Lawn Core Aeration
A lawn core aeration is the process of removing small plugs of grass and soil from the ground with a specialized machine.
These new air spaces in the lawn allow oxygen, fertilizers, and water to penetrate deeper into the root system, making it stronger and more resistant to weeds and diseases.
Aeration also helps cure heavily compacted soil, which prevents circulation of air, water, and nutrients in your soil.

Reduce Lawn Thatch
Lawn aeration also helps to decrease the buildup of thatch in your lawn.
Thatch is made up of a layer of dead roots, rhizomes, and lawn clippings that have not been broken down between the surface of the soil and the layer of grass. If this build up of thatch becomes too thick, it soaks up any moisture like a sponge and does not allow the roots to properly affix themselves into the soil.
The root system is not able to get the necessary nutrients it needs to withstand changes in temperature and long-term good health. In addition, excessive thatch provides a breeding ground for pests like insects and grubs, which will harm the lawn even further.
Combine Aeration with Seeding for Maximum Benefit
Lawn Aeration gives an excellent opportunity for lawn seeding. Following lawn aeration, lawn seeding helps thicken up the turf layer and further reduce weed growth.
