Early Spring, Late Spring and Fall Aeration
For a really well conditioned soil, aerate your lawn year round..! It
will greatly improve the health and look of your lawn ! Normally when you water the lawn a lot of the water runs off the
surface of the lawn to the street and sidewalk. The water that stays
on the lawn will quickly evaporate instead of getting into the soil,
making your watering and fertilizing efforts wasteful and inefficient.
However, our year round aeration service will keep little openings
in your lawn year round, making watering the lawn so much more
efficient because the water will go right in the little holes in
the lawn every time, effectively soaking up the soil each time you
water the lawn and getting to the grass roots . The soil will be
softer and looser for the grass roots to grow deeper and bigger
into the soil, creating bigger, stronger, deeply rooted grass
