What is Power Core Aeration?

Core AerationPower Core Aeration is performed using a machine that creates thousands of holes throughout your lawn. In its wake, it leaves behind small “cores” of soil (see picture). These cores contain beneficial microorganisms that help to breakdown thatch. We recommend Power Core Aeration at least yearly so if you missed out on spring Power Core Aeration, fall is the next best time.

Fall is the absolute best time of year to seed. Since aeration creates an ideal seed bed, we then overseed your lawn with our premium weed free blend of Turf Type Tall Fescue and Bluegrass seed, which is Blue Tag certified and approved by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance (TWCA). Remember, even the best of lawns require aeration every few years as a maintenance practice. Results from aeration and seeding efforts are enhanced during years when turf stress in minimal.

The benefits of Power Core Aeration are many:

  • Relieves soil compaction, especially in heavy clay soil
  • Increases water retention to conserve water resources
  • Allows oxygen, water and nutrients to make their way down to the roots where they are needed the most
  • Reduces the thatch layer
  • Increases root mass to thicken the lawn
  • Creates an ideal seedbed
