Lawn Aeration

Did you know that lawn aeration will thicken your lawn and maximizes lawn treatments, fertilizers, and rainfall/irrigation?


So what is lawn aeration? It is the process of removing 2 1/2 - 3 inch plugs of turf, thatch, and soil. This allows oxygen and nutrients to feed back into the root system and creates a healthier, thicker, fuller lawn.


Why is aeration important? Lawn aeration  helps to bring nutrients and oxygen to the roots that would otherwise be lacking. Thatch that is greater than 1/2 inch increase the amount of lawn insects and diseases. The process of aeration helps to break up soil compaction and built up thatch to create a healthier lawn.


  • Improved air exchange between soil and atmosphere
  • Stronger turf grass roots
  • Reduced soil compaction
  • Improved fertilizer uptake and use
  • Reduced water runoff
  • Enhanced thatch breakdown


We recommend aerating your lawn once a year. The optimal time to have this procedure done is in the fall season.
