Lawn Aerating in Gretna


Welcome to EcoScapes lawn aeration and overseeding, serving residential and commercial clients throughout Gretna, NE.


Aeration is important to maintaining a healthy lawn. Next to fertilizing your turf on a regular basis, aerating is the most beneficial thing you can do to improve the overall health of your lawn. For many homeowners, aerating their lawns to relieve soil compaction and enhance grass growth is a regular annual task. Almost every lawn in Nebraska can benefit from aeration when it’s timed well and done properly.


Heavy clay soils such as found in Nebraska, become very compacted over time. Clay soil particles are small and tightly packed with little space for water, air, and root movement. We’ve all felt this kind of “hard” soil underfoot, and turf grass has a tough time growing deep roots when it has to fight so hard for room to grow. Core aeration services allow the soil to “relax”, or expand, which means roots can penetrate deeper and further. Over time, this results in soil that is softer and more open. Lawn aerating or core aeration, is one of the best things you can do to improve and grow your lawn.


Grass roots need a combination of air, water, and nutrients to grow thick, deep and strong. When soil becomes compacted, even slightly, it restricts the flow of the essentials that support thicker, healthier turf growth. A layer of compacted soil just 1/4 to 1/2 inches thick can make a significant difference in the health and beauty of your lawn. Aeration creates holes down into the soil to alleviate compaction so air, water and nutrients can reach grass roots.


Aerating your lawn provides many benefits including:


  • Releases gases from the soil and letting oxygen in.
  • Increases the amount of water absorbed by the soil.
  • Stimulates new root growth.
  • Helps control harmful thatch buildup.
  • Allows nutrients to be absorbed faster and directly at the root.
  • Relieves soil compaction caused by traffic and equipment.
  • Reduces water runoff on slopes and hills.

Low fertility, combined with summer stresses, diseases and compaction dampens the ability of turf grass to naturally ‘fill-in’ or thicken your lawn. These stresses create many bare areas, some very small and some quite large. The overseeding process thickens the lawn by placing new seed, and ultimately new grass plants, into these bare areas.


Overseeding right after aeration gives the best seed to soil contact, helps hold the seed in place, and also helps to provide a moist environment for the seed to germinate. We recommend aerating and overseeding during the fall for best possible results!


Fallen leaves can potentially smother the new grass so you’ll want to make sure they are cleaned up. Leaves can prevent oxygen and sunlight from reaching the new turf so you may want to consider a fall cleanup to remedy the issue. You can 


Aeration and overseeding are just two of the many highly beneficial lawn services that we provide to help maintain the healthy, thick appearance of your lawn. We also recommend a fall clean up during this time of year as leaves can prevent oxygen and sunlight from reaching the newly planted grass seed.
