Get in touch with the Turfcor Certified experts in Lawn Aeration and Overseeding today to get started on your path to healthier, greener lawn.
Core aeration loosens the soil, allowing water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots to be absorbed. Grass seeds germinate easily in the aerated holes. Aeration and overseeding paired together has many benefits, from thickening an existing lawn, to introducing increased disease and insect resistant grass varieties, to filling in bare areas where weeds are sure to develop.

Turfcor Certified Lawncare Professionals
One of the most important services for maintaining a healthy, lush lawn is lawn aeration. The soil in your yard gets compacted over time, making it harder for water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. Small “plugs” or tubes of soil are removed during a lawn aeration procedure, leaving open holes behind that allow air, water, and nutrients to access the soil and be picked up by the root system of your turf.
Over-seeding helps to fill in bare spots or increase the overall density of your existing lawn when applied to the entire yard. The best seasons for management are spring or fall because the seed has time to become rooted in the soil and is not stressed by foot traffic, drought or pests. With our lawn aeration services, our fall and spring lawn overseeding services work in tandem. Lawn aeration and overseeding work well together, as the aeration holes provide the seed with a perfect place to germinate and grow.
How Does Lawn Aeration Help Your Lawn?
Aeration helps promote thicker and healthier turf, especially when combined with over-seeding. Grass will begin to thin over time without aeration. These thin spots offer an opportunity for weeds and lawn diseases to move in. Lawn aeration services facilitate the movement of air, water, and nutrients in the soil, enhancing the microbial activity that helps break down thatch. It also relieves hard-packed soils, especially in high-traffic areas.
Thick, healthy turf not only looks amazing, it also naturally helps crowd out weeds. Regardless of your ongoing maintenance plan, aeration is beneficial for the health of all lawns, but it is particularly essential for maintaining an organic, herbicide-free lawn. Other treatments may also be made more efficient by Lawn aeration and can minimize the amount of weed control product required.
What are the Benefits of Lawn Aeration?
- Reduced soil compaction.
- Soil is able to retain more water and it can be soaked up more readily by the grass roots.
- More efficient watering and irrigation; less pooling and runoff.
- Grass roots can be more effective at bringing in and using fertilizer.
- The root system grows stronger and can function better.
- Thatch has a better breakdown.
- The lawn can better tolerate stress from heat and drought.
