Lawn Aeration

Improves lawn density and promotes deeper root growth

Aeration increases the penetration of air, water and nutrients into the root zone area stimulating new root development and encouraging thicker turf growth. Your lawn will be healthier and greener throughout the growing season.

More beneficial than “de-thatching”

Soil aeration promotes the decomposition of thatch while also improving the soil structure. Aeration also does not leave the lawn in the stressed and unsightly condition that de-thatching often does.Aeration increases the penetration of air, water and nutrients into the root zone area stimulating new root development and encouraging thicker turf growth.

Recommended for overseeding

For existing lawn renovation or overseeding, aeration is ideal for creating lodging places for the seed to germinate.

Reduces the possibility of disease and insect infestation

Lawn aeration relieves the disease-creating effects of soil compaction and increases the decomposition of thatch to reduce this insect and disease-breeding habitat. Aeration is much safer and less costly than corrective chemical treatments.

Promotes the decomposition of thatch

Removing cores of soil and thatch increases the infiltration of air and water into the thatch layer. This will encourage condition favoring micro-organism activity that breaks down accumulated thatch.
