Aeration is a great way to combat soil compaction and allow nutrients to seep down deep into the soil where the roots of your grass can use them. We offer our aeration service in the spring and the fall and we recommend aerating lawns in Iowa at least once a year. We mechanically aerate lawns using a core aeration machine that pokes small holes into the soil and removes small cores from each hole. We can also combine overseeding with our core aeration process to give the new seeds excellent soil to seed contact.
We have been offering our aeration service to residential and commercial property owners in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, IA and throughout the surrounding areas since 1988. Give us a call today at (515) 289-2020 to schedule our aeration service to give your lawn access to the nutrients that it needs to thrive!
We offer our aeration service in both the spring and fall seasons. Several considerations may dictate which time of year might be best to schedule our aeration service for your lawn, such as the condition of your lawn and the type of grass you have in your lawn. We recommend aerating your lawn at least once a year, whether in the spring or fall, to ensure your grass has access to the nutrients that it needs to flourish. We avoid aerating lawns in the summer so they do not have to deal with the additional stress through those hot summer months.
We aerate lawns using core aeration. As our aeration machine runs over your lawn, it pokes small holes into the soil. These holes alleviate soil compaction and allow nutrients, air, moisture, and light to reach further down into the soil of your lawn. This gives the roots of your grass better access to these vital nutrients so your lawn can grow nice and strong.
The cores from our core aeration process remain on the surface of the lawn when we are finished. They will return nutrients back into the soil as they decompose.
If your lawn has any bare or patchy areas in it, it could benefit from our overseeding service. This service involves spreading grass seeds across your lawn, which will then grow and fill in these spots. We suggest pairing our overseeding service with our aeration service as this will allow for maximum seed to soil contact. This will provide the best chance for the new seeds to successfully germinate and turn into new and healthy grass.
Soil compaction stifles root growth and can ultimately kill grass in heavily-compacted areas. Core aeration helps break up the compacted soil so roots can grow healthy again and nutrients like moisture, air, and sunlight can reach down further into the soil. We offer our core aeration service in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Ankeny, and throughout the surrounding areas of Iowa. We have been serving residential and commercial properties for 35 years. Give us a call today at (515) 289-2020 to schedule our core aeration service. We look forward to working with you to help you get the beautiful and healthy lawn that you have always wanted!
