When is the Best Time to Aerate & Overseed Your Lawn?

Affordable Fall Lawn Care from Brennan LandscapingWisconsin aeration and overseeding services

Fall is the best time to introduce new seed into your Wisconsin lawn through aeration and over-seeding. Brennan Landscaping offers a variety of commercial and residential lawn maintenance services. Our experienced landscaping professionals can aerate your lawn with a walk-behind device, which creates holes about half an inch thick and 3 to 4 inches long into your soil.

Aeration allows water, fertilizer and seeds to easily reach the roots of your grass. This process leaves behind small bits of dirt left from creating all the holes. Our landscaping professionals can pick up these soil plugs or if you choose to leave them they’re easily mowed over once dry.
