While regular mowing and maintenance are important to preserving your lawn's appearance and health, more advanced techniques are often required to help it achieve optimal growth. Through our core aeration services, we perforate your lawn with holes to help it better distribute nutrients, water, and sunlight. 

Here at Grow Pros Lawn Care, LLC, we offer expert aeration services to properties in and around South Bend, Elkhart, and Granger, IN. 

What is Core Aeration?

Core aeration is the process of creating small holes in your lawn's soil. Our team at Grow Pros Lawn Care, LLC uses a specialized tool called a lawn aerator to complete our core aeration services. This way, we perform core aeration efficiently and without causing unnecessary damage to your lawn. 

How Do Professional Core Aeration Services Benefit My Lawn?

Professional core aeration services benefit your lawn in a couple of significant ways. For one, core aeration reduces soil compaction. Compacted soil prevents your lawn's roots from establishing properly and thriving for the long term. Through core aeration, you will help your lawn establish deep plant roots and make better use of the nutrients available to it. 

Core aeration also prevents the accumulation of thatch, which is the buildup of decaying plant matter and lawn clippings. When it grows thickly, thatch prevents water and light from accessing your lawn's root zone.  

Thatch is also a breeding ground for diseases and insects, which can further damage your lawn. 

When Is Core Aeration Best Performed?

We perform our core aeration services on lawns with heavily compacted soil. Soil can become compacted for reasons like:

  • Increased traffic from vehicles or small equipment
  • Regular foot traffic from guests or playing children
  • Severe rainfall

By industry standards, core aeration is best performed in the fall. If you are particularly interested in adding life to a bare lawn, seeding services should be performed following core aeration.

For Indiana's cool-season grasses, aeration can also be performed in the spring. However, our lawn restoration experts will create an aeration schedule depending on your lawn's unique needs. 

What Happens After Core Aeration Is Performed?

After we perform our core aeration services, you will notice small core plugs laying on top of your lawn. These plugs do not need to be removed manually from your lawn. They will break apart within a couple of weeks or sooner if you are mowing your lawn regularly.

In the meantime, your lawn will be able to absorb nutrients, air, and water much more easily than it was able to before.
