Get your lawn ready for spring by aerating to allow more air, water and nutrients to reach deep down into the roots. Read on for more information about the benefits of core aeration, or call us at (801) 261-1171 for a free quote!

Core aeration is the removal of quarter-sized plugs of soil that reach 2 to 3 inches deep, and are placed about 4 inches apart. Aeration significantly increases air, water and nutrient circulation, to reach deeper down to the root zone. Loosening compacted soil stimulates root growth. The extracted soil plugs are then used for top dressing. 

Hard, compacted soil and thatch take away your lawn’s breath, and keep precious water and fertilizer away from the roots. Core aeration will create thousands of growth pockets to catch water, air and fertilizer, improving circulation and increasing root growth. Aeration promotes a thicker, healthier lawn and may even reduce costly water run-off.
