Not sure if liquid aeration is the right choice for your lawn? Here are just a few of our customers’ most frequently asked questions about liquid aeration.

Why should I aerate my lawn?

Soil, water, oxygen, and fertilizers face a challenging task in reaching the roots of turf and delivering the necessary nutrients for growth. By aerating the soil, we alleviate the problem of soil compaction and create room for chemical nutrients and oxygen to infiltrate the soil. As a result, the roots of your lawn can expand and become stronger, leading to improved resilience to foot traffic, heat, and drought.

What makes liquid aeration better than traditional aeration?

In the past, mechanical aeration was the traditional method used for lawns, but it came with some drawbacks. It was not very effective at balancing soil pH and could not penetrate deeply into the soil, preventing nutrients from reaching the entire lawn. It’s also not particularly good at balancing your soil’s pH, which is essential to its health. However, with liquid aeration, these issues are resolved. Liquid aeration decreases soil compaction as well as or better than mechanical aeration, but it does so without physically disrupting the lawn. Because it’s applied as a liquid, it reaches the roots without traumatizing the grass or soil. It is also more effective at balancing soil pH, ensuring the health of your lawn.

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?

For most jobs, it takes about 24 hours for the liquid aeration to begin working. But it can depend on the climate and humidity at the time of your service, sometimes taking 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.
