Lawn Aeration Services

Lawn aeration is a process used to improve the health and vitality of a lawn by perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate deep into the root zone of the grass. This process can be done using specialized equipment such as aerators, which come in various forms including spiked aerators or core aerators. Spiked aerators simply poke holes into the soil, while core aerators remove plugs of soil, allowing for better air and water circulation.

Aeration helps to alleviate soil compaction, which occurs over time due to foot traffic, heavy machinery, or even just the natural settling of soil. Compacted soil restricts the movement of air, water, and nutrients, which can lead to poor lawn health, reduced root growth, and increased susceptibility to diseases. By aerating the lawn, you can promote healthier grass growth, improve root development, and enhance the overall appearance of your lawn. It’s typically recommended to aerate lawns once or twice a year, usually in the spring or fall when the grass is actively growing.

Why is Lawn Aeration Beneficial

Lawn aeration is usually performed in spring and fall. The build-up of lawn thatch makes it difficult for your lawn to breathe. Lawn aeration is the process of puncturing the soil with small holes. This aids in providing vital elements such as nutrients, oxygen, air and water to enter the grassroots and make your lawn healthy.
