What is a Lawn Tune-Up?
A lawn tune-up is combining aerating, overseeding and starter fertilizer.
- Promotes deep vigorous root growth.
- Provides Individual germinating chambers for new seedlings.
- Improves air to the roots and promotes deeper root growth
- Breaks up hard clay soil
- Saves on your watering bill
- Stimulates beneficial microorganisms
- Helps the seed germinate and become established
- Creates a lush, thick, healthy lawn
- Spring is a great time for overseeding.
- I use only the highest-quality Golf Course Fairway Grass Seed.
- Overseeding pays off with a thicker, more vibrant and healthy lawn.
- Excellent choice for rapid establishment, disease resistance and traffic tolerance.
- We use a special 60% slow release Starter.
- Nourishes and protects your new seedlings and provides excellent lawn color throughout the season.
- Promotes deep root growth with good color, while limiting turf growth.
- Will not stain cement as most fertilizers do.
- No herbicides, insecticides, or fungicides so it is not harmful to animals.
- Will give your lawn good color without making it grow too fast.

Our Best Value!
- Lawn Aerating promotes deep root growth
Allows seed-to-soil contact
Breaks up heavy clay and gets the fertilizer to the root zone easier.
We use only the highest quality golf course seed grown specifically for Western Washington lawns. An investment in over-seeding pays off with a beautiful lawn.
- ?Starter Fertilizer
We use a starter fertilizer with 60% slow release or pay a little more ($20) and have 5-4-5 composted organic fertilizer with rock minerals.
It is a three step process involving: Deep core aeration to open the soil, 60% slow release starter fertilizer to broadcast nutrients and food, and spreading seed over the primed lawn.
The Lawn Tune-up is the most cost-effective and inexpensive preventative maintenance you can offer your lawn. It is commonly effective to repair winter or summer lawn damage, to keep your newly sodded lawn thick and healthy by promoting deeper root development, or to simply maintain the healthy lawn you may already have established.
Spring and fall are the best times for optimal seed growing temperatures (typically between 60-80 degrees). I recommend a Tune-up twice a year.
If you have large bare spots of soil or have already thatched your lawn, your grass will require extra seed not included in the standard Tune-Up price.
I suggest reading my detailed instructions on Your Newly Seeded Lawn.
- Cut you lawn down low, because you wont be able to cut it for several weeks after the Tune-Up.
- Mark sprinkler heads, oil tank caps and (shallow) cable TV lines.
The seed needs to germinate so waiting at least 3 weeks will give it time to establish roots. Make sure to cut higher than normal, 3-4 inches, as the seed could be germinating in two different stages.
