Plug It Core Aeration, Dethatching, and Overseeding Services

Let your lawn Breathe!

About me image
Why do I do this?  I started this business to serve the homeowner who doesn't have the time or means to rent the equipment from the local rental store.  Driving to the rental store, loading the equipment, servicing your lawn, and returning the equipment to the rental store is a hassle and inconvenience!  Finding a lawncare company that will do this type of service in a timely manner is hard to find and often way too expensive.  

Why aerate, dethatch, or overseed? Core aeration is the single most effective way to revitalize your lawn and breathe new life into it. Core aeration reduces soil compaction and thatch, but sometimes the thatch is too thick. In those cases, using a power rake (dethatching a.k.a "thatching") can be very effective in removing the thatch. If your lawn is thinning or has bare spots, overseeding your lawn can be a great way to have a full, thick, lawn.  The illustration at the right explains the basic need for aeration.

A statement about MOSS!!! (my kryptonite)!  My core business model is "lawn maintenance" not  "lawn renovation".  If you have neglected your lawn and have an over abundance of moss, then it is probably better to start from scratch and install an entirely new lawn.  Every PNW lawn has some moss, so kill it with a moss killer or a mixture of white vinegar and water.  It may take multiple applications to finally conquer it, but you will be happy with the results.  My equipment is not designed to remove moss, however it is much easier to dethatch dead moss out of a lawn that has been treated with moss killer.

A statement about overseeding! It is imperative that you manage your lawn after an overseeding service.  I cannot guarantee that your lawn will grow unless you are diligent in managing your lawn in the next three-to-four weeks after the service. If your lawn is not growing after you have done your due diligence, then I would expect some feedback from my customers. I am using a Lesco brand seed specifically designed for overseeding Pacific Northwest lawns.  If it's not working then I need to know.

Core Aeration

Core Aeration is a professional lawn care service that focuses on improving the health and vitality of your grass. By using a specialized machine, we create small holes in the soil, allowing for better absorption of water, nutrients, and oxygen. This process helps to break up compacted soil, reduce thatch buildup, and promote stronger root growth. With my Core Aeration service, you can expect a greener, healthier lawn that is better equipped to withstand environmental stressors and pests.

Dethatching is a professional service that helps restore the health and appearance of lawns by removing excess thatch. Thatch is a layer of dead grass, leaves, and other organic matter that can build up on the surface of the soil over time. When it becomes too thick, it can prevent water, nutrients, and air from reaching the roots of your turfgrass. Our dethatching service utilizes specialized equipment to carefully remove this layer and promote better grassroots development.

Overseeding is a proven technique used by lawn care professionals to revive and restore tired, patchy, or lackluster lawns. By spreading a new layer of grass seeds over your existing lawn, overseeding promotes healthy grass growth, improves the overall density of your lawn, and helps to fill in any bare or thin spots. This service is particularly beneficial for lawns that have been damaged by harsh weather, pests, or excessive foot traffic. With overseeding, you can enjoy a fuller, greener, and more beautiful lawn that will enhance the curb appeal of your property.

Starter Fertilizer/Moss Killer Application

Starter fertilizer is needed after overseeding to ensure root development and absorption of water and nutrients. Moss killer....kills moss! I use Ferrous Sulfate which is basically 20% Iron (Fe).
