As a homeowner, you do everything you can to make sure your lawn looks great. You water frequently and fertilize often, but without aeration, your lawn can still look dry and patchy. Aeration is an essential step that many homeowners often overlook when caring for their lawn. Many different factors can compact your lawn, which causes water, fertilizer, and oxygen restriction to the roots of your grass. Due to the heavy clay soil in the Carolinas, the need for aeration services annually is crucial. Are you wondering about aeration for your home? Here are a few of our most commonly asked questions.

Why Is Aeration Necessary for My Lawn?

Soil compaction can be caused by many different factors, including pets, vehicles, sport activities, mowing, and playing. When compacted, the essential nutrients that your grass needs to grow, such as water, fertilizer, and oxygen, cannot easily reach the roots. At GrassRoots Turf, we use a core aerator to remove small cores, allowing your soil to expand, and the plant’s roots to easily soak up the necessary nutrients. Other lawn care companies in the Charlotte and Fort Mill areas may use spikes to penetrate the soil, but this is not as effective because it simply compacts the soil even more. Our highly trained lawn care specialists use industry-leading core aerators to precisely aerate your soil, leaving you with a stronger and healthier lawn. Consistent aeration treatments can also help your turf resist elements like foot traffic, extreme temperatures, and drought.

When Should I Aerate?
Studies show that aeration is most effective during seasons of high root growth and least effective during seasons of high temperatures or drought. Our GrassRoots Turf team is highly educated in the varieties of turf that we see in our area and able to help you determine when it’s the best time to aerate. Every lawn throughout the Carolinas is unique, which is why we recommend having a lawn care specialist evaluate first, but here are a few guidelines to get you started.

Warm season turf, such as Bermuda and Zoysia, require aeration in early spring, typically between April and June.

Cool season turf, such as fescue, rye, or bluegrass, does best when treated in early fall, ideally in September or October.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Once your lawn has been properly aerated, our technicians provide an overseeding service (cool season turf only). Overseeding is a process where grass seed is planted over the existing lawn to create a thicker, healthier turf. At GrassRoots Turf, we are proud to say that we only use the highest quality seed blends, and we use 50% more seeds than our competition in the Charlotte and Fort Mill areas.

After aeration and overseeding is done, homeowners may see results as soon as two weeks, and long-term results within 4 to 8 weeks, depending on your soil and the weather conditions. Our team is dedicated to providing you with unbeatable customer service, so if you have questions or concerns about your aeration and overseeding treatment, please don’t hesitate to ask!

For optimal results, it is important to have professional lawn care after an aeration and overseeding treatment. We also recommend thoroughly watering your lawn daily for two to three weeks to ensure that the new seeds have the conditions they need to thrive. GrassRoots Turf of Charlotte offers many customizable lawn care programs that will help you maintain your lawn after an aeration and overseeding treatment. You can count on our team to provide top-notch, hassle-free lawn care services where you truly feel like you get your money’s worth

What Type of Aeration Is Best for My Lawn?

As a full-service lawn care company, we offer two different types of aeration: core aeration and liquid aeration. Either aeration method will benefit your lawn, but it is important to note that they work differently. Our highly trained and experienced technicians are here to help you select the type of aeration that will work best for your Charlotte or Fort Mill property.

Liquid Aeration: Liquid aeration has an active ingredient that creates cracks in the soil, allowing important nutrients to reach the roots of your turf. Liquid aeration can have slower results, but have other benefits as it does not damage any of the healthy turf. Liquid aeration is a safe option for yards with areas that require extra caution, like invisible dog fences or fiber cables that are not buried very deep. Liquid aeration is non-invasive and permeates your entire yard for beautiful and full results. Liquid aeration is an excellent option for many yards, but it is not as effective for soils that are highly compacted and require a core aeration to alleviate the compaction..

Core Aeration: When core aerating, our team uses a machine to remove small cores from your lawn so that water, oxygen, and fertilizer can make its way to turf roots. With core aeration, you can enjoy quick results. Core aeration is also more suitable heavy clay soils. At GrassRoots Turf, we have the proper equipment to provide hassle-free aeration for your home’s lawn.
