Aeration & Seeding Pre-Service Instructions

For optimal results, we need your help.

Thank you for choosing Turf Masters for your Aeration & Seeding Service.

For optimal results, please complete the following prior to your service.

Pre-Service Instructions

  • Mow your lawn 1″-2″ in height.
  • Bag the clippings and rake out any excessive thatch.
  • If your lawn is being renovated, rake up all dead weeds and dead grass.
  • Water thoroughly.  We suggest watering one hour per zone the night before your service.
  • Mark all sprinkler heads, shallow cables, invisible fence wires, etc.
  • Make sure pets are inside and gates are unlocked.

After the aeration and seeding service is completed, your lawn will need daily attention.  The new Fescue seeds will need to stay moist.  This means some amount of watering will be necessary daily.  Because of the variances in lawns, irrigation systems and watering methods, giving an exact watering time is impossible; however, a good guideline is to never let the seeded areas become completely dry and don’t allow standing water.

Your Route Manager will provide additional information about caring for your lawn after service.  But in the meantime, here are post-service instructions for your core aeration & seeding service.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
