Spring Core Aeration

Grass roots must have air (oxygen) to be healthy. When soils become compacted there is little room for air or water to be present. Under ideal conditions the soil should be composed of 50% solids, 25% air and 25% water. Core aeration removes several plugs per foot to allow air and water to enter the soil, resulting in a compaction-reducing swelling of the soil.
Aeration can benefit every lawn, but your lawn’s health will benefit most if any of the following conditions are present: heavy clay soils, weeds, excessive runoff and puddling, sparse thin lawns. Newly sodded lawns, especially peat sods can be aerated as soon as they are well rooted: (8-10 weeks). Lawns can be aerated anytime there is adequate moisture, but the best times to aerate are in the late spring and early fall.
