Get the best lawn aeration service in Raleigh

The capital city of North Carolina is home to many amphitheatres, rolling hills, museums, and the scenic Smokey Mountains. Needless to say, Raleigh is pretty rich when it comes to greenery, but sometimes you can't help, but wish that you could bring some of the charm of that greenery into your own backyard. Lawn aeration treatment is something that you need to do regularly if you want your grass to remain consistently green for a long time, and Lawn Love can help you with that.

Lawn aeration involves having your soil perforated which allows the grass roots to better absorb air, nutrients, and water. This can help your lawn become healthier and stronger. Lawn aeration is mainly needed to help alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soil can prevent the proper circulation of water, air, and nutrients due to the amount of solid particles contained in it. Heavy organic debris or excess lawn thatch found buried underneath the grass surface can keep the roots from getting these important elements.

Lawn Love is one of the best when it comes to lawn aeration treatment. We have a team of independent lawn care experts who are familiar with the different grass types in Raleigh, and can have your grass aerated in a jiffy. You can call now at 919-867-5888 if you have any questions, or you can get a price estimate by getting a free online quote.

Raleigh aeration

When you look around Raleigh, it's evident that we're a sharp bunch. After all, located in the Research Triangle, we are home to some pretty smart and innovative folks. Whether you call Chapel Hill, Raleigh or Durham home, we have some of the most historic and beautiful lawns and gardens to enjoy throughout the entire metro area.


Many Attractions in the Raleigh-Chapel Hill-Durham Triangle


If you'd rather spend the day soaking up some culture at the North Carolina Museum of Art or taking the children to the Museum of Life and Science, who could blame you? Or maybe you're more the outdoors type. Do you see yourself spending the day at Umstead State Park? Perhaps you'd rather entertain the family going to Pullen Park and seeing the historic carousel. Since we're home to no less than three major research universities, Duke University, North Carolina State and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, you understand that we take pride in what we do. And we take pride in keeping our homes and gardens looking their finest. To achieve the most attractive lawn and garden takes preparation and planning.


Spring Preparation for the Ultimate Lawn


There are three steps every homeowner should perform each spring to make your lawns look as good as possible; you should thatch, aerate and fertilize. What exactly is thatch? If you look carefully at your grass, you can see a thin layer of dead grass, dried leaves and roots decomposing along the surface of your soil. That's the thatch layer, and having a thin layer of it is beneficial.


Removing Thatch From Your Yard


If you see a thatch layer that's 1/2 inch or less in thickness, you should let it remain, as the thatch has beneficial microorganisms in it. However, if the layer is thicker than 1/2 inch, you should dethatch your lawn in the spring and fall. Remove the thatch using a thatch rake, or you can use a regular rake if it's heavy enough to work. Removing the thatch allows more oxygen to permeate the grass and soil, which promotes a thicker lawn.


Aerating the Soil


After removing the thatch, you'll want to aerate the soil. There are primarily two ways to aerate: spike aeration and core aeration. Spike aerating involves drilling into the soil and poking holes into the surface every few inches. Spike aeration generally goes faster, but it only penetrates the top 1 to 2 inches of the ground. You can purchase or rent an aerator to perform the job for a few hours, or consider hiring a team of yard care professionals for your seasonal yard care. After all, we're happy to help.


Spike and Core Aeration


The second kind of aeration is core or plug aerating. It involves digging small holes, or plugs, into the soil. Generally, people leave the soil plugs in the lawn as they disintegrate within a couple of weeks and add valuable organic compost to your grass. However, if the sight of the soil plugs all over the yard is unsightly, you can undoubtedly rake them and compost them.


Use Aeration to Get a Thick and Green Lawn


Regardless of which aeration technique you choose, aerating your lawn will yield impressive results. Aerating the soil loosens up the soil, allowing more oxygen, nutrients, and water to permeate the ground. Your result? Within 2 to 3 weeks, you'll see your grass growing much more densely. You'll see a lush and luxurious looking lawn that will stay much greener throughout the summer and into autumn.


Fertilizing Your Yard


After you've aerated the ground, it's an ideal time to add fertilizer. Fertilize in the spring and fall to get a greener looking lawn. Be sure to compare your fertilizer options, looking for a high-quality nitrogen-based fertilizer. If you choose a slow-release fertilizer, you can protect your lawn from getting fertilizer burn and turning brown.


Lawn Care Requires Commitment


Taking care of your lawn and garden is a full-time commitment. Every season brings demands on your time and energy. There's cleaning your home's gutters each spring and fall, and hanging holiday lights each winter. Just keeping a regular schedule of lawn mowing and watering requires coordination of your time and schedule. You have to be vigilant about weed control and tree trimming to keep your lawn and gardens looking their finest throughout the year. You may consider hiring a team of lawn care professionals to help you with all the hard work.
