Lawn Aerations

In the quest for a healthy and beautiful lawn, aeration ranks as one of the top best-kept secrets. Core aeration reduces your lawn’s thatch layer by poking holes in the lawn and extracting small plugs of soil. Thatch is a layer of dead grass matter (roots, stems, etc.) that builds up between the soil surface and the grass’s green growth. Some is normal and healthy for your lawn but thick thatch can be a breeding ground for disease. Aerating regularly helps to promote good root health and allows water, air and nutrients to reach your lawn’s root zone. ​Heavy traffic areas will greatly benefit from a regular aeration. Compacted soil suppresses root growth and grass grows less, thins and eventually dies. Signs that indicate your lawn may need aerated are:

  • water puddling on lawn after rain or sprinkler runs
  • thatch layer thicker than one-half inch
  • difficulty sticking a screwdriver into soil
  • heavy clay soil
  • thin, patchy or bare grass
  • compacted soil in high traffic areas
  • you have never aerated before or it has been several years

What It Includes:

  • Spring Aeration : Recommended Between February and May
  • Fall Aeration: Recommended Between August and November
  • Most lawns only need a once a year aeration, but smaller high traffic lawns may need a spring and fall aeration

The single greatest benefit from aerating is that compacted soil becomes loose which aids in proper nutrient, oxygen and water distribution to the lawn’s root zone. Healthy and deep lawn roots will help enable your lawn to withstand summer heat and drought.
