Core Aeration

The most beneficial lawn care service for your turf

Core aeration

Core aeration is the process of mechanically removing soil plugs from the lawn in order to relieve soil compaction and improve the ability of the roots to expand deeper into the soil.

This method is generally recognized as the best way to allow greater amounts of air, water, and fertilizer to reach the root zone. Lawn aeration results in the stimulation of root growth leading to healthier, stronger grass.

Over time, soil naturally becomes compacted causing grass to grow slowly, lack vigor, or stop growing all together. Aerating is one of the best curative and preventative maintenance services you can have done to your lawn and should be part of your annual routine.

Typically, aeration is performed in the fall, but may be necessary to perform in the spring as well. Seriously compacted lawns may need aeration two or three times a year. At AJ’s Lawn Care and Property Services we provide core aeration to keep your lawn at its healthiest and looking its best.

Hydro Seeding

Hydro seeding

Hydro seeding is an application process in which seed, fertilizer, mulch and water are mixed together and applied over prepared soil. The seed coverage is thick and consistent. It’s also more resistant to disease and requires less watering than other types of turf installation.

In addition, the chances of erosion with hydro-seeding are less likely than with normal seeding. Hydro seeding is a cost effective way to enhance your landscaping and achieve a lush, green lawn with far less prep work and hassle than DIY seeding methods.


Unlike typical hand broadcast seeding applications, hydro seeding works fast and provides uniform, dense coverage while combining all the important nutrients required to give your lawn a healthy start.  By following our lawn care instructions, your lawn will be ready to cut, and enjoy within weeks.

At AJ’s Lawn Care and Property Services, we provide quality hydro seeding service that will result in a durable, lasting, beautiful lawn for years to come. We strive to prevent the loss of soil in the landscape, as well as to create beauty.

With our plantings, we hope to encourage a strong net of roots to bind loose soil and a dense canopy of foliage to break the impact of falling water.

In New York, the planting season can occur from April to November. Contact us with any questions or to request a quote.
