Lawn Aeration Services in Minnesota
Lawn Aeration, which can also be described as Core Aeration, is one of the most beneficial procedures you can give your lawn.
What is Lawn Aeration?
We perform lawn aeration (sometimes misspelled as “lawn airation”) using a walk-behind machine that punches 1.5l to 2.5-inch holes in your lawn. These holes allow water, oxygen, and nutrients to flow between the soil and the grass’s roots. The aeration process alleviates the compacted soil and gives the grass an opportunity to grow greener and thicker each year. We can perform the lawn aeration process in the spring or fall, and it’s best done after rain when the soil is wet and easy to cut through.
Core Aeration Services and Overseeding
If you are looking for aeration services, we recommend “core” or “plug” aeration where a lawn care professional uses a machine with hollow tins that plugs holes and deposits the first on top of lawns. We might recommend that you overseed your lawn when you aerate, so the openings in the grass give the nutrients and seeds direct contact with the soil. Aeration and overseeding go hand and hand to give your lawn a boost to grow thick green grass each year.
Benefits of Lawn Aeration
- It loosens up the soil and allows water, air, and other nutrients into your grass.
