We offer core aeration services to properties in Alton, Godfrey, Edwardsville, IL and nearby areas.
Our pros can aerate your cool-season grass in the spring and fall to help it flourish.
The soil beneath your grass can get compacted over time for several reasons, leaving the roots of your grass starving for essential nutrients. At Element Turf & Outdoor Solutions, LLC, our experienced pros can help rejuvenate your weak turf with our core aeration services. Most of our clients prefer scheduling our core aeration service in the fall and then pairing it with our top-notch overseeding service. But, you can also schedule it in the spring to give your turf much-needed strength to rebound from winter and flourish in the summer months. The process of aerating your lawn will create soil plugs that will release nutrients back to the soil.
Our core aeration services are available to properties in Alton, Godfrey, Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, IL and surrounding communities. Our professionals use a high-quality core aerator machine that is regularly cleaned and maintained to ensure it will work outstandingly when we aerate your lawn.
When can we aerate your lawn?
Illinois is home to cool-season grasses. Core aeration is most beneficial when done during the fall, which is why our crew aerates at this time. We recommend scheduling our core aeration services in the fall since your cool-season grass grows most actively at this point. Because aerating your lawn involves poking tiny holes to open up the soil, it's best to perform this service when your turf is at its strongest to handle the process.
However, we can also perform core aeration on your lawn in the spring. While this is not the peak growing point of your cool-season lawn, core aeration in the spring will give it a much-needed boost after the cold winter months. No matter when you choose to aerate your lawn, we highly urge that you schedule our core aeration services annually to ensure your lawn has consistent access to essential resources necessary to thrive.
When you schedule our fall core aeration service, you can upgrade and get our overseeding service as an add-on!
Our Core Aeration Process
At Element Turf & Outdoor Solutions, LLC, we value the importance of providing exceptional service to our clients and make sure that reflects in all of our work. This is why our core aeration process involves our experienced team making sure that we hit every spot on your lawn with our core aerator machine. We will walk the core aerator throughout your turf, removing cores of soil during the process. The machine we use is well-maintained so it can perform its job efficiently.
If you scheduled overseeding as an add-on in the fall, we will spread our premium seed blend throughout your lawn. As with aeration, our team makes sure the seeds are evenly spread to fill in the patchy areas on your turf. Overseeding is best paired with aeration because it gives the seeds a better chance of developing successfully since they have better contact with the soil and access to vital nutrients.
What to Do After We Aerate Your Lawn
Our core aeration process leaves behind a lot of soil cores or plugs on top of your turf. You might find their presence in your yard a bit of an eyesore, but it's best to keep the cores where they are because of these reasons:
- The soil plugs will eventually decompose, releasing nutrients back into your soil.
- When you remove the soil plugs, you're also removing the organic matter and helpful soil organisms that will benefit your lawn in the long run.
If you're really bothered by these plugs, you can water your lawn to help them break down. Watering your lawn helps your newly aerated soil as well.
