Lawn Aeration

lawn aerating, soil aeration, aerating grass

If you have a lawn with compacted soil or if it has poor drainage it will accumulate thatch faster than a well drained lawn. Aerating your lawn will help moisture and air penetrate into the compacted lawn. It also helps develop a deeper and healthier root system along with stimulating the microbial activity involved in decomposing the layer of thatch. It is best to aerate using an aerator with tines or spoons that bring cores of soil to the surface. It takes approximately six weeks for grass to fill in the holes that have been created from aerating.

It is best if you can fertilize the lawn about a week before you aerate. The optimal time to aerate your lawn is from late August to early October. Aeration in the spring or summer can also work well especially if you follow up with regular and frequent watering. If you decide to aerate in the spring make sure you mow the lawn at least twice before aerating. If you are not planning on reseeding your lawn you can follow up with applying pre-emergence herbicide after you aerate to help prevent annual weeds from sprouting.

When we aerate we run the aerator over your lawn in two different directions allowing air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. You will then let the cores of soil dry out before you rake them back into your lawn. You also have the option of just letting them sit on your lawn and crumble apart over time. This effect will top dress your lawn with soil containing the desired micro-organisms that work at decomposing thatch.

what our customers say

"Jared's Lawn Care does excellent work! They are always there on-time and on the day they said they would be. They are very polite when I call for any questions and go out of their way to answer and accommodate my lawn care needs. Sometimes even surprised my expectations!! Jared is always polite and has a nice, comfortable way about him and is easy to talk to. But when it came down to business he gets the job done quickly. Cleanliness is 100% and I am always proud of my lawn and excited when I come home from work and it is done. A sigh of relief and I enjoy it. Thanks guys. I love you for making my life so much easier!”
