Core Aeration (Spring or Fall)

Improve your lawn’s overall health with core aeration and enhance soil uptake of water and fertilizer, increase stress tolerance induced by heat or drought and create stronger roots.

Core Aeration removes small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn, allowing your lawn to breathe.  These plugs are then left on your lawn to decompose, with the holes filling in within a few weeks, depending on time of year, weather and soil conditions.

This service is recommended once per year in the Spring or Fall.

PRICE STARTING AT:  $111.00 (plus GST)

Signs That Your Lawn is Compacted: 

  • Water pools on your lawn after watering or after a heavy rain. When soil is compacted water has a hard time soaking into the ground and instead pools.
  • Your lawn is brown. When soil is compacted water has a hard time soaking into the ground to reach the roots, your grass doesn’t get enough water and turns brown.
  • Lawn feels spongy.
  • Thick hatch covers your lawn.
  • Your lawn has areas where the grass is thin, grows poorly or even bare soil.
  • The ground is so hard that you have a difficult time digging into the soil with a shovel.
  • If you have trees around compacted soil, you may find that they are in poor health.

  • Reduces water runoff and puddling
  • Assists drainage
  • Encourages deep grass roots (within two to three weeks)
