What is Lawn Aeration?

If you’ve ever seen a lawn covered with little cylindrical plugs of dirt, that lawn had just been aerated. This process involves the use of a special lawn aeration tool that is covered with spikes. As the tool is pushed forward, the spikes penetrate into the soil and leave behind small holes into which water and nutrients can pass. This can help your grass’s roots grow more deeply, making your lawn stronger, fuller, and healthier.

Why is Lawn Aeration Important?

Lawn aeration is an essential lawn maintenance process if you want a lush green carpet of grass. First and foremost, aerating the lawn makes it easier for your grass to get what it needs to grow. When the soil becomes too compacted, it can be more difficult for your lawn to absorb minerals, fertilizers, and water. Periodic loosening of compacted soil improves absorption, drainage, and even your lawn’s ability to fight off weeds.

After our experts aerate your lawn, we’ll follow with a fertilizer application to nourish your grass down to its roots. If there are areas of your lawn that appear sparse, this would be the time where we would also reseed.

When is the Best Time to Aerate Your Lawn?

Lawn aeration frequency depends on the type of grass you have, your location, and the type of soil you have. A general rule of thumb, though, it to make sure you aerate once per year in the late summer or early fall. Late August through early October is the right window to call for service. If your lawn is growing well or you’re in an area with sandy soil (as opposed to heavy clay soil), you may be able to get away with aerating every other year.
