If you’re unsure about liquid aeration, here are just a few of our customers’ most frequently asked questions about it to help you determine what’s right for your lawn.

Why should I aerate my lawn?

Your turf’s roots need water, oxygen, and nutrients to grow healthy and strong. Pores in your lawn’s soil allow space for those important elements to reach your grass’ roots and provide it with the essentials that it needs to grow. By aerating your lawn, you can keep your soil from compacting and killing those channels that allow nutrients to pass and your grass to grow. Once your lawn has been aerated, its roots are able to spread out more and grow stronger. Better yet, the turf becomes more resilient to foot traffic, heat, and drought.

What makes liquid aeration better than traditional aeration?

Traditionally, lawns have been aerated through mechanical means, which does not effectively penetrate deep into the soil or facilitate the distribution of nutrients across the entire lawn. It’s also not particularly good at balancing your soil’s pH, which is essential to its health. In contrast, liquid aeration is a more effective means of reducing soil compaction and balancing soil pH levels, as compared to mechanical aeration. It achieves this by avoiding physical disruption to the lawn and soil, as it is applied as a liquid that can reach the roots without causing damage to the grass or soil. It also provides much better coverage, reaching all parts of the lawn, and is more effective at balancing your soil’s pH.

What time of year is best for liquid aeration?

Your technician will help you determine the best time to apply liquid aeration, but in general:

Warm season turf – including Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, and St. Augustine – should be aerated between April and June.

Cool season turf, such as fescue, should be aerated in September and October.

How quickly will my liquid aeration treatment work?

In most cases, it takes about 24 hours for the liquid aeration to begin working. Depending on the climate and humidity at the time of your service, it may take up to four days for you to notice any results. For best results, you’ll want to thoroughly water your lawn for two weeks after.
