Core Aeration: A Facelift for Your Lawn Cumming, GA
Lawn and Grass Cumming, GA

As the summer days are winding down and the kids are back at school, your lawn is probably a lot less traveled. However, those memorable moments spent on your grass with kids, neighbors and pets running around probably caused some consequences within the soil that you can’t necessarily see. Soil impaction is common after summer, and it is a major threat to your lawn’s health and growth in the coming months. Fortunately, there’s a way to reverse soil impaction and ensure your lawn gets the “facelift” it deserves through a lawn service called core aeration.

Think of lawn core aeration as giving you lawn a chance to breathe and receive optimal amounts of water, sun and nutrients. Thick thatch and soil compaction can essentially suffocate your lawn, so aeration can be the intervention it needs to maintain vitality. Lawn core aeration involves a process in which cores or plugs of soil (nearly an inch in diameter and 1-3 inches long) are removed with a special aeration machine. The displaced soil will break down through irrigation, rain and mowing and form a topdressing of nutrients for your lawn. Some lawns may benefit from overseeding during this time for further growth opportunities. In the coming weeks, you should see new white roots shooting up from the aerated holes.

Benefits of Lawn Aeration

Aerating your lawn, especially in the Fall, can offer valuable benefits towards the health and appearance of your turf, including the following:

  • Provides root zone with greater access to nutrients
  • Reduces thatch build-up
  • Relieves soil compaction
  • Benefits pH changes deep into the soil
  • Allows better overseeding operations
  • Improves water runoff and puddling
  • Prepares grass for winter dormancy

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
