Aeration in Minneapolis, MN
Minneapolis is a unique city. Called 'City of Lakes' because of the 13 lakes within its boundaries, it's among the most literate cities in America. Minneapolis has more bike trails than any metropolitan area besides Portland and more theatre seats per person than everywhere except New York City. Plus, no child in Minneapolis is ever more than 1/4 mile from a park in which they can play. It's a 'high culture', socially conscious city where more people ride their bikes to work even during the winter than most other major metropolitan areas. Commute times are reasonable, a mere 40-minute drive from downtown and you'll be surrounded by farms and woods.

In Minneapolis, people love their lawns. It adds to the verdant beauty of the city. And for years when people want to make sure their lawns remain healthy and green, they have turned to us. Our lawn care services have helped to transform people's lawns into vibrant, green, natural oxygen-producing machines. People in Minneapolis know the importance of clean air for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. A growing number of them call us at the first sign that the health and beauty of their lawn is starting to deteriorate. Often the culprit is tangled and compressed organic matter called thatch.
Aeration is the Solution
People in Minneapolis spend lots of time enjoying the green space around their homes. But excess foot traffic can compress dead grass and compact topsoil. This excess pressure creates thatch that prevents air and water from penetrating the ground. It also can stifle any new grass that's trying to grow. This results in weak, unsightly, undernourished lawns. But we have a simple solution that can help keep lawns vibrant, green, and healthy all year long. That solution is aeration. Lawn Love providers have the tools and techniques to break up the thatch and allow your lawn to flourish. This is known as aeration.
What is Aeration
Aeration is the process of breaking up the impermeable thatch that can choke the grass, loosening up the soil and allowing air, water, and nutrients to get to the roots of the grass in a lawn. Aeration allows for proper drainage and enables the grassroots to penetrate better and spread out deep into the soil. This leads to healthy, well-nourished, strong, beautiful lawns. The average lawn needs to be aerated at least once a year. In Minneapolis where people and pets spend lots of time outdoors, enjoying their lawns, it's recommended aeration be done twice a year. Once at the beginning of spring and then in the fall.
Tools And Techniques
Proper aeration requires the use of the right tools and techniques. If aeration isn't done correctly, it can cause damage to the lawn. Lawn Love providers use the latest aeration tools to penetrate the soil, break up the thatch, and help your lawn to breathe.
The Importance of Aeration
A healthy lawn releases copious amounts of oxygen into the atmosphere. However, a weak, sickly, lawn can quickly be overrun with aggressive weeds that drain the nutrients out of the soil, choke the grass, and eventually kill the lawn. In a city like Minneapolis, where people are into walking, running, hiking, biking, and other fitness activities, having healthy lawns to pump fresh oxygen into the air is crucial. Aeration plays a significant role in this process. It helps your lawn to breathe and better absorb the water and nutrients it needs to be healthy and beautiful, and replenish the oxygen in the air.
The Aeration Process
The aeration process we use is simple and effective. We use a combination of effective tools and equipment and proven techniques and methods to break up the thatch and impenetrable compressed soil underneath your lawn. The process involves using core or spike aerators to scoop and break up plugs of turf. This process recreates the natural gaps in the soil that help air, water, and nutrients to flow in and out freely. Your lawn care provider will typically slowly push a specially-designed lawn aeration machine across your lawn. This machine aerates the lawn to encourage healthy grass growth.
