Fall Lawn Care: Is Aeration on Your Schedule? Cumming, GA

While it may seem like things will never cool off as we approach fall in Georgia, the cool autumn weather will soon come. When it comes to your fall lawn care routine, there’s more to consider than raking leaves. In fact, fall can be a perfect time to schedule core aeration for your lawn.

Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn

According to, lawn aeration is best described as “the process of puncturing the soil with small holes that aid vital elements, such as air and water, to enter the grassroots. This process helps the roots to grow deeply, which in turn produces a stronger and livelier lawn. The main purpose of lawn aeration is to provide air and breathability to your lawn and the soil underneath it.”

Core aeration can also help you maximize your other lawn care treatments by allowing weed prevention, fertilizer and overseeding to penetrate deeper into the soil where it is more effective. Additionally, if your lawn has thatch, aeration is one of the quickest ways to break it up and aid in its decomposition before it compromises your lawn health.

Why is Fall a Good Time to Aerate and Overseed?

September and October in Georgia is often an ideal time to schedule lawn aeration and overseeding for the following reasons:

  • Soil is warmer and looser (making aeration easier)
  • Weeds are naturally dying due to temperature changes (overseeded grass can thrive easier)
  • Cooler night temperatures without high humidity (easier for young grass plants to survive)

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!!
