It’s almost Christmas, and by now you have probably received a proposal for Aeration and Winter Rye if you have turf. Grass areas have many benefits: a place for kids and pets to play, it serves to increase humidity and reduce temperatures, it can also improve your property value. However, many grasses in San Diego such as Bermuda or St Augustine (very common turf) look more like this as they go dormant for the winter.
One solution is to install winter rye. This is a temporary grass for winter time. For San Diego, the coldest months are December-February. We recommend aeration and winter rye in November. You can read more about the benefits of aeration here, but for this article we are talking about the benefits of winter rye.
Winter rye is a fast growing, deep rooted grass seed that creates a thick mat over the soil with a variety of benefits. Some of these include:
· Green grass all year long
· Prevents soil erosion
· Prevents erosion of nutrients
We want your turf to look stunning. This includes a full regiment of fertilizers, weed, insect, and disease control, water management, and proper trimming; this is all included in normal maintenance contracts. Aeration and over seeding go a long way to care for your turf areas, and give your property the amazing benefits of beautiful green grass all year long.
