Aeration is one of the best things you can do for your lawn

It’s a fact.  Aeration is one of the best things you can do for your lawn.  Late summer and/or early fall is the optimum time to do it.

Compacted soil and heavy thatch are the two biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn.  They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone.  Lawns with compacted soil tend not to perform at optimum levels and take longer intervals to recover from adverse weather conditions.  A lawn with excessive thatch is more susceptible to diseases such as Brown Patch and Fusarium Blight.


A&J Landscaping now offers a core aeration program to help.  Aeration is accomplished through the use of a machine equipped with cylinder-like tines designed to penetrate and shatter the soil.  Cores of thatch, soil and grass are actually pulled out of the ground during the process.  The plunging action of the tines opens up the soil, allows grass plants to breathe, permits better utilization of fertilizer, air and water and promotes a deeper, healthier root system.

Other benefits of aeration:

  • Increases air, water and nutrient movement to the root zone
  • Intensifies decomposition of thatch
  • Helps reduce soil compaction
  • Stimulates new growth
  • Improves soil drainage
  • Provides a better environment for over seeding
  • Increases the effectiveness of fertilization and other lawn care products
