Lawn Aeration

Your lawn needs to breathe, and lawn aeration is an important practice towards your lawn care. A happy and healthy lawn is dependent on how well compacted the soil is, the nutrients reaching the roots of the grass and how well the soil is maintained to circulate the air within the soil. For long term health and growth of your lawns, we implement our lawn aeration services to such an extent that oxygen, water, and nutrients do not penetrate through the grass while keeping your lawns refreshed and blossomed.

There are many ways of aerating your lawn, however, hiring an expert is the best possible solution as we understand your lawns and know exactly how to take care of them. We also respect your holidays and want to offer our clients with an enjoyable and comfortable weekend while we are taking care of their lawns.

There have been many questions regarding the affordable lawn aeration services – and we are here to help you! The lawn aeration prices depend on how big your yard is.  Most lawn care companies price the square foot size of your yard. However, we have a distinct pattern for calculating and estimating the price of the service for your lawn. We calculate the total square footage using our Google Earth map and then decide upon our lawn aeration prices as mentioned in the chart below:

SQ FT – Acre​                      Price

0 to 4000 1/8 acre​              $75

4001 to 6000 1/8 acre ​       $95

6001 to 8000 1/4 acre ​       $115

8001 to 10000 1/4 acre​      $125

10000 to 14333 1/3 acre​    $140

14333 to 20000 1/2 acre​    $150

20000 to 30000 3/4 acre​    $180

30000 to 43000 1 acre​       $200


When is the best time to aerate my yard?

The best time to aerate your yard is either in the fall or the spring. The soil has to be kept moist and the grass needs to be freshly cut, which is why these two seasons make the best time for aerating your lawns. The soil is normally wet and is in a better condition to be used by the spikes for cutting down underneath the ground to pull out even bigger plugs.


What is the procedure for Lawn Aeration?

The whole procedure of lawn aeration requires innumerable prep work and on-field services. It commences with watering the lawn heavily, cleaning up the yard and removing the unnecessary plugs. Post this, we require our machines to process the seeding and fertilizing of the lawn. The seed and nutrients from the fertilizer will be absorbed efficiently to give you a new-looking clean and crisp yard.  There is an estimated additional cost service that starts at $100 for this service depending on your calculated yard size.


Why should you get your yard aerated?  

This is one of the commonly asked questions. And yes, we have the answer to it! Our machines will plug in ample air, water and nutrients to your lawn soil and the roots of the grass to let it breathe and lead a happy life. The plugs in our machines will clean up all the excreta from your pets or unnecessary weeds that make your lawn look dirty. It is always a good idea to aerate the lawn as it will make your yard healthier. These yards later become weed-resistant which helps to prevent the lawn thatch. We highly recommend you aerate your yard once a year to keep it healthy and stronger.


DIY Lawn Aeration Considerations

It is possible to DIY lawn aerating however, it comes with its own package of cost, hard work and attention. You might have to rent the equipment for the nearby service provider and then consider the transportation costs if the truck is not large enough to carry your aerator. Once you prepare for the equipment, keep a note of the required lawn aeration supplies that include seeds for the “overseeding process” which will help to break up the clay and heavy soils in the grassroots. To further keep the soil healthy, purchase the fertilizers for your lawn care.
