Lawn aeration is one of those lawn care services that most people either have not heard of or are not familiar with. However, if you play golf or know someone who does either you have seen the benefits of core aeration or know someone you can ask.

Overseeding

Do you have bare or thin spots on your lawn? Is your lawn less vibrant, with lackluster grass that is a light shade of green, or even yellow or brown in places? Here in the greater Raleigh area, fescue lawns can experience stress during the hot North Carolina summers and will become thin, dry, or brittle by the time September rolls around again. After the aeration process, we will disburse high-quality seed to create fresh grass that will give your lawn a more youthful appearance. The key to survival for Raleigh fescue lawns is to be overseeded in the Fall in order to repair and replenish tall fescue grasses. We will insure your lawn has the proper programs instituted to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to thrive. We will revive your Raleigh area lawn and bring it back to a thick, vibrant green carpet you desire. 

Overseeding is simply spreading new grass over your lawn to fill in those thinner areas or bare patches. It is common for grass to become thinner with age, and it does not always rejuvenate new blades on its own. Sprinkling seed over your entire lawn can make a difference in the thickness and bring it back to its youthful glory. However, it is important to prepare your lawn for the seeds to ensure they take hold and flourish with new grass for your lawn. Top dressing before overseeding is beneficial to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to grow the new seeds and feed the existing grass. At Dorsey Lawn & Landscape, we will analyze your lawn to determine the best lawn care service program to bring it back to health, including using overseeding and top dressing. Top dressing involves adding a light layer of compost, topsoil, sand or a combination of organic materials over a lawn. This adds nutrients to the soil to help nourish the grass for better health and appearance. Top dressing before overseeding adds loose soil and nutrients for the grass seed to improve the percent of seeds that sprout.

Our experience servicing many high level golf courses helps us with the knoledge to perform the best services for your yard including top dressing, overseeding or both to revive your lawn back to optimum health.

What To Expect

Double Pass Aeration & Seeding


When aerating your lawn we always perform “double pass aeration”. We first aerate your lawn in one direction and then we will aerate it once more perpendicular to the previous aeration direction, this assures that we are pulling as many cores per sq. ft. as possible.

Quality Equipment


We use stand on aerator’s that pull cores using hydraulic pressure not a rolling drum, this assures that we are able to pull 3-4 inch cores consistently, this is especially important in the Triangle area where the soil type is pre-dominantly a tough to penetrate clay soil type.

Quality Seed


We use only the Highest Quality Blue Tag Certified seed, each year the seed is formulated specifically for our region using a Tri-Blend Tall Fescue Seed.
