Overseeding (Broadcast seed)
Overseeding helps thicken the lawn and crowd out weeds. Broadcasting seed after an aeration will improve soil contact, especially in the spaces where cores are removed. Regular overseeding allows for the selection of newer seed varieties that may be more tolerant of stressors like drought, insects and disease, keeps the grass stand young and lush.

This process helps reduce compaction by mechanically removing soil cores. This will improve soil structure and allows oxygen, water, and nutrients better access to the root zones of your plants. The cores remain on the surface and should be left to break down and return to the soil as nutrients. This is also a great time to top-dress with compost, apply soil conditioners and lime if needed.

Top Dressing of Compost
An application of organic compost is typically done after the lawn is aerated and seed is broadcasted. This material introduces rich organic matter to support the beneficial microorganisms in the soil and promote seed germination by keeping new seedlings evenly moist.
Some of the most important benefits of composting are significant increases in the soil's ability to retain water, improvement in soil structure, reduction in thatch and helps to neutralize the soil's pH. It helps give your turf everything it needs to grow and thrive!
