Aeration & Overseeding

Breathe Life Back Into Your Ohio Lawn

Is your lawn starting to look discolored? Are you beginning to see bare patches in your yard? You may have compacted soil. Over time, excessive foot traffic and mowing of your grass can cause the ground underneath to become compact. The situation can be made worse by an added layer of thatch or organic matter that creates a barrier between the grass and the soil. When soil is compact, it doesn’t allow water, nutrients, or even air to pass through it. A process called core aeration performed in the fall may be just the solution you need to rejuvenate an unhealthy lawn.

How to Tell If Your Ohio Soil Is Compacted

How to Tell If Your Ohio Soil Is Compacted
  • Compacted soil: Check with a screwdriver to see if the soil in your lawn is hard and compacted
  • Pooling water: Look for pooling water after a rainstorm
  • Too much thatch: You never want a layer of thatch that’s more than one inch thick
  • Spongy grass: Grass that feels spongy underfoot may mean that your layer of thatch is too thick

What is Core Aeration?

What is Core Aeration?

Core aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil and redistributing them across your lawn. This process will allow your soil to better access water, air, and nutrients, helping your roots grow deeper and stronger. There are many benefits to having your grass aerated. While helping to rejuvenate your lawn, other benefits of core aeration include the following:

  • Improved air exchange
  • Reduced water wastage
  • Improved fertilizer and nutrient uptake
  • Stronger roots
  • Reduced soil compaction
  • The improved overall health of your lawn
