Client Testimonials

What Your Neighbors Are Saying

RDS has done a great job on our lawn. In just one year we have seen a vast improvement. Knowing that it takes time and a few years of treatment to see the best results, we are very happy with the results so far. Also the pest treatment allows us to be in the yard without the worry of mosquitos and other pests. Highly recommend.

- Brad Huffstetler

RDS is best in class. I have been using the RDS team for over a decade to treat, aerate and seed my lawn. It takes time, but Aaron's formula for weed control and fertilization has my grass in tip top shape. I would highly recommend RDS to anyone wanting to have the nicest lawn in their neighborhood.

- Jason Barger

These guys are awesome. Our lawn (and many in our community) look great...like a well manicured golf course. We have had a great experience with them and they have almost repaired the damage that was caused by one of their competitors. They are responsive to concerns and take ownership of their products and procedures. They are a local company and know the soil very well.

Liquid Aeration

Aeration is greatly beneficial to your yard, regardless of what kind of shape your lawn is in. While core aeration is a great option for lawns that are continuously struggling to grow, liquid aeration is another option for lawns that are doing pretty well but could use a little extra help. If you want to utilize our aeration services and your lawn is at least 75% healthy, we will perform our liquid aeration service. 

Though liquid aeration is performed quite differently from core aeration, the result of both procedures is to maximize nutrient absorption for a greener and lusher lawn. Liquid aeration does not penetrate the soil as deeply, but it covers more ground than core aeration. The process involves spraying a mixture of safe and effective chemicals that will loosen up the soil. As the topsoil is loosened, nutrients will be able to spread more freely and deeply throughout your lawn.

RDS Lawn Care Services always promises the most thorough job of any lawn care company in Gastonia. Both of our aeration services will be applied using a two-step process. After going over your entire lawn and ensuring that no area of your yard has been neglected, we will go over the entire process a second time, just because we want to go that extra mile for you. RDS promises the best results and peace of mind that you will not find anywhere else!

Core Aeration

Gastonia, NC is a wonderful community with an all-American feel. From the Downtown Gastonia Historic District to the neighborhoods of Robinson Oaks and Robinwood Village, beautiful landscapes can be seen around nearly every house and building in the city. People are proud of their homes and put in a lot of work to keep their lawns in the best shape possible. There is nothing more frustrating than pouring out your heart, soul, and sweat into your lawn care, only to find that none of it achieves the results you want. If this sounds familiar to you and you are ready to see a real difference, our core aeration service could be the answer to your problems. 

Core aeration is the process of removing tiny plugs of thatch and soil in order to help your lawn breathe and absorb nutrients. Thatch is the buildup of organic matter and debris under the surface of the soil. If the buildup of thatch is too dense, nutrients will not be able to fully penetrate down to the roots where they are needed. As we go over your lawn with our core aeration equipment, we will pull out small plugs from the soil, which leave behind tiny holes in your lawn. These holes provide a place for water and nutrients to flow through and down to the roots for a healthier, stronger lawn. The plugs we remove can be left on top of your lawn to decompose and be reabsorbed by the soil, or you can rake them up and dispose of them. As your lawn absorbs more nutrients, you will start to see the full, green lawn you have always wanted.

Core aeration also allows your lawn to decompress. Gastonia is a friendly city, and many people enjoy outside gathering in the North Carolina sunshine. Over time, the more foot traffic your lawn gets, the more compacted it will become. Sunlight, water, fertilizers, and natural nutrients will all struggle to be fully absorbed by your lawn if it is too compacted, resulting in grass that starts to die. The small holes created by the core aeration process allow your yard to breathe and decompress. Think of it as a stress-relief service for your lawn; it has been put under a lot of pressure over the years, and we just want to help it take a moment to breathe and get back to full health. We guarantee our core aeration service will result in the happiest and healthiest lawn in Gastonia!

Overseeding And Additional Services

There are several services that are often used in tandem with aeration, perhaps none more important than overseeding. As the aeration process opens up your lawn and readies it to receive the nutrients it needs, there is no better time to lawn down seed. Seeds that are laid down after aeration will have the best chance of germinating and filling in those embarrassing bare spots on your lawn. We also offer fertilization and weed control, as well as lawn disease control, to ensure that you have all your lawn care needs met. Ask us about how overseeding and our other services can benefit your lawn.

Additional Services

While we do offer the best new lawn seeding service in Gastonia, it is important to remember that this service should only be used when starting a new lawn. For lawns that are already well-established but just need a little extra seeding, check out our overseeding service. We will come out to your home and apply seed only where your lawn is in need of some help. Call us at (704) 822-1625 to find out what else RDS Lawn Care Services can do for your lawn!
