Lawn Aeration

Give your lawn a breath of fresh air

What is lawn aeration?

Lawn aeration removes small cores of soil from your lawn to reduce soil compaction and promote root growth. The result is a healthier lawn.

Lawn aeration, also known as core aeration, soil cultivation, coring, spiking, or slicing, helps the naturally occurring process of air flowing between the soil and its surrounding atmosphere.

What are the benefits of Lawn Aeration

Aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements. Compact soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps water and fertilizer from reaching the grass roots.

Aeration can

  • Improve the air exchange
  • between the soil and atmosphere
  • Increase soil absorption of water and nutrients
  • Improve fertilizer absorption
  • Reduce water runoff and puddles
  • Create stronger grass roots
  • Reduce soil compaction
  • Enhance health and drought stress tolerance
  • Improve lawn resiliency and cushioning
  • Enhance thatch breakdown

Why is lawn aeration needed

The fertile layer of topsoil can be removed or buried during excavation projects. Forcing grass to grow in more compact subsoil and higher clay content, which is less likely to sustain a healthy lawn.

General use and wear and tear, such as walking, playing, and mowing your lawn can gradually compact the soil. Rain and irrigation can also compact the soil, which reduces large spaces where roots can comfortably grow.
