Lawn Aeration Services in Minneapolis

Lawn aeration is one of the most essential services for maintaining a healthy, lush lawn in the Minneapolis & St. Paul area. Over time, the soil in your yard becomes compacted, making it harder for water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. If you notice thin, bare patches or standing water on your lawn after rain, your lawn can benefit from a lawn aeration service. 

Hard-packed soils and bare patches allow weeds to move in. Aeration, especially when combined with overseeding, alleviates both of these challenges. Contact us to schedule your lawn aeration with one of our experts today!

What can you expect from our lawn aeration service?

During Rainbow Lawncare’s lawn aeration service, small “plugs,” or tubes of soil, are removed, leaving behind open holes that allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the soil and be taken up by your turf’s root system. There is no need to rake the “plugs” left behind. Depending on weather and soil conditions, they will break down and work back into the turf in approximately four weeks.

Aeration benefits the health of all lawns, regardless of your ongoing maintenance plan. Aeration, especially when combined with overseeding, helps promote thicker and healthier turf. Without aeration, grass may begin to thin over time. Lawn aeration services improve air, water, and nutrient movement in the soil, which improves the microbial activity that helps break down thatch. It is essential for maintaining an organic, herbicide-free lawn. Lastly, lawn aeration service is often combined with overseeding, creating a thick, healthy turf that looks great and helps crowd out weeds—naturally!
