Lawn Core Aeration

lawn core aeration

Most Bay Area soils are heavy clay. With foot-traffic from play and mowing, our soils often become compacted. Soil particles are pressed close together, restricting the movement of oxygen, nutrients, and water to the lawn. As a result, the turfgrass grows slowly and poorly. Turfgrass grown in compacted soils soon become susceptible to drought, disease, and insect damage.

Annual spring or fall lawn core aeration will reduce compaction and make your lawn more vigorous and better able to handle stresses like summer heat and drought, and make your lawn more resistant to diseases and insect damage.
