core aerateGeorgia is famous for its red clay. While most states have dirt, we Georgians have to deal with clay that challenges growth for our beautiful lawns. Clay makes it incredibly hard for oxygen, nutrients, and water to reach the roots.

Fortunately, Simply Green Lawn Care can help. We can aerate your lawn to breathe new life into your soil and help grass grow. Learn more about why core aeration is so important:

Core Aeration Service Details

Because Georgia clay and Georgia soil are so compact, we use a core aeration machine to “unplug” your lawn. These plugs of soil will be one to three inches deep and two to six inches apart. These holes allow for plants’ underground systems to truly breathe and stretch their roots. (Don’t worry – the holes don’t last forever. Your lawn will grow new shoots in its place.) You will see immense improvement six to eight weeks later.

Benefits of Core Aeration

The team at Simply Green Lawn Care has aerated hundreds of lawns, and the homeowners have seen an incredible transformation. When you allow us to aerate your lawn, the benefits are numerous. Here are a few to consider:

  • Firm soil will be loosened, allowing the roots to absorb water and nutrients
  • More oxygen will reach the soil which will stimulate root growth
  • Your lawn will be more tolerant to droughts and heat
  • Your lawn will look fuller once shoots fill in the core aeration holes

If you have a warm-season lawn, the best time to hire our team is right now. The best time to core aerate Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, or St. Augustine grasses is spring and early summer. Don’t let another year go by without being proud of your lawn. Contact us today to get started.
