Aeration is an annual service in which small plugs of soil/grass are pulled from your yard to prevent soil compaction. This process allows more nutrients to be absorbed at the roots. Lawn aeration keeps your lawn healthy and looking lush, when completed every year. A hidden benefit of lawn aeration is that aerated yards are typically easier to care for, as they do not suffer from issues such as poor water drainage, excessive thatch accumulation, and root degradation.
We typically aerate the following grasses:
1 | Fescue
2 | Zoysia
3 | Bermuda
Each grass has its own needs and seasonal requirements. For example, Fescue is typically aerated and seeded in the fall while Bermuda is serviced in the spring.
