In order to get a lush lawn, you need to do more than simply watering the grass — you need to fertilize to give your seeds all of the nutrients they need to grow richly, thickly, fully, and healthy. You also need to ensure that you aerate your lawn so that the fertilizer can penetrate the soil and reach the seeds to feed them.
Based on our geographical location, most (if not all) of us in Southern California have warm-season grass — this makes the fertilizing window smaller and therefore easier to deal with. The simple rule to follow is to avoid fertilizing in the hot summer months as it will dry out quickly and be a waste of time, effort, and money. Fertilize your lawn in the cooler spring and fall months so they nutrients have a fighting chance to penetrate the soil and reach the roots.
When fertilizing, you also need to worry about existing, or potential, weeds and how to get rid of them; fertilizer feeds weeds as well as grass and you’ll need to make sure you add in a solution to succeed at weed control while also promoting grass growth.

What Our Customers Say
“I highly recommend Aerations Plus. I had gone through 2 gardeners for the last three years and no one was able to solve my lawn problem. Joel and his team did a superb job. The lawn is now green, thick and thriving. I commend Joel for his after service customer care. He calls to check in and sends people to check in order to the keep the lawn in good condition. I will now use Aerations Plus regularly for lawn maintenance.” — Victoria D., Encino, CA
“My backyard needed a complete overhaul which included replacing broken water sprinklers and pipes, repair of some pre-existing sprinklers, a new control box; tilling, laying down clean top soil and seeding. Joel is very knowledgeable and professional. His hand picked crew are knowledgeable and get the job done. There was a slight problem and Joel sent a crew person out immediately and the problem was taken care of. My grass is growing and I couldn’t be happier. The fee was fair and reasonable.” — Mindy L., Encino, CA
