Lawn Aeration Service
Homeowners in Texas have different types of turfgrasses.
We see a mix of both warm-season and cool-season lawns in this area. Some homes have both types of grass on the same property. That is why it is important to select a lawn care company that is skilled in aeration for your type of lawn.
We offer core aeration and liquid aeration services to customers throughout North Texas including Plano, Prosper, McKinney, Fairview and Flower Mound.
Lawn aeration is also commonly referred to as core aeration. This is an important service for all lawn varieties (both warm and cool). Aeration is the process of perforating the soil, by removing a core or small plugs of soil and depositing that core on the surface to break down. The aeration process also helps to remove any thatch layer that might exist, although some lawns may still require dethatching.
Warm-season grasses such as Bermuda and Zoysia should be aerated after they have fully returned from dormancy and are in their peak growing season. The timing of this depends on location but in the North Dallas, TX area it typically occurs between late June-August. Warm-season turf does not require overseeding.
Cool-season grasses should be aerated in the early fall-late fall when you overseed. In Texas, we usually begin this process right after Labor Day.
Liquid lawn aeration offers similar results to core aeration, but instead of removing soil cores, we use a wetting agent that contains humic acid that helps alleviate soil compaction. Similar to a soil conditioner, liquid aeration penetrates deep into the root zone to break up compaction and allow more air and water to reach grass roots.
Liquid is a great alternative to mechanical aeration and we find the benefits can be just as effective. Many homeowners do not want to take the time to mark their sprinkler systems or be concerned with soil cores on their lawn following a core aeration. Liquid aeration can also be more cost-effective.
Our skilled team applies the liquid aeration product using a hose-end sprayer similar to what we use for your lawn fertilization treatments and you are left with a newly aerated lawn in no time at all!
Benefits of Aeration for Your Lawn
Aerating your lawn allows water, air, and fertilizer to penetrate all the way down to the root zone. This in turn supports root growth, by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating a more healthy and thicker lawn.
Lawn aeration reduces the chances of having thatch buildup. Thatch makes it harder for your lawn to absorb water and nutrients. It also makes it more susceptible to disease.
Reduces soil compaction, creating more channels for water, air, and nutrients to travel through. Just like humans, your grass needs water, oxygen, and food to thrive.
Helps your lawn thrive through our hot Texas summers and throughout the year. Healthier lawns recover from drought stress better.
