Get the best lawn aeration service in Indianapolis

There are a lot of things that make Indianapolis a special city. It is where Elvis Presley performed his last concert, Thomas Edison used to work here, and it is home to 200 national parks that lets you enjoy a city that is close to nature. In addition, the city also hosts many sporting events including the famous Indy 500. You too can enjoy everything that this great city has to offer, but you will need to have some free time to do this, which means not spending your weekend doing lawn aeration. Get in touch with Lawn Love because lawn aeration treatment is one of the things we are really good at.
Your lawn needs to be aerated regularly so it can continue to look green, lush, and healthy. Lawn aeration helps prevent soil from becoming compacted by removing small cores of soil from your lawn. With proper and regular aeration, your grass will be able to get the water, air, and nutrients that it needs to stay healthy at an improved rate.
Lawn Love is one of the best in Indianapolis when it comes to providing lawns with aeration treatment. We are taking lawn care in to the 21st century and take great pride in being able to provide quality service to our clients. Our services can be booked in minutes, and you can even manage them easily through your smartphone or computer.

At the end of a long weekend of having fun with family and friends, it's nice to have a beautiful home to come back to. You don't always want to work hard, devoting yourself to yard work all summer long, but you know it's essential that your home and yards look their best. After all, it's a reflection of who you are to keep a well-maintained home, and that includes lawns and landscaping.


What to Look for in Your Lawn


Aeration is the key to making your lawn look lush and full. How do you know when your lawn needs to be aerated? If your lawn shows these signs of wear, it's an indication that you should aerate.


1. If your lawn is uneven, with patches or bald spots, then you should consider aerating.


2. If your yard has a lot of people walking on it or playing sports on it, then your lawn will benefit from aerating.


3. If your grass gets vehicle traffic on it, then your soil gets more compacted. In this case, you should consider aerating your soil.


4. When it rains, you should look at whether rain puddles are forming in certain spots. If there are specific areas where water tends to pool, you should aerate those spots in particular.


5. Test your soil by digging a lawn tool like a spade or pitchfork into the ground. Is it difficult to get the blade into the ground? If yes, then you should aerate your lawn.


Two Kinds of Aeration


There are two ways to aerate your lawn, spike aeration, and core aeration. Spike aerating can be done by wearing aeration shoes, using a rotating aerator or using a hand tool. You can purchase or rent an aerator from your local hardware or lawn care center. If you invest a bit of hard work and energy into aerating your lawn, it will pay off. Spike aerating requires that you drill spikes into the ground every few inches to loosen the ground. Spike aeration pokes holes in the ground to a depth of 1 to 2 inches.


Spike Aeration and Core Aeration


In contrast to spike aeration, core or plug aeration requires that you actually dig small holes and pull the soil plug from the ground. You can purchase a tool for this task, which calls for you to create small air pockets that go to a depth of 2 to 3 inches below the ground surface. Since plug aeration goes deeper than spike aeration, you generally don't have to aerate as frequently.


Let Your Lawn Breathe


Both aeration techniques work effectively and will produce a beautiful lawn of turfgrass. How does it work? Aerating your ground breaks up the soil and creates narrow air pockets, allowing more oxygen, water, and nutrients to be absorbed into the surrounding dirt.


The result? Within 2 to 3 weeks, you notice that your newly aerated lawn is growing thicker and more densely. You'll see that your new grass is more vibrantly green and it will retain its green color even when temperatures rise in the summer and autumn.


Use Fertilizer to Get a Green Yard


When you've finished aerating your lawn, you want to fertilize the ground to promote your grass developing a richer shade of green. Be sure to review your fertilizer choices and pick a high-quality nitrogen-based fertilizer that's slow-release. Should you choose to use a slow-release fertilizer, it takes more time to watch your grass turn green, but it protects your lawn from fertilizer burn. Fertilizer burn is a common cause for the brown lawns you sometimes see.
