If your lawn is looking a little listless, worn, or you notice it gets waterlogged after heavy rain, then you should definitely consider an aeration service. Even if your grass looks okay on the surface, aeration will still help to significantly boost the health of your lawn.

With ongoing lawn care, our experts will be able to assess each visit if aeration is needed, and apply the service annually to keep your grass in tip-top condition.

Aeration should be done annually, and the service can be carried out all year round depending on the right ground conditions. With our lawn care packages, we will take care of aerating your lawn at the most suitable time of the year, so you don’t have to worry about the technicalities.

Aeration will improve the overall health of your lawn, helping to keep it thick, green, and looking beautiful. It does this by improving the drainage of your lawn, removing debris such as moss and thatch, and allowing more oxygen, water, and nutrients to get to the grass roots.

If you want your lawn to be strong, luscious, and green, then aeration service is a must-have.

During the aeration service, our experts will create tiny holes across your lawn. These holes will be unnoticeable when looking at or using your lawn, but they essentially give your grass more space to breathe and flourish.

Any soil and debris that our team removes will be swept away and taken care of, so your lawn will be ready for you to begin using again as soon as the service is finished.
