Core aeration service in lawns is an excellent tool in the lawn rejuvenation process. Over time, your lawn builds up a layer of grass clippings called thatch and the soil becomes compacted from repeated lawn mowings. When thatch and compaction build up over time, the grass struggles with thin and shallow root systems which can cause the lawn to become thin. Thatch layers also prevent grass from spreading because stolons cannot attach to the soil properly. When an aeration service is performed, our crew brings a commercial grade hydraulic aerator that will puncture the soil and pull out cores from the ground. Typically, aeration should be done in the Spring or Fall and is recommended once per year. Lawns is highly compacted soil and thatch build up should have aeration service twice a year for the first two seasons to loosen the soil and get the thatch layers under control.
