Georgia soil has a high clay content, making it prone to compaction. When the soil under your lawn is too dense, air, water and nutrients cannot reach the grass roots. Core aeration is a lawn care technique that is used to loosen compacted soil and allows moisture and nutrients to absorb into the soil. At Woodburn Landscapes, we offer professional core aeration as one of our landscaping maintenance services for customers in the greater Atlanta and Sandy Springs area.
Core aeration is a machine process of pulling soil plugs from lawns to loosen the ground, promote root growth and boost the overall health of the lawn. Aeration is an essential annual service for every yard, especially in Georgia. If you think your grass is struggling, core aeration will help your lawn improve in health in 5-6 weeks as it becomes better nourished. The best time to aerate depends on the type of grass you have. Most warm season grasses can be aerated in the late spring and early summer, but some will respond better in the fall.
Professional Core Aeration
Most homeowners or property management companies do not have the right equipment to perform core aeration. Using the right equipment makes aerating the soil faster and more effective. Our crews at Woodburn Landscapes have professional core aeration equipment that will provide the needed soil penetration to restore a healthy root system for your lawn. For Bermuda and tall fescue grass types, reseeding may be paired with this service to grow new grass. Reseeding requires a custom quote based on site conditions and the size of your lawn.
If you have brown or bare patches in your yard, your lawn may need core aeration to loosen compacted soil. Contact our team at Woodburn Landscapes to get a quote on our lawn aeration services. We service many communities in the greater Atlanta metro area.
