    Aeration is one of the more important services for the overall health of your lawn.

    • Reduces soil compaction
    • Increases uptake of water into the soil
    • Makes watering and irrigation systems more efficient
    • Improves fertilizer uptake and usage
    • Creates stronger and more self-sufficient root system
    • Reduces water runoff and puddling
    • Enhances thatch breakdown
    • Enhances heat and drought stress tolerance

    Lawn aeration improves air, water, and nutrient movement in the soil thereby increasing microbial activity, which breaks down thatch.

    It also alleviates hard packed soils, especially high-activity clay soils.

    If you lawn is not aerated, a thinning of the grass may occur, which allows weeds and disease to take over.


    Big Brother Lawn Care offers both a single pass or double pass for lawn aeration.

    • A single pass is usually enough for soft and sandy soils.
    • A double pass is recommended for clay and more compacted soils.

    A technician from Big Brother Lawn Care can advise you on what would be recommended specifically for your lawn.
