Core Aeration

Core Aeration is one of the best things that we do as preventative medicine for lawns. Aeration loosens the soil and allows air, water, and nutrients to reach your lawn roots. It is also the best way to help correct the problem of excessive thatch build-up. Additionally, aeration of the lawn improves drainage and the take-up of water by the grass and it encourages deep root growth.

Core Areation Promotes Growth and Reduces Thatch

Aerating is also a great way to reduce thatch. This simple process improves drainage and opens up thatch, allowing water and oxygen to reach down to the roots. In turn, microorganisms thrive and break down the thatch. The holes eventually refill themselves and grow over, but permeability of the soil remains vastly improved. Coring improves root growth and is particularly important on lawns that receive a lot of foot traffic. For lawns that have a high level thatch issue, we also offer a more extensive specialized dethatching service.
