Can I Do It Myself?
Although it is possible to aerate your lawn as a do-it-yourself, there are caveats to attempting to do it on your own. Not only do you need to know whether your lawn needs a single pass or double pass aeration, it can be very time consuming and expensive. Not only is finding the time in your busy schedule difficult, depending on the size of your yard, it can be very time consuming to aerate your entire lawn in an efficient manner.
If you don’t already own the necessary, purchasing or renting a good quality aeration machine that is easy to use can be quite pricey. Not to mention the up keep required to maintain your aerator if you do decide to pursue that route.
What to Expect from Our Lawn Aeration Service?
Aeration, like seeding, is an important part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan, and imperative for a successful pesticide and herbicide-free fertilizer. If you lawn is not aerated, a thinning of the grass may occur, which allows weeds and disease to take over. In addition, lawn aeration improves air, water, and nutrient movement in the soil thereby increasing microbial activity, which breaks down thatch. It also alleviates hard packed soils, especially high-activity clay soils. Broadcast over seeding and soil amendment is frequently recommended in conjunction with aeration.
A licensed technician from Rainbow Lawncare will provide you with recommendations based on your lawn’s needs and what your goals are.
The best time of the year to do lawn aeration is on a yearly basis when the weather is cooler during the spring or fall. Rainbow Lawncare offers two options: a single pass or double pass. Our experts recommend a double pass as it is more beneficial.
With our Lawn Aeration Service you can expect:
