Initially a yard is rough graded by a high-lift or a skid-loader in order to get the proper drainage away from structures and to establish a grade. It leaves track marks and rough dirt clods that need to be graded down and pulverized to properly prepare a yard for seeding or sod.
Grading is often completed for the purpose of creating landscaping elements. Its primary purpose is to provide a smooth and final grade for seeding or sodding. In addition, it can improve drainage and protect the land and your home from water and to reduce erosion.
Seeding can increase the lushness of your lawn. Often areas will need to be seeded or reseeded.
Adding sod or turf to a yard can quickly improve the look of your landscaping and often has the benefit of improving any issues with soil erosion. By using the large rolls of sod, there is a minimal amount of seams, resulting in a more finished looking yard in the end.
Soil often gets compacted and can make it difficult for water and nutrients to penetrate the ground. Core Aeration can relieve the compaction and allow air and seed to have direct contact with the soil.
Using a slit-seeding machine, dirt is scored in lines and seeds are dropped into dirt to help maximize depth of seed planting. By slit-seeding in two different directions we are able to hide the otherwise visible lines and thicken the lawn with a more complete coverage.
