Grass Seed and Lawn Restoration
For restoring lawns, the best natural defense against weeds is dense, thick turf.
We recommend adding new grass seed to an established lawn every year, in the spring or fall, with our sustainable blend of grass seed. This custom blend, made of primarily tall fescue, creates a dense root system that retains water and protects your grass against drought, disease, weed germination, and tough Midwest summer heat.
We begin our overseeding service by using a rake to remove all dead grass and twigs. This ensures good contact between the soil and new seed. Then, we spread our custom blend of high-quality sustainable grass seed and apply the Greenwise organic seed starter to promote germination and establish strong roots. Before we leave, we spread a half-inch layer of peat moss over the seed to protect it and keep it moist.
The most effective way to seed your lawn and increase turf density is through slice seeding. We use a machine called a slice seeder to cut vertically through your turf and into the soil, which drops seeds at the same time. This seed-to-soil contact helps the seed germinate, resulting in a faster and much higher germination rate than over seeding.
Turf aeration and soil care
Adding air to your soil—or aerating—each year is one of the best things you can do for your lawn. Aeration breaks through a thatch layer, allows roots to breathe, and makes it easier for water and nutrients to penetrate the soil. This is especially true when combined with our Greenwise PRIME Organic Soil Builder. PRIME is a calcium-based product that breaks up heavy clay soils and gives roots breathing room to grow. Aeration also combines well with seeding.
