Aerating your lawn may not seem like a priority in a landscaping project, but it is a simple procedure that can considerably increase the health and beauty of your landscape. Allow %COMPANY%’s professional core aerators to serve all your aerating needs.
Lawn aeration can improve air and water circulation to your grass’s root system, improving the overall health of your lawn. Most lawns will need this done at least once, but ideally every year or so. Extra thick lawns, especially those started from sod rather than seed, may need to be aerated more than once. Whatever your needs, our lawn experts have you covered for commercial and residential green spaces. Call us today to discuss your lawn care needs.
Lawn Core Aerator and the Benefits of Aeration
During aeration, a machine called a core aerator is used to remove plugs of thatch, dirt, and even some roots from your existing lawn. Allowing these to disintegrate into the lawn is recommended, since they provide much-needed nutrients to your space’s soil.
The benefits of this process leave small holes throughout the surface of your lawn, allowing it to receive the air, water, fertilizer, and herbicides it needs and distributes them throughout the root system. Core aeration is also a great way to reduce thatch buildup and help reduce soil compaction which can make it difficult for your roots to grow.
Soil Aeration to Reduce Thatching
Thatch is the portion of grass between the roots and the green tops. It is made up of dead grass, leaves and other small particles that provide nutrients as it decomposes and can protect against extreme temperatures. It also can help decrease compact spots and increase water intake. While some thatch is important and helpful in a healthy lawn, lots of thatch buildup can be detrimental by blocking air and water intake.
Insects and diseases can spread in this area and it can even choke out healthy grass over time. Thatch growth is increased by overwatering, planting lawns in heavy clay soils, over-fertilizing and mowing grass. To increase the benefits of your soil for your lawn, consider our dethatching services. We will reduce thatch buildup and revitalize the health and look of your lawn.

Professional Aeration Services for Dethatching
In order to restore health to a heavily thatched lawn, dethatching is necessary. It involves raking and removing some of this buildup. Our lawn aerators recommend dethatching during spring or fall, either a after rainfall or a watering.
We mow grass shorter than normal and remove clippings. We then run a power rake over the area and remove the debris that results from mowing. If your lawn contains severe thatch buildup, we allow the lawn to recover after dethatching and then repeat again in a few weeks so as not to harm the lawn more than help it. We guarantee a proper maintenance and care of your lawn. Call today for more details.
