Slit Seeding

The major benefit in slit seeding over conventional seeding is that you get direct seed to soil contact and it allows for a clean approach without disrupting your existing turf.  Slit seeding can help improve thin areas of lawn, bare spots, weedy areas, and the overall appearance of your lawn.  A Slit seeder is a machine that slices even rows into the soil /existing turf, and drops grass seed directly into those rows to improve the growth rate. With our slice seeding service we also apply a starter fertilizer of slow release nutrients. The key to a successful slit seeding is the quality of seed, fertilizer, and adequate water. A good water schedule must be part of a successful slit seeding. Temporary irrigation systems are available for rent to help maintain adequate watering and low maintenance.

A slit seeding service is offered in conjunction with other services,  to improve results.  A great program we are offering includes a slit seeding, with applying an organic compost mixture over the seed to aid in the growth process.  The mixture promotes extra nutrients, holds moisture better, and is an all-natural material.

Slit seeding is also recommended after a dethatching service to improve bare areas where the thatch has been removed.
