Reducing Compaction and Finishing Landscape Projects

Our last step to putting a construction project back together is to repair the lawn areas damaged from all the construction equipment, material storage and foot traffic throughout the project. There are plenty of ways to repair a lawn after construction. Most companies will repair the damage by spreading some topsoil, seed and hay and call it a day. We like to take an extra step before seeding. We like to break up soil compaction as much as possible be seeding. What we use to break up surface compaction and creates a nice bed for grass seed is a Toro Dingo with an attachment called an Aeravator. Below is a video of the process.
