The purpose of aerating is to remove "cores" of soil which leaves small holes in the ground.
Removing these cores reduces compaction, which is the leading cause of thatch. Thatch in the
turf will greatly reduce the oxygen and nutrient uptake in your turf causing poor rooting,
growth, and drought tolerance. The optimal time to aerate your warm season grasses, such as
Bermuda is from April thru June. Whereas the best time for cool season grass, like Fescue is
in September or October. Some of the many benefits of core aeration are:
The overall benefit of core aeration is to stimulate new growth of grass by reducing compaction
and increasing the health of the turf. Call us today for your free lawn analysis and aeration
