Core Aeration

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 $88.40 (plus GST)
