Why Should You Aerate Your Lawn?

Aeration is easy to overlook after hearing about so many different lawn care services. However, it plays a significant role in allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to penetrate into the root system of your grass, spurring a stronger, more vigorous lawn.  This service is typically done in the Fall but may also be performed in the Spring.

Aeration accelerates the growth and appeal of your lawn while strengthening it to remain healthy through the months ahead

The following benefits of aeration are what help your lawn thrive:


  • Enhances water uptake by soil
  • Reduces water runoff
  • Improves fertilizer uptake
  • Promotes stronger roots
  • Reduces soil compaction
  • Encourages greater heat and stress tolerance
  • Promotes thatch breakdown
  • Allows for better air exchange between soil and the atmosphere

Another tremendous benefit of aeration is that it allows fertilizers and growth stimulants to be absorbed more effectively by your lawn. A fertilization program does little good if nutrients aren’t being fully utilized by the grass.  Aeration offers a stable base to build on.
