Core Aeration is mechanically removing plugs of soil,roots, clippings and grass from the turf in an attempt to decompress the soil as well as control thatch and allow nutrients to reach the roots directly for a period of time.
It is best practice to preform this service one time a year for most applications. However, some soils do not compact very much and require different attention.
The best time of year to Aerate your lawn is in the fall for the types of “cool season” grasses such as Kentucky bluegrass often found in our climate zone.
Often this is accompanied with an over-seed as well to help promote new growth which assists in avoiding disease and thinning of grass for most reasons.
Over the course of the following weeks after the core aeration process you will see the plugs that are left behind break down as the rain and other elements help decompose the softer matter. Quickly turning into nutrients that are not only great for the soil, but actually came from that specific soil/grass on your own property.
It is always best practice to leave behind as many nutrients as possible during the season to help promote the healthiest lawn possible.
