Core Aeration

Core AerationCore aeration helps to control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps to create growth pockets for new roots and opens the way for water, air and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn.

With this service, thousands of small cores of soil 1” to 3” in length are removed from your turf. These cores “melt” back into the lawn after a few rainfalls, mixing with and helping to break down whatever thatch exists on your lawn (more than ½” can be harmful).

The holes created by aeration catch air, fertilizer and water. Turf roots naturally grow toward these growth pockets and thicken in the process. Aeration holes also relieve pressure from compacted soils, letting oxygen and water move more freely into the root zone.

Performed at least once per year, aeration significantly reduces thatch and encourages a stronger, more extensive root system for thicker, healthier turf growth.
