Aeration pulls out small plugs of soil to break up compaction and allows vital air, water and nutrients to travel down to the roots. Overseeding fills in bare or thinning spots left behind by the stress of summer heat. Prepare your yard by mowing and watering the night before aeration and overseeding.
Scale insects damage plant tissues by sucking out the sap, robbing them of vital nutrients. When these pests attack, plant growth is stunted; leaves may develop yellow blotches; the branches may die, and some or all of the leaves may fall off. Your Atlanta lawn care professional can treat this issue with a systemic insecticide that is absorbed by a plant and kills off these pests.
