Aeration Services for Central Ohio

Aerating your lawn is a great way to reduce thatch, loosen up compacted soils and make it easier for water and nutrients to reach the roots of your turf. This is especially true for the common clay soils found here in Central Ohio.

Even with the best care available, lawns can thin out and lose color due to excessive thatch buildup, hard or compacted soils, or periods of high temperature, high humidity, or drought. Aerifying and overseeding is recognized by turf experts such as golf course superintendents as the best treatment to control thatch, reduce compaction, and help fill-in bare spots and revitalize growth.

Lawn Aeration Illustration

An aeration treatment removes small cores of soil and thatch to allow air, moisture and fertilizer to penetrate down to the root zone. The cores brought to the surface contain microorganisms, which help breakdown the woody thatch tissue. This allows the roots of existing grass plants to spread out and grow deeper, creating a healthier, thicker lawn.


After an aeration treatment is an excellent time to overseed the lawn. We offer a combined program that includes both aeration and overseeding that will improve the overall quality and look of your lawn. Overseeding is best done in the fall when temperatures and rainfall usually provide ideal growing conditions for new seeds.
