What is Core Aeration?

What is Core Aeration?

Cores of soil (approximately 5/8 inch in diameter and 1-3 inches long) are removed with an aeration machine. Te displaced soil disintegrates, topdressing your lawn.

What Core Aeration Will do:
  • Increase penetration of vital water, air and nutrients
  • Loosen the soil to encourage deeper, broader root growth
  • Encourage soil fungi and bacteria to help degrade thatch
What Core Aeration will not do:

  • Solve extreme thatch problems (in these cases, Dethatching may be needed.)
  • Promote new growth in severely thin areas (in these cases, Overseeding or Spot Seeding may be needed.)
