If you want a healthy, lush lawn, it sometimes isn’t enough to simply mow, water and fertilize your lawn. If you have compact soil – and most of us do – your efforts may be going to waste due to lack of proper absorption.

Frequently Asked Questions
Thatch is the layer immediately below the green of your grass made up of the roots, stems and other organic matter. It can get too thick for number of reasons including poor aeration, too much water and too much nitrogen.
Too much thatch will act like a barrier between your grass and the soil blocking it from absorbing nutrients, oxygen, water and sunlight.
It could be clay soil if:
- it has a grey or red hue instead of dark brown
- water doesn’t absorb but instead puddles
- it cracks in dry weather
Try a squeeze test: wet a bit of soil and squeeze it. Does it keep its shape if you poke it? If yes, it’s likely clay soil.
Yes! It is safe for pets and family immediately after service.
*Do not remove the cores from your lawn as they play an essential role in the aeration process*
You’ll need to water your lawn for 20 minutes per area, 3x per week.
The best time to aerate is in the fall. Soggy spring conditions risk damaging your lawn or even compacting your soil. We recommend fall aeration to help prepare your lawn to survive the harsh winter weather. Deep penetration of oxygen and nutrients will promote a healthy root system which allows your grass to withstand stressful conditions.
