Core Aeration


What is Core Aeration?

 
Why do I need it?

Core aeration is the removal of small cores of soil and thatch from your lawn.

Aeration is beneficial for your lawn in a number of ways. Aeration will overcome compacted soil. Compacted soils make it difficult for roots to grow, limiting the movement of air, moisture and fertilizer through the soil.

Aeration will reduce your water requirements. By relieving soil compaction, water penetration is increased and water run-off is reduced.

How's it done?


Give us a call, we'll do the rest.

Specifically designed aeration equipment consists of a series of hollow coring tines. When these tines are rolled over the lawn, they puncture the soil, systematically removing small soil plugs.

The cores of soil and thatch are pulled up by the machine and left on the lawn, as they contain beneficial microorganisms that will help to break down the remaining thatch.

They will disappear back into the lawn in about seven to ten days or with the first mowing.

After the aeration is completed your lawn will be overseeded with premium grass seed. Problem areas will be hand raked and seeded.
