over 90% of grass seeds die without ever making contact with the soil? That's why we use mechanical slit-seeding instead! Whether you have thin lawns or bare patches, our service offers a great lower-cost alternative to topdressing or re-sodding.

With just one pass of our slit-seeding machine, you'll enjoy a range of benefits:

  • First, the machine will cut mini furrows into the soil, allowing the seed to have direct contact with the earth.
  • Then, it will drop the seeds into these furrows, ensuring proper placement.
  • Finally, it will brush the seeds down, giving them the optimal conditions for germination.

And the best part is that our service leaves your existing lawn intact! So why wait? Give your grass the best chance for success with our mechanical slit-seeding service.
