Green Landscaping Compost Seeding Landscaping Nashville

This is a great green landscaping idea for people who live in the Nashville area. In Nashville our soil is generally terrible. Limestone pieces usually litter the soil and where it is not lime it is usually clay and compacted at that. Well there is a cure — sort of. At least there is a prescription the Doctor has told me about. First Core Aerate, Core Aeration is when you punch holes in the soil by using a machine to dig up small plugs. Yes this process leaves your yard a mess with little mud pluggs all over the place. The purpose is to get oxygen and other airborn nutrients to the root zone and thatch area better of your grass plants. Ok the seccond reason to do this is so that when you seed ( we seed every year here ) your small grass seed will fall into the hole and be surrounded by a warm blanket of air and moisture that at the surface it may not have. Ground temperatures play a huge roll in helping the seed to germinate and establish properly. Well now you have made holes in the yard and your seed is all over as well now your going to get some Aged compost. Aged compost has aged to the point where it doesn’t heat up quickly anymore and it is great food for beneficial organisms as well as a mild fertilizer. Spread 1″ of aged compost all over the whole yard. The results are astounding.

Your seed germinates faster, grows healthier, and makes a beautiful yard. As long as you water and do the other appropriate things like mow when appropriate. A surprise  happens to the soil as well. These tiny little worms called nematodes will mix the compost and the clay together while producing a enzyme and other excretions that plants love. This is changing the composition of your soil slowly.
