Aeration Services for Bloomington, IN

Does your lawn look tired and patchy?

Over time, lawns can become compacted due to foot traffic, heavy equipment, or even general wear and tear. This compaction squeezes the air and water out of the soil, hindering the ability of grassroots to breathe and absorb vital nutrients. The result? Thin, patchy areas, increased susceptibility to drought and disease, and an overall unhealthy lawn.

Aeration is the answer!

Aeration is the process of creating small holes, typically 2-3 inches deep, throughout your lawn’s soil. We use core aerators, which remove small plugs of soil as they create these holes. These plugs, sometimes called “cores,” break down over time and contribute valuable organic matter back to the soil.

Aeration Benefits

Aeration is a crucial step in achieving a healthy and vibrant lawn. This process involves perforating the soil, which creates small holes that allow essential nutrients, water, and air to reach the grassroots more effectively.

Signs Your Lawn Needs Aeration Services:

There are several telltale signs that your lawn could benefit from aeration.

Here are a few to watch for:

Thatch Buildup:

If you can easily peel back a layer of dead grass material exceeding ½ inch thick, thatch buildup is likely an issue.

Water Runoff:

Does water pool on your lawn after watering or rainfall instead of soaking in? This indicates compacted soil that aeration can help alleviate.

Spongy Feeling:

Walking on your lawn and feeling a spongy sensation can be a sign of compacted soil.

Thin or Patchy Areas:

Areas with sparse or patchy grass growth could be due to compacted soil hindering healthy root development.

Increased Susceptibility to Disease:

Compacted soil can create an environment favorable for certain lawn diseases. Aeration can help improve overall lawn health and disease resistance.
