Lawn Aeration Services

If your lawn is looking tired, it’s time to give Mother Nature a helping hand. Aeration is an important step in maintaining a healthy lawn because it allows moisture, air, and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass more thoroughly. Homeowners barely have the time to mow a lawn, let alone keep it as healthy as it can be. Blue Duck Lawn Care can take care of this crucial task for you. If you live on the northside of Indianapolis or the greater metro area, request an estimate for lawn aeration services or call us at (317) 748-3153.

Does My Lawn Need Aerated?

The aeration process involves perforating the soil with a tool that creates small holes in the ground, allowing for a certain amount of overseeding. The holes also loosen the soil so the lawn can absorb more water, air, and fertilizer. How do you know if you need to aerate your lawn? Here are a few things to consider:

  • If your yard is the neighborhood hangout area with lots of activity, all that traffic compacts the soil and doesn’t allow the grass to develop deep roots. Happy grass has deep roots; they make the grass resistant to disease and dry periods. Aeration breaks up compacted soil.
  • If you have thick thatch, aeration can be a practical solution.
  • If your lawn was added as part of a new-home build, it may be suffering from heavy compaction and in need of this service.
  • If your lawn’s root system is thin or shallow, aeration can add complexity.
  • If you have very heavy clay soil and your grass looks weak and thin, your lawn may need to be aerated.

Benefits of Professional Lawn Aeration

Aeration needs to be completed by a professional who understands exactly how this process works. It can be difficult to know when it’s best to aerate one’s lawn. There are specific conditions when aeration is necessary, and if not completed correctly, it can cause even more damage to your property. The best time to have your lawn aerated is in the fall. The moisture levels in the soil are also important. The soil needs to have some moisture but not too much. Otherwise, the process can stress out your grass and make it look worse. That’s why we suggest hiring a lawn aeration company to help.

When we aerate your lawn, we also overseed it for you. Just after aeration is the optimum time to spread new grass seed and get your lawn looking greener and denser in less time. Another benefit of yard aeration service is that it helps new grass seed to have direct contact with the soil and germinate where it can grow. A dense patch of grass is a prime defense against dry Indiana summers. The denser the grass is, the better it protects the soil from dying out quickly. Our expert team performs each of these tasks while aerating our customer’s lawns:

  • Apply 5lbs of overseeding.
  • If you’re a part of one of our fertilization programs, we’ll send you flags to mark any buried cable lines, sprinkler systems, and invisible dog fences, so we can avoid these areas.
Three Keys To A Beautiful Lawn

In the fall, our double pass core aeration relieves compaction and promotes deeper rooting. Deep roots allow grass to maintain its health longer in stressful times of the season, such as summer heat and drought. This should be done yearly in the fall.

Our fertilization is key to keeping the lawn well fed and promotes strength against stresses and diseases. Our weed control reduces weeds from taking up space and creating bare areas in the lawn. These bare areas would be prime real estate for grassy weeds the following summer. This should be done each season.

A thick lawn naturally repels weeds by filling in and reducing the area that weeds find desirable, lessening the amount of chemical weed control needed throughout the season. The new seed germinates and replaces grass plants that may have expired due to stress and disease the year before, keeping the lawn young and healthy. This should be done yearly at the same time as the aeration.

The Homeowner Holds The Key To A Healthy Lawn

During the season, your mowing height should be adjusted. Mowing at 3 to 3½ inches in spring and fall, and mowing at 4 inches or more in the summer helps relieve stress, conserve moisture and keeps the lawn cooler. This all promotes deeper rooting and an overall healthier lawn. Remember to cut often enough that you are only removing the top ⅓ of the blade each time you cut.

Watering is the most important thing a homeowner can do to unlock the true potential of their lawn. Watering early in the day 2 to 3 times a week, with 1 to 2 inches of total watering per week allows the lawn to access nutrients, create food through photosynthesis, and keep itself cooler through evaporation.
