One of the most common questions from home and business owners is how to determine if they should be aerating their lawn. Your lawn is probably a good candidate for aeration if it:

  • Does you lawn get heavy use? Children and pets running around on your lawn can contribute to soil compaction.
  • Newly instructed homes are often candidates because the topsoil is usually stripped or buried, and the grass that has established on the topsoil has been compacted by construction traffic.
  • Does your lawn dry our easily and/or have a spongy feel? This could mean that your lawn has an excessive thatch problem. Test it out by taking a shovel and digging up a small piece of your lawn about four inches deep. If the thatch layer is more than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
  • Was your lawn established by sod? Sod creates soil layering which mean the soil from the sod has a finer texture which is layered over coarser soil. This layering prevents water from draining and is held in the finer, sod soil. This causes soil compaction and poor root development. By aerating your lawn it breaks up all those layers and allows water to flow through the soil more easily and reach the roots.‚Äč

The best time for aeration is during the growing season, when the grass can heal and fill in any open areas after soil plugs are removed. Ideally, aerate the lawn with cool season grass in the early spring or fall and those with warm season grass in the late spring.

Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn.

The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from these essential elements.
