It reduces soil compaction and enhances thatch breakdown, thus improving soil water uptake and decreasing water runoff and puddling. Core aeration allows air, water, and fertilizer to better reach the root zone. This helps stimulate root growth to create healthier, stronger turf grass.

Dethatching removes the excessive layer of debris that accumulates above the soil and below the blades of grass. An application of fertilizer, along with heavy watering after the dethatching will greatly stimulate the root growth.

Frequent moving helps a lawn resist weeds, insects and disease.

Infrequent mowing causes too much grass to be removed at one time. Infrequently mowed grass also produces a lawn that looks thin, spotty or burned. 4 Seasons Outdoors cuts grass at a 3" cutting height to promote a deeper root system.

Mulching your clippings returns valuable nutrients to your lawn.

Finely cut clippings contain approximately 80% water, 5% nitrogen, 1% phosphorous and 2% potassium. The nitrogen component of grass clippings can provide about 1/3 of the yearly nitrogen requirement of a lawn. Bagging your clippings eliminates these valuable nutrients from your lawn.

Remove clumps of grass.

Clumps of grass suffocate the grass underneath, and reduce the pleasant appearance of a fresh cut lawn.

Keep the mower blade sharp.

Sharp mower blades help your lawn grow. Dull mower blades will not only make your grass appear jagged and uneven, they will also make your lawn more susceptible to disease.

Alter the cutting pattern

If the cutting pattern remains the same or is varied infrequently, unsightly grooves will develop in your lawn.
