Reasons to Aerating Your Lawn?

Your lawn is probably a good candidate for aeration if it:

  • Gets heavy use from children and pets running around the yard contribute to soil compaction.
  • Was established as part of a newly constructed home. Often, the topsoil of newly constructed lawns is stripped or buried, and the grass established on subsoil has been compacted by construction traffic.
  • Dries out easily and has a spongy feel due to excessive thatch.  If the thatch layer is greater than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
  • Was established by sod, and soil layering exists. New sod could have a more dense soil and the current do not mix or settle correctly.
