Professional Aeration Service in Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale, & Nearby Areas in Iowa
Our aeration service strengthens your lawn and promotes healthy growth.
Over time, the soil on your lawn will become compacted due to a number of factors such as foot traffic, the use of lawnmowers, and more. When this happens, it makes it hard for the roots of your grass to absorb the nutrients that they need to grow. That's where our core aeration service comes in. Aeration is designed to loosen up the soil in your lawn so that nutrients can reach the roots. We recommend having your lawn aerated once in the spring and again in the fall. We also offer overseeding directly after aeration to encourage new grass growth.
At ETCH Outdoor Living, we keep your lawn healthy and beautiful with aeration. We offer our services to residential, commercial, and HOA properties in Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale and surrounding areas in Iowa.
How does our aeration service work?
Aeration is the process of loosening the soil on your lawn to make it easier for the roots of your grass to receive the water, air, and nutrients that they need. At ETCH Outdoor Living, we perform core aeration using our top-of-the-line core aeration machines. As we run our core aerators across your lawn, they will pull up small plugs (also known as cores) of soil from your turf. As these plugs are removed, they will leave tiny holes in your lawn. These holes provide a path for water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. When your roots are able to receive and absorb all of these elements, it will allow your grass to grow nice and strong.
We offer aeration in the spring and the fall seasons.
The most ideal time of the year to schedule aeration for your lawn is in the fall - either September or early October. This service is beneficial in the fall because your grass is still actively growing and will need all of the resources that it can get to gain its strength before winter dormancy. However, fall isn't the only season that we recommend having your lawn aerated. We also recommend scheduling aeration a second time in the spring. When you aerate your lawn in the spring, you will give it a boost heading into the growing season so that your grass can grow nice and strong.
Overseeding pairs perfectly with aeration.
We offer an overseeding service directly after aeration. Overseeding is the process of spreading grass seeds across your lawn to encourage new growth. This will fill in any bare or patchy areas on your lawn with new, healthy grass. This service is only offered after we've aerated your lawn because the seeds will be able to fall into the holes that our core aerators created, allowing them to establish themselves deep into the soil where they have the best chance to grow. We recommend that you schedule overseeding in the fall.
We apply a starter fertilizer after we overseed to ensure the seeds will have all the nutrients they need to grow strong and healthy.
