Core Aerating

Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn.
Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new
roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn.

Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns on heavy clay soils,
those with a moderate thatch build-up, and any lawn that needs to be "thickened up".


What is lawn aeration?

What is it….
Aeration is the removal of small cores of soil to allow air, moisture, and fertilizer down to the root zone. A core aerator will pull one to three inch plugs of soil from the ground. These plugs are deposited on the soil's surface where they will break down. Soil surrounding the plugged holes and the soil deposited on top will collapse and fill in. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn.

How it works….
The controlled removal of the small soil cores has many benefits. It allows fertilizer, water and air to quickly reach the root zone of your grass. Both drought and heavy rain stress your grass. During drought conditions, aeration helps water reach thirsty roots. When rain is heavy, it allows air to penetrate and help dry up excess moisture. Aeration holes also relieve pressure from compacted soils, letting oxygen and water move more freely into the root zone.
