Aeration is a seasonal service and is usually done during the fall season when temperatures are cooler. Aerating your lawn during the fall will help you take advantage of these conditions and strengthen your lawn for the spring.
We strongly recommend aeration for all lawns once each year. Aeration reduces compaction, which means that the soil is smashed tightly together, making it difficult for water, air, nutrients, and your grass’ roots to get down into the dirt.
Aeration loosens the soil and allows air, water, nutrients, and your grass’ roots to penetrate more easily. Aeration will allow your watering to work better because it will soak into your lawn more easily. (If you notice that water always runs off your lawn when you’re watering, you really need to aerate to save on your water bill!)
