What Is Aeration?

Soil, or core, aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil and thatch from your lawn. Our clay soils here in the Triangle are easily compacted. Most lawns have been compacted by the building process, as well as by mowing, walking, and playing on. Even rainfall and irrigation compacts our clay soils!

What Is Compaction?

Compaction decreases your soils ability to provide nutrients, water, and oxygen to your turf’s roots, and eventually makes it difficult for the roots themselves to grow. Compact soils increase thatch buildup. With less nutrients to feed on and a harder ground to break into, grass roots can’t grow, and the ultimate result is thin, brown turf.

Golf Courses Aerate

Golf Courses aerate several times a year. And they are turf experts. Their livelihood depends on the condition of their turf.

Benefits of Aeration

  • Reduces water runoff and puddling.
  • Improves turf grass rooting.
  • Reduces soil compaction.
  • Enhances heat and drought stress tolerance.
  • Improves resiliency and cushioning.
  • Enhances thatch breakdown
  • Improves Soil Structure
  • Promotes a thicker, healthier, & greener lawn
  • Reduces watering costs
  • Stimulates deep root development
  • Improves air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.
  • Enhances soil water uptake.
  • Improves fertilizer uptake and use.

Properly aerated and conditioned lawns cost less to maintain – they need fewer mowings, less water (in many cases 50% less,) and decrease or eliminate the need for toxic pesticides and herbicides.

Core aeration creates holes in the soil, relieving compaction, enabling your soil to hold more moisture and nutrients, reducing runoff, and giving your turf’s roots the ability to grow strong and deep. It’s that deep root system that gives your lawn the ability to grow thick, resist weeds and pests, and survive heat and drought.

We will be aerating our Warm Season Turf lawns next spring, by appointment only.

This is a special service and not part of our annual program. If you would like to be placed on the schedule, email your address to:, and I will measure your lawn online and email you back a quote.

We would love to have you as one of the few. Thank you!
