Lawn Aeration Service

Here at JC’s Landscaping we use a form of aeration called core aeration.

What is Core Aeration?

Core Aeration is the process of mechanically removing cores of hardened soil, thatch, and grass from a lawn.  These holes make it possible for air, water, and nutrients to reach the turfgrass roots.  After core aeration, the roots will spread out and grow more robustly.  This will transform your lawn into a blanket of lush, green grass.

Why is Core Aeration More Effective Than Spike Aeration?

Spike aeration punches spikes into your lawn, whereas core aeration pulls out plugs of soil.  These holes allow more air, water, and nutrients to get in.

How Does the Soil get Compacted?

Here in the DFW metroplex, our soil is naturally hard and has a build-up of clay.  This means your soil is most likely already compacted.  When you add everyday foot traffic, pets playing, and heavy rain; your soil becomes even more compacted.  Core aeration is a simple way to break up that soil and let your lawn breathe.

Benefits of Core Aeration

Signs That Your Lawn Needs to be Aerated


If your lawn is often muddy or you constantly have puddles, water is not able to pass through the soil and reach the roots.

It's Fall or Spring

You want to aerate when your grass is actively growing.  Warm season grasses grow when temperatures are between 75-90 degrees Fahrenheit.  The growing seasons for cool season grasses are typically fall and spring.

Discolored or Dry Grass

The build-up of thatch is not allowing water and nutrients to reach the roots.

Failed Srewdriver Test

Stick a screwdriver in your grass.  If you are unable to do so or experience difficulty, your soil is compacted and your lawn needs to be aerated.

Why Should You Hire a Professional

Aeration is hard and exhausting work.  On top of that, you need to be cautious of sprinkler heads and cable lines.  It’s also important to know how deep to perforate the grass.  An experienced lawn specialist will know how to tell if your lawn is moist enough to aerate.  Aerating a dry lawn can feel impossible.

Depending on the season, your grass type and lawn condition; pre-emergent, weed and feed, turf builders, or a winterizer is needed to promote a healthier/thicker lawn with minimal or no weeds.

Irrigation Maintenance

A properly working irrigation system should distribute an inch of water in 15 minutes. The amount of water your lawn needs depends a great deal on which type of grass you have and which season of the year it is.
