A Healthy Lawn Need FertilizationWhen it comes to lawn care in Massachusetts, there are so many industry words thrown around- organic compost, aeration, irrigation, fertilization. It can be challenging to keep up with it all when you’re not working in the industry every day. AllGreen offers many services you might not even be aware of or would have thought about investing in. Slice seeding is an excellent technique for your lawn, and we want to tell you a little more about it:

What is slice seeding?

To put it simply, it’s a machine used to slice into the soil to create channels which it then deposits grass seed into the channels. The reason people utilize this method is it puts the seed directly into the ground instead of on top as you might with other seeding methods. The best season for slice seeding in New England is the fall because of the reduced live weeds, the mild daytime weather, and cool nights.

What are its benefits?

Because you’re placing the seed directly into the soil, you are increasing the chance of germination. Not every seed you place in your yard will flourish and grow, but you are certainly helping your lawn by completing this specific service. The results? A much more full, luscious plot of grass in the spring and summer seasons.
