Aeration, the process of removing "plugs" of soil, is probably the single best thing you can do for your lawn. Aeration provides a number of proven benefits. First, it breaks up soil compaction, allowing oxygen and water to get down to the root zone so grass can grow thicker and healthier. Second, it provides good conditions for overseeding, which allows new grass to establish itself and help fill out thin areas. Annual aeration is a great way to maintain a healthy lawn, but it is a bit tricky. The easiest way to aerate is with a machine called a Core Aerator, but leasing and transporting these bulky devices can be a chore. Let the pros at Fertilawn of Kentucky handle this task and put together a complete package to get your lawn on the way to perfection.

How We Perform Aeration

Our personnel at Ferti-Lawn of Kentucky are all trained and certified to perform simple to complex lawn aeration jobs. They follow a tried and tested process that guarantees a healthy lawn that clients are after. Specifically, these are the steps that we follow in aerating residential or commercial lawns:

  • Determine the exact grass species our clients have. Knowing whether our clients’ lawns have cool-season or warm-season turf species is the first thing we do. This is because specific grass varieties have peculiar growth patterns, and aerating them at the wrong time will render the process useless. For cool-season grasses (ryegrass, creeping bentgrass, rough bluegrass, fescue, and the like), we aerate lawns either at the onset of fall or towards summer’s end. Meanwhile, we usually perform the process early summer and towards the end of spring, when we’re handling warm-season turf species, like St. Augustine, bahia, zoysia, buffalo, and Bermuda grass.

  • Know the specific type of soil. For clay soil, we generally recommend aerating the lawn at least once a year; for sandy soil, it’s at least once every two years.

  • Determine how the lawn is used. We also check how the lawns are used by our clients as our final consideration. We typically aerate lawns once every year if they are used as parking areas or if they are frequently driven over.

When taken together, these factors help us perform aeration jobs that are guaranteed to produce positive results in the form of lush, healthy lawns.
