Fall Lawn Care Services

Fall will be here soon. If you haven't signed up for our 2022 Lawn Services Program, please contact your local Almstead branch to request our Fall Services. It includes:


Core Aeration + Over-Seeding

Core Aeration involves creating small holes in the soil to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the roots of the grass . Over-Seeding refers to adding grass seeds directly into existing turf. It is an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the color and density of the lawn and make it less susceptible to diseases. By core aerating and over-seeding in fall, your new grass will have several months to fill in and develop roots before winter. In spring, the roots will continue to grow as soon as the ground starts to warm. By next summer, healthy grass will be naturally crowding out the weeds.



If we also add a thin layer of compost when we seed, the seeds will have even more soil to grab onto -- and the right diet to thrive. In fact, top dressing with compost is one of the best ways to promote healthy turf, whether or not you aerate.


Almstead produces premium quality OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) Listed® Compost which is in compliance with the USDA National Organic Program. Almstead Compost is made with organic local source materials. It is a great source of nutrients for plant material. Full of beneficial microbiology that’s native to our region, compost creates a more sustainable soil system that requires fewer, if any, additional input.


At Almstead, we customize our Lawn Programs to meet the needs of our clients and their lawns. We offer traditional lawn care, fully organic programs and organic-based options. For more information please visit our website.
