The Benefits of Soil Aeration

Soil aeration offers a number of benefits to help a healthy lawn grow, making proper aeration just as important for your lawn as fertilizer. When aerating soil, the goal is to allow more space for the grass to grow as well as help more oxygen to reach the roots of the lawn. A healthy lawn should have about 25% oxygen content in the soil, along with 25% water, 45% minerals, and 5% organic matter. While it is tempting to work with a lawn repair company that claims they can aerate your lawn cheaply and quickly, it is important to know where these services fall short.

With fewer holes per square foot and more risk of compacting soil with every pass, the big, heavy soil aeration machines many companies use leave a lot to be desired. That is why Greener Lawns uses a unique and more effective method instead. Our approach to soil aeration produces more holes and ensures that the soil is getting plenty of oxygen, along with important nutrients for soil health and lawn growth.

Soil Aeration: Just One Part of Our Lawn Repair System

Soil aeration is just one part of our comprehensive lawn repair service. With the Greener Lawns repair system, we can have your lawn looking greener and healthier for years to come by incorporating services such as aeration, topsoil work, seeding, and the application of organic fertilizer as needed.

When it comes to soil aeration, the simple difference is that we do it better. Where other lawn companies see soil aeration simply as a money generator that they want to complete as quickly as possible, we aim to provide the most benefit to our client. They often use aeration machines that can travel as fast as 7.5 miles per hour and boost the ability to aerate up to a quarter acre in 10 minutes. Yet the big ride on machine aerators that many other lawn care companies use can only make 4.6 holes per square foot on average. Additionally, the machines are so big and heavy, they actually just compact the soil more with every pass they make.

Studies have shown that for soil aeration to be beneficial there must be a minimum of 12 holes per square foot. Our soil aerators can give you anywhere from 8.5 to as many as 45 holes per square foot. With 45 holes per square foot, we can prep completely dead areas for seeding, ensuring better growth.


With our lawn aeration services, we do it better and we get results:

  • Our approach gives you more holes per sq. ft.
  • We also do patch repairs to prepare for seeding
  • You can expect 8 to 48 holes per sq. ft.

Will you be our next satisfied customer? While it is easy to overlook the finer details of something as seemingly simple as soil aeration, getting high quality service on your lawn can have a lot of benefits. Not only will your lawn look great for years to come, there is savings in it for you too.

Testimonials

Greener Lawns Did Exactly That!

Got some help over the summer to get my lawn back to where it should have been ages ago. I requested some organic care and aeration and it worked great! Now I have the lush grass I have been looking for and got some really great tips from Joe on how to continue to keep my lawn maintained as he continues to improve our lawn over the next year. :)
