Core Aeration

  What are the Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn?

The biggest benefit to aerating your lawn is allow sufficient oxygen to reach the grass roots. Heavy soil compaction severely reduces the pore space around grass roots which limits the amount of oxygen in that region. Roots require oxygen to grow and absorb water and nutrients. Core aeration benefits lawns by:

  • Increasing the activity of soil microorganisms that decompose thatch
  • Enhancing water infiltration from rainfall and irrigation
  • Improving root growth
  • Increasing water, oxygen and nutrient movement in the root zone
  • Helping to prevent run off of fertilizers and pesticides

Your lawn must have adequate moisture content in order for aeration to be effective, so we may ask you to water in advance of aerating if seasonal conditions make it necessary.
