Core Aeration - Lawns (especially sodded lawns) should be aerated 1-2 times a year or at least every other year to establish the root system and break down thatch. This will improve air exchange between soil and atmosphere, enhance water intake, improve fertilizer use, make turfgrass more resistant to fungus and disease, stimulate turfgrass rooting, enhance heat and drought resistance, and speed up thatch breakdown.
If nothing else is done to you yard this year, aeration is one of the most beneficial things for your lawn's health. We usually suggest fall core aeration every year.
Thatch Build Up?   Why Core Aerate?
Although a thin layer of thatch is beneficial, it should not exceed 1/2 inch. Excess thatch blocks out air, light and water from reaching the root zones. This problem is typical of sodded lawns and helps cause fungus.
Core aeration usually reduces thatch accumulation to healthy levels.
In most homes, the natural soil has been seriously disturbed by the building process. Fertile topsoil may have been removed or buried during excavation of the basement or footings, leaving subsoil that is more compact, higher in clay content and less desirable for healthy lawn growth. These lawns need aeration to improve the depth and extent of turfgrass rooting and improve fertilizer and water use. Intensely used lawns are exposed to stress from traffic injury. Walking, playing, and mowing are forms of traffic that comact soil particles and reduce large air spaces where roots are ready to grow.


To get a beautiful garden, you must till the soil. Aeration is how you till your lawn. Many people don't think they need aeration until they see their lawn is looking thin, or having other problems. A consistent, year-after-year aeration will make the difference in keeping a lawn beautiful.
