Core Aeration

Have a lawn you can be proud of

Ready for a thicker, healthier lawn?

Warm-season grasses like Bermuda, Zoysia, St. Augustine and Centipede should be core aerated every spring. Core Aeration promotes growth and improves the overall health of your lawn. Our Famous “Double Pass” Aeration is the removal of small plugs from the soil allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to get down in the soil.

Benefits of Core Aeration:

    • Loosens the soil providing better oxygenation
    • Allows oxygen, water and important nutrients to reach the root system
    • Roots of spreading grasses are cut as the plugs are pulled allowing roots to spread in multiple directions
    • Drives root depth helping your lawn better tolerate drought
    • Controls thatch
    • Improves drainage of your lawn
    • Helps prevent Dollar Spot and Zoysia Patch

Aeration eliminates soil compaction and helps develop a thicker lawn.


Bermuda and Zoysia grasses are made up of rhizomes and stolons. Rhizomes are root-like stems that may either grow horizontally at the soil surface or in other orientations underground. Stolons are the crown of plant—the above ground growth. The runners of Bermuda are stolons.
Aeration eliminates soil compaction and breaks up rhizomes and stolons allowing the grass to develop a deeper root system and grow laterally. Lateral growth promotes a thick, dense turf which is more resistant to weeds, drought and disease.

Spring is the best time to aerate warm-season grasses.

Our Core Aeration service is completed in the spring by our trained and knowledgeable Route Managers using commercial grade aerators. Spring is the best time to aerate Zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine and Centipede lawns because this is the time when the grass is growing rapidly.
