Grow your lawn thicker and faster with various seeding techniques, sod installation, and core aeration services in Erie County and Niagara County, NY communities.
After a hot summer, your lawn may show signs of distress from drought, heat, insect infestation, weeds, or increased foot traffic on your lawn. Core aeration, power seeding, and hydroseeding are all options for a healthy lawn that may be struggling due to a number of issues with the soil or grass itself. At Buffalo Lawn & Pest Control, we offer these options to our customers in Buffalo and the Western New York region (Erie County and Niagara County). There are many reasons that aeration and seeding are needed. Let our professional lawn care providers assess your lawn and help determine what will boost your grass growth!
Hydroseeding is when we create a combination of grass seed, along with additives such as fertilizer and lime, then spray it onto the ground. This process is fast and allows for even distribution of the seeds and nutrients. Hydroseeding works great for areas that are large, on hillsides, or bare ground with no grass at all. Besides growing grass quickly and efficiently, hydroseeding also helps with soil erosion and is more cost-effective than other seeding methods.
Power (Slice) Seeding
Power seeding, also known as slice seeding, is a mechanical process that cuts narrow slices through the existing sod and directly plants the new seed into the ground. We recommend this treatment for spots that are completely dead on a lawn or for bare spots throughout the lawn. This technique can also be utilized over an entire lawn.
Power seeding eliminates the need for:
- Stripping the existing soil
- Tilling the yard
- Providing straw cover
Overall, slice seeding provides essential seed-to-soil contact, which results in increased germination and growth to those problem areas in your lawn.
With sod installation, you can have instant gratification for a completely new lawn, or sections of your lawn that need repair. Sod is actually turf that is grown elsewhere, then cut up and transplanted in your yard. When the sod is cut from the field, about 2 inches of roots and soil are left attached.
New sod does require a certain amount of care, just like seeding, but you don't have to wait for it to grow. With new sod, you're sure to receive healthy turf with no weeds or pests.
Core aeration is a process that uses a device to punch holes and remove the cores of the grass and soil, which allows air, water, and nutrients to access the roots of the grass. Core aeration is a great option for revitalizing the growth of your entire lawn.
The benefits of core aeration include:
- The best treatment for controlling thatch
- Loosens up compacted soil
- Allows water and nutrients to reach roots of turf easier and quicker
- Done annually, aeration helps keep your lawn and soil in excellent condition
Core aeration is most beneficial for your lawn when you perform it yearly. Routine aeration is a key component to maintaining both a healthy lawn and healthy soil.
We'll help you decide the best option to revitalize your lawn.
