Lawn Aerating

Give your Lawn a Breather!


The Process:

SOIL COMPACTION - Turfgrass in compacted soil (left) grows slowly, lacks vigor and becomes thin or does not grow at all. Core aeration (center) removes small cores of soil, depositing them on the surface of the turf. This improves the depth and extent of turfgrass rooting (right), and it can help save money on your water bill. (Coutesy of Textron turf care products)

Lawn aeration is the process of mechanically removing soil plugs and small portions of thatch from the lawn. Lawn aeration relieves soil compaction and improves the ability of roots to grow deeper into the soil and expand. The mechanical removal of soil plugs is generally recognized as the best way to improve air and gas exchange, along with water and fertilizer intake.

ROOT GROWTH - Core aeration allows air, water and fertilizer to better reach the root zone. This stimulates root growth to create healthier, stronger turf grass plants. (Courtesy of Textron turf care products)

In San Diego County we have hard adobe clay type soils, decomposed granite and other poor soil conditions which rarely allow our lawns to thrive unless we apply some form of mechanical aeration.

Aeration has both long and short term benefits:

  • promotes air exchange between the soil and atmosphere
  • reduces soil compaction
  • deeper, healthier root growth
  • Improves nutrient uptake and use
  • decreases water run off and puddling
  • conserves water by improving soil water uptake
  • penetrates heavy thatch, enhancing thatch break down
  • makes the turf more heat and drought tolerant
  • enriches surface soil improving resiliency and cushioning
  • You get a greener healthier lawn!

Mechanical aeration is one of the most preventative maintenance services you can do to insure a healthy green lawn. It's like changing the oil in your car.

Severe soil compaction calls for on going aeration. Soil compaction is not going to be solved with one service. Seriously compacted lawns may need to be aerated two or three times a year, both as a preventative and curative measure. No one can estimate how long the benefits of aeration will last, but the experts agree benefits increase with each service.
