Core Aeration: Improve soil health and nutrient absorption with our core aeration services.

Core Aeration

Aeration is the naturally occurring process of air exchange between the soil and its surrounding atmosphere. Aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.

The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a particular space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from these essential elements.

The Benefits of Aerating your Lawn

If your lawn has thin grass, high levels of thatch, high traffic or poor soil, core aeration can apply numerous amounts of benefits to your lawn. These benefits are:
  • Improve air exchange
  • Enhance soil water uptake
  • Improve fertilizer uptake
  • Reduce water run-off
  • Reduce soil compaction
  • Enhance heat tolerance
  • Enhance thatch breakdown
  • Promote root growth

Turf Aeration with Compost Top Dressing

Combining aeration and top dressing gives dramatic results. Aeration removes plugs from soil, exposing roots and reducing compaction. Top dressing the aerated turf fills those aeration holes with nutrient-rich compost that naturally feeds the roots while retaining water for the thirsty plants.
