Lawn Aeration

Before moving to Denver, I didn't know what lawn aeration was. Your team showed up on schedule and work their magic on my yard. I want the same crew to return next year!

-- Antonio Hayes. in Denver CO

Lawn Aeration

A great aeration service, and It was a lot less than I paid last year. The crew was friendly and even removed the lawn thatch that built up over the winter. It's hard to find a lawn service that's as accomodating.

-- Lydia Miller. in Baton Rouge LA

Lawn Aeration

I have a nice, healthy lawn thanks to the work these guys put in year-round. I wasn't sure they'd be able to aerate because of the heavy, clay soil. But they did a great job and the grass looks a lot better now.

-- Justin Blankenship. in Washington DC


question Why is it important to aerate?

  • Aeration helps to ensure the health of your lawn by reducing soil compaction. Compacted soil prevents air, water, and nutrients from reaching your grass’s roots, causing your grass to undergo stress.
  • What is aeration? Aeration creates holes in the ground to help alleviate compaction and reintroduce air, nutrients, and water movement back into the soil. The result: a healthier, fuller turf.

question How often should I aerate?

  • Aerate your lawn once a year. If your yard has easily compacted soil or thatch buildup, then aerate twice a year.
  • Aeration can be harmful to your lawn if not timed correctly. The best time to aerate is right before your grass’s growth peak. Avoid aerating your lawn during its dormancy. Aerating during the grass’s growth season allows the grass to heal after aeration.
  • For cool-season grasses, the best time for aeration is fall or early spring.
  • For warm-season grasses, aerate in late spring or early summer.

question What's a fair price for aeration?

Expect to pay around $90 for aeration services. Costs can start as low as $30 and be as high as $400 or more depending on your lawn’s size.
