Lawn Aeration Treatment

Tractor in Field

If your yard is looking a little "meh", we provide lawn aeration as well! It's a process that pokes holes into your lawn providing oxygen, water, and nutrients into your soil!

Benefits of Lawn Aeration
Improve Soil Health

Soil compaction and thatch are common issues that affect turf grass health and growth. If left unchecked they prevent nutrients, water, and air from reaching the soil and turf grass roots. This can lead to areas of dead grass, poor drainage, fungal growth, and affect soil microbial health. Lawn core aeration treatment removes 1/2" to 3/4" inch plugs of soil from your lawn which allows water, air, microbes, and nutrients to enter the soil. Core aeration combined with topdressing treatment will allow the composted soil to fill the plug holes that were created in the soil and help reverse compaction and thatch.

Amending Compacted Soils 

Lawn soils in the San Antonio and Hill Country areas usually contain large amounts of heavy clay and caliche that will compact over time with lawn traffic and natural processes. Compacted soils alter the soil composition, inhibiting water infiltration, drainage, and nutrient transport to the grassroots. This disruption leads to turf stress, diseases, poor root development, and the growth of weeds that outcompete turf grasses. Creating core aeration holes in the soil and then adding compost topdressing allows microbes to decompose organic matter allowing the transport of nutrients deeper into the soil. This core creation treatment will amend soil compaction and may need to be done a few times depending on the soil conditions of the yard.

Improve Soil Structure and Drainage

Turf grass over time will produce thatch, a layer of organic dead matter (grass clippings, leaves, dead roots, etc) above the top layer of soil. This natural process is good for grass and soil conditions if the thatch layer does not exceed a thickness of over a 1/2 inch. Thatch layers that become thicker than a half inch will create conditions that prevent water, air, and nutrients from infiltrating down to the soil. This will lead to dead grass patches, poor drainage, poor grass root development, and degraded microbial soil health. With the application of lawn core creation combined with composted soil lawn dressing, thatch issues can be reversed by allowing air, water, nutrients, and decomposing microbes to work on breaking down thick thatch. Over time thick thatch can be reduced allowing the soil and roots of the grass access to beneficial nutrients, water, air, and beneficial microbes that support a healthy lawn.
