Core Aeration

Core aeration is a process where a machine called a lawn aerator utilizes small, hollow appendages to remove plugs (cores) of soil and thatch from the lawn. The resulting small holes allow oxygen, hydration, and nutrients to seep deeper into the soil and root system.

Aerating your lawn grows a thicker lawn that promotes healthy roots and deters weeds, lawn diseases, and pests.

Neglecting to have your turf aerated can cause dead grass and debris to form a layer of thatch that hinders moisture and oxygen from reaching the roots. Thatch can be a promoter of disease and pests for your lawn. Aerating your lawn annually will avoid thatch buildup and keep your lawn thriving!

For the best results, we perform aeration during damp conditions.


In conjunction with aeration services, we offer overseeding. Overseeding brings new grass growth to your turf. We use premium blends of seed that is devoid of weeds and has a high germination rate.

Overseeding helps:

  • Repair lawns damaged by heat, sun, and drought.
  • Keep weeds from creeping into your lawn by crowding them out.
  • Add new grass to your lawn, which helps it grow thicker in the following year.

It is best to do overseeding after aerating your lawn in the fall, which is the reason why we offer these services together.
