Want Greener Grass in the Tri-Cities? The Secret is Aeration

The grass is always greener on the other side; at least that’s what they say. If you’re looking for ways to get greener, healthier grass in the Tri-Cities, Promier Landscapes is here to provide some helpful ways to make sure that you can achieve that flourishing yard this year. If you want to avoid having patchy, weak grass, then aeration and seeding are the way to go. Aeration and seeding from Promier Landscapes will leave your yard as green and full as Neyland Stadium.


East Tennessee has a notoriously unusual climate, and aeration will keep your grass healthier and more vibrant. Aeration is a process in which a lawn aerator punctures the soil in your yard thousands of times to provide better airflow and proper drainage from and to your soil. After a couple of rainfalls, which can happen pretty quickly in Bristol, these soil plugs will fill themselves. This allows seeds to gain more nutrients and replenish themselves. Then your grass can quickly grow healthier and fuller. Premier Landscapes suggests aeration when your yard is suffering from hard compacted soil, poor drainage, unequal shading, sloping yards, worn spots of grass, areas of your yard that have recently had heavy equipment on them, and after any winter damage.


At the same time as the aeration process is occurring, your Kingsport professional landscapers at Promier Landscapes suggest that seeding is done concurrently. Promier Landscapes uses the best quality seeds, which are then spread throughout the freshly aerated soil. Any debris or dead grass will be removed, allowing the seeds an extra healthy start for your yard. There should be roughly 16 seeds per square inch of the yard so that they do not become overcrowded and negate the effects of aerating. At Promier Landscapes we use this combination of aeration and seeding to ensure your yard looks great in the season ahead.

Professional Lawn Care in East Tennessee

Promier Landscapes has been helping residents of East Tennessee since 2003. Yard work can be tedious and complicated, especially since land in the Tri-Cities falls on the USDA Hardiness Zone 7a. The purpose of hardiness zones is to show which plants can grow in various areas of the country based on climate. That means that we don’t fall in a zone that promotes the best grasses for warm or cool season grasses. In the Tri-Cities, it is best to choose between Bermuda grass, Tall Fescue, Creeping Red Fescue, Buffalo, and Centipede grasses. Other grasses can be planted and successfully can grow, but the aforementioned grasses will thrive. We can help you decide what will fit the overall appearance and needs for your yard today.

Promier Landscapes wants to help you achieve the yard of your dreams. With our help, we can ensure that you will never think the grass is greener on the other side, as in your neighbor’s side.
