Similar to Lawn Aeration
Most homeowners are also lawn owners. Whether expansive spaces or neat little buffers between sidewalk and porch, grass needs to breathe. Lawn aeration accomplishes that and more.
What is Lawn Aeration?
A professional lawn aeration service pierces a lawn with thousands of small holes to allow vital ingredients deep into the lawn's soil:
Soil compaction over time forces together all the particles of dirt, ground up rock, and organic waste so neither air nor water can properly circulate to feed grass roots. Lawn aeration opens up the soil so grass roots receive proper nutrients to thrive.
What does Lawn Aeration Cost?
The national average for professional lawn aeration is $124. The price ranges widely, though, from a typical low of $74 to a high end of the price range of $190.
Factors affecting price include local market pressures (not enough lawn professionals, too many poorly aerated lawns), geographic location, seasonal variations like the amount of rainfall, and how large your lawns are.
Investing in lawn aeration, dethatching and fertilizing equipment costs far more than the annual cost of lawn aeration; many homeowners try the job themselves once and then seek out professional lawn aeration services.
How Do I Hire A Lawn Aeration Service?
Some homeowners prefer to try doing lawn aeration themselves, using either plug or spike aerators. While both DIY methods can be effective, they are labor intensive, often resulting in sore muscles and lost weekends. Most homeowners trust local lawn and landscaping services to do the job quickly and efficiently.
Look for a landscaper with experience in more than just cutting grass and clipping tree limbs. A quality lawn aeration job can incorporate other valuable lawn treatments:
- Dethatching — This removes dead grass that forms a nearly impenetrable mat at ground level
- Fertilizing — This feeds the newly aerated root systems
- Weed control — A careful application of the right pesticide can allow healthy grass while discouraging water-hogging weeds like dandelion, crabgrass, and white clover
When you contact a lawn aeration service near you be sure to get three bids on your project. Look beyond price alone, to ensure complete satisfaction with the job. Give the nod to a contractor with a local presence, proper licensing and insurance, and a willingness to provide customer testimonials.
