Does Your Lawn Need Core Aeration? Cumming, GA

Perhaps you have heard of lawn aeration, or core aeration, to rejuvenate your landscape. Many professional landscapers, including Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, provide lawn aeration services that offer tremendous benefits to your soil and lawn growth. Lawn aeration is the process of removing small soil plugs (or cores) from your lawn. This will help prevent soil compaction and reduce the buildup of excess thatch.

Soil compaction can be a problem because it decreases the spaces in the soil that normally hold air. Your lawn needs air! If there is no space for root growth and a lack of nutrient absorption stunts your lawn’s top growth, it will eventually cause lawn deterioration. During core aeration, pathways are created into the soil that enables oxygen to get to the roots, which allows them to grow and better absorb water and essential nutrients. Professional lawn aeration gives roots the necessary room to grow as well as activates thatch-decomposing microorganisms in the soil. Furthermore, it can also help to prevent the run-off of fertilizer and pesticides from highly compacted areas.

How do you know if your lawn needs core aeration? There are two primary reasons that homeowners will need to schedule a lawn aeration service:

  • Thatch Control – Thatch refers to the layer of dead and living stems, blades and roots that collect on your lawn. Thatch that is less than 1/2″ thick is good for your lawn. However, if it is thicker than 1/2″, it can play host to insects and disease. Basic lawn care aeration lifts thousands of soil plugs to the surface and drops them right on top of the thatch. As these plugs re-integrate back into your lawn, they mix with the thatch and hasten the decomposition process.
  • Clay Soil – Soil that contains clay is heavy and dense and tends to compact more easily. This makes a tough terrain for growth. When you aerate a clay soil, it is similar to the effect when you pull a cork from a champagne bottle. A change in pressure promotes more efficient root penetration, which is what your lawn needs to for healthy growth.

Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping has professionals who are dedicated to making sure your lawn reaches its full potential. We specialize in lawn aeration services that are effective at ensuring your soil and roots are healthy so that your top growth thrives. Could your lawn use some attention at its core?

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!!
