Improve Lawn Health With Aeration

Compacted soil is one of the biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. It tends to suffocate grass plants and prevents air, water, and nutrients from reaching the root system. Lawn aeration is a great solution to overcome this problem because it allows your lawn to absorb essential nutrients and moisture and grow deeper roots.

What Is Granular Aeration?

Granular aeration* replenishes carbon in your soil in an environmentally friendly manner without disturbing the surface of your lawn. This process reduces soil compaction, which allows the soil to absorb water and nutrients more efficiently.

Aeration also promotes improved root system development and healthier soil — all of this with NO messy plugs!

*Can be done in conjunction with overseeding.

What Are the Benefits of Granular Aeration?

Core aeration done with a lawn aerator machine manually pulls plugs or “cores” of soil to allow water and nutrients to penetrate deeper into the lawn. The problem is that this process leaves messy dirt plugs everywhere and can damage underground irrigation systems or dog fences, if not marked properly.

With granular aeration, these issues are of no concern to you. You won’t have to mark anything off either, which will save you time!

After granular lawn aeration, you can expect the following:

  • No messy dirt plugs as with core aeration
  • A lawn with fewer bare/less filled-in areas
  • Healthier, more balanced soil composition
  • Improved root system that’s better equipped to resist weeds

When Should You Aerate Your Lawn?

We recommend that you aerate your lawn two times per year. Spring and fall aerations both yield great results. Spring aerations are provided until the weather becomes too hot. Fall aeration services begin around the third week of August and are completed before the ground freezes.

Is Granular Aeration Safe?

The product we use is non-chemical based and naturally derived from harvested grains. It is environmentally-friendly, non-toxic, and safe for children and pets.

However, we recommend that you stay off your lawn for at least 1 hour after application to allow the aeration solution to absorb properly into the lawn.

Mechanical Aeration & Overseeding

Note: This service is available in limited areas. Please get in touch with us for details. 

In some cases, your lawn would benefit from mechanical aeration, particularly if significant thatch is present.

With mechanical aeration, soil plugs are pulled from the lawn. Opening these holes allows more air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the soil, promoting a deeper, healthier root system.

Our team will then broadcast seed over your lawn, which will enter the holes and introduce new grass growth.
