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

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
