What is a Lawn Aeration?

aeration3Aeration is the mechanical removal of cores or plugs from the soil in a turf grass lawn. The plugs are removed with a machine called an aerator. The aerator rolls over the grass with hollow tines. The tines are pressed into the soil with weight or driven by a cam shaft. Soil pushes through the hollow tines, creating a plug. These plugs are typically 2-3.5 inches long depending on soil type, moisture, compaction, and the amount of thatch buildup in a lawn. These plugs contain soil, roots, thatch and of course grass.

  • “My front and back yards were almost lost to disease and killer weeds last year. I really thought I was looking at a complete tear out and re-sod. After reading the reviews about Happy Roots, I opted to give them a try this past spring. All I can say is I could not be happier with the results… The maintenance crews never skipped a beat. My lawns were cut every week without fail and all additional services performed in a timely manner… I recommend them 100%!!!”
