Core Aeration in & Around Carrollton, Smithfield, & Northern Suffolk, VA
Our lawn care professionals will aerate your grass safely and effectively.
Core aeration is a crucial step in getting your lawn in its best shape yet. From improved water and nutrient absorption to increased fertilizer efficacy, core aeration provides your lawn with many more benefits than just reduced soil compaction. If you are interested in improving your lawn's overall health and appearance, call our lawn care professionals at Meadow Lawn & Pest to schedule our core aeration service today. We provide these services to residents of the Carrollton, Virginia area, including Smithfield and Northern Suffolk. We use high-quality commercial aerators to perform our service and we cater our core aeration schedule to your lawn's grass type. We also offer our overseeding service as an optional add-on to our core aeration service.
What does our core aeration process consist of?
Our team utilizes commercial aerators to perform our core aeration service. These machines remove small cores of soil and thatch from your entire lawn to reduce soil compaction and promote better airflow. Typically, it only takes a single round of aeration to loosen the soil. However, if your soil receives excessive foot or pet traffic or has a heavy clay subsoil, it could be more compact and may require a double pass of the aerator.
What is our core aeration schedule?
Both warm-season and cool-season grasses are found in Virginia. Warm-season grasses tend to thrive in temperatures of about 75 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, while cool-season grasses prefer temperatures of about 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Because these two grass types thrive at different times of the year, we will aerate your lawn at the time of year that works best with your grass type. We aerate warm-season grasses like Bermuda and Zoysia in the spring (between April and May), while we aerate cool-season grasses like Fescue in the fall (between September and early November). Catering our core aeration schedule to your grass type ensures that the aeration treatment will be as effective as possible for your lawn.
We recommend scheduling core aeration every 2 to 3 years for warm-season grasses and once a year for cool-season grasses.
We also offer optional overseeding in conjunction with our core aeration service.
You can sign up for just our core aeration service, just our overseeding service, or both. We typically offer these programs together because overseeding immediately after core aeration is twice as beneficial for your lawn as doing either of the treatments individually. After the cores of soil have been removed from your lawn, there are many holes left behind; by overseeding your lawn right after aerating, the new grass seeds will fill these holes and have a much better chance at taking root and growing successfully. Because of this, we offer overseeding as an optional add-on service in conjunction with our core aeration service.
