And it’s time to schedule aeration and over seeding.

Core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Our aeration equipment removes thousands of small cores of soil from your lawn that are 2 inches deep and 4-5 inches apart. These cores will gradually dissolve back into the thatch, while leaving small holes for turf roots to grow back into.

Benefits of Aeration:

Loosens Compacted Soil

Annual or semiannual aeration is recommended on lawns with heavy clay soils. Aeration will help loosen up compacted or clay soils so that air, water, and nutrients can penetrate into the root zone of the soil better.

Controls Thatch

Thatch is a layer of under-composed stems, roots, and other plant parts on the top of the soil, which inhibits water, air, and fertilizer from moving into the root zone. Thatch is usually found on older lawns, with a low soil pH, and in situations where excessive clippings have consistently been left on the lawn. Regular aeration helps thatch break down naturally by mixing the soil cores into the thatch and speeding up decomposition.
