Core Aeration is a lawn care practice to help compacted lawns to better absorb water, nutrients, and to allow air to better reach the root system by perforating the soil with small holes/plugs (around 3/4 of an inch wide and 3″ deep). Core aeration produce a denser, greener, more vigorous lawn.
We offer core aeration during the Spring and Fall and is recommended to do it together with overseeding and fertilizer for better results.
Benefits of Core Aeration:
- Loosens compacted soil
- Improves fertilizer and water uptake and use
- Stronger root system
- Improves color and lawn density if combined with overseeding and fertilizer
- Faster thatch breakdown
- Improves heat and drought stress tolerance
Core aeration is recommended once a year,or 2 times per year for lawns with high foot traffic.
