• what is aeration?

    CORE AERATION IS THE REMOVAL OF QUARTER SIZED PLUGS OF SOIL THAT REACH 2-3 INCHES DEEP (4 INCHES APART) THIS ALLOWS 50% MORE AIR, WATER AND NUTRIENTS TO REACH DEEPER DOWN TO THE ROOT ZONE. THE PLUGS EXTRACTED ARE USED FOR TOP DRESSING. LOOSENING THE COMPACTED SOIL STIMULATES ROOT GROWTH AND WILL REDUCE COSTLY WATER RUN OFF BY MORE THAN 50%. HARD COMPACTED SOIL AND THATCH TAKE AWAY YOUR LAWNS BREATH. THEY ALSO KEEP WATER AND FERTILIZER AWAY FROM THE ROOTS. LET US OPEN UP YOUR SOIL AND HELP CONTROL THATCH WITH POWER CORE AERATION. THIS WILL CREATE THOUSANDS OF GROWTH POCKETS TO CATCH WATER, AIR AND FERTILIZER AND INCREASE ROOTING.

    when is the best time to aerate?

    LAWNS CAN BE AERATED AT ANY TIME, HOWEVER THE BEST TIME IS IN THE FALL AS THIS SERVICE WILL NOT NEGATE CRABGRASS PREVENTERS THAT ARE APPLIED IN THE SPRING. PLUS FALL AERATION CREATES A SEED BED SHOULD YOU DECIDE TO OVERSEED WHICH WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

     

     

    why do you need to know if I have a irrigation system or dog fence?

    WE ASK ABOUT THE IRRIGATION SYSTEM AND ELECTRONIC DOG FENCE TO MAKE SURE NO DAMAGE IS DONE TO THESE SYSTEMS DURING AERATION.

    AT THIS TIME WE DO NOT MAINTAIN IRRIGATION SYSTEMS.
