1. Promotes Stronger Root Growth– After aeration, sunlight, water, and nutrients can better reach the roots of your grass. The result is cushiony grass that is stronger, greener, and more vibrant.
2. Reduces Harmful Compaction– After months of heavy traffic or dry conditions, your soil can get packed tightly together. Aeration opens up the soil to reduce compaction.
3. Lowers Lawn Maintenance Needs– Grass that is stronger and healthier will naturally require less maintenance.
4. Improves Oxygen Levels in the Soil– Aeration creates areas where oxygen can pass through the soil, reaching more roots.
5. Improves Sunlight Intake – Sunlight gets blocked out by impacted grass. Aerating will increase sunlight levels and create healthier grass.
6. Encourages New Growth– With all those wonderful nutrients, oxygen, and water, aerated soil is more likely to accept and encourage new growth.
7. Decreases Run-Off and Pooling/Puddling– Aeration helps the ground soak in the right amount of water instead of having it puddle on the top of the soil.
8. Improves Resistance to Heat and Stress– As the soil soaks in nutrients and water, it is able to stand up to heat and stress better.
9. Improves the Breakdown of Thatch– A layer of thatch, (dead grass and debris that gathers at the top of soil) can destroy a lawn. Aeration breaks up the thatch and encourages proper deterioration of leftover thatch.
10. Reduces Disease– When left alone, thatch creates a perfect environment for disease and decay. Aeration disrupts the accumulation of thatch and helps protect against disease.

1. Relieves soil compaction. Compacted soil can prevent air, water and fertilizer from reaching your lawn’s root system, causing dead spots, patches and/or thinning.
2. Aids in thatch management. Thatch, the layer of dead grass that accumulates on your lawn can build up to a thick layer, robbing your grass of necessary rain and nutrients which can be detrimental to your lawn if left untreated.
3. Increases nutrient availability. Aeration allows air, water and nutrients to penetrate the soil. When nutrients penetrate deeper into the root zone, they become available to the turf.
4. Benefits pH modification. Applying lime or sulphur after core aeration promotes the change of pH deeper into the soil profile.
5. Builds a thicker lawn. Aeration stimulates root development and growth, but cool season grasses need overseeding to help fill in bare spots and thicken up the turf, which helps crowd out weeds come spring.
6. Reduced water runoff and puddling. If you find your yard has runoff or puddling problems after a rain, aeration could be the fix you need.
7. Prepares grass for winter dormancy and a green spring. Before your cool-season grass goes dormant, make sure it’s in tip-top shape by pairing fall aeration with fall fertilization.

1. Aeration reduces soil compaction. Just as you wouldn't try to plant a flower in concrete… a rock hard soil bed is not conducive to a great lawn either!
2. Aeration reduces thatch. Thatch is made up of grass stems and roots that accumulate faster than they breakdown. Excessive thatch creates an environment that is favorable to pests and disease.
3. Aeration allows access to the root zone. By penetrating the soil, you're allowing moisture, air, & food to the root zone where nutrients are absorbed.
4. Aeration enhances seed germination. Seeds germinate easily in aerator holes as the holes provide them a place to hide.
5. Overseeding introduces new grass seed to fill in bare or thin areas as well as thickening existing turf. Over time, grass plants reach their peak and need to be replaced.
6. Overseeding builds resistance to disease. By incorporating different blends of grass seed (Dowco uses a seed blend consisting of at least 6 types of turf type tall fescue) you reduce your risk to diseases that can wipe out the entire lawn.
7. Aeration and overseeding will help to reduce weeds. Opportunistic weeds germinate in areas where they can be successful. Crabgrass grows in thin areas, nutsedge pops up in thin/low spots, and broadleaf weeds spread where there is little desirable grass.
8. Aeration and overseeding will immediately improve your lawn's current appearance. If your lawn was attacked by fungus, insects, or animals this year a core aeration and overseeding will help.
