Core Aeration
Hi Friends!

I'm Mike Augeri , president of Lawn King LLC, and I'm here to tell you it's time to give your lawn a breather…literally! Your lawn needs a breath of fresh air.

Are you tired of spending time and money on your lawn with no results? You've done the basics of watering, mowing, fertilizing and still it's not enough! For a greener, thicker, healthier lawn you need to do what the Pros do! You need to aerate!

Insects, diseases, improper watering and lack of fertilizer are often blamed for a lawn's decline when the real culprit is soil compaction. Lawn aeration is the only method to alleviate soil compaction, thus giving root systems the adequate amount of air, water, and fertilizer to create a healthy green lawn.


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. (Courtesy 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 turfgrass plants. (Courtesy of Textron turf care products)

 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.

Lawn King, LLC provides this service for as low as $75.00 for most front lawns and only $125.00 for both front and back lawns of average size. Front lawns larger than 5,000 sq. ft. and front and back lawns larger than 8000 sq. ft. are given a special discounted price of $12.00 for each additional 1,000 sq. ft.
