Lawn Aeration, to put it simply, is making a hole in the ground. A plug of soil about ¾ inch wide and 2 inches to 6 inches deep is pulled out of your lawn. As basic as this may seem, it is one of the most important services that we perform. Soil in this area of the country is primarily hard, compacted clay. Lawn Aeration helps to loosen up the top few inches and allows the soil to “breathe”.
Lawn Aeration allows air, water and nutrients to get down to the grass roots where they can do the most good. The more those roots can stretch out the better the turf will be. Good root systems make for stronger, healthier grass plants that can more easily handle our hot, dry summers.
One of the other benefits of lawn aeration is the reduction of thatch. Poking a hole in the thatch helps it to move around and break down naturally so that it can’t choke the grass at the bottom. This can also greatly reduce the risk of disease in your lawn.
Our Greenskeeper Deluxe lawn care program includes lawn aeration during the Fall Service in conjunction with over-seeding your lawn. The holes can act as a catch basin for seed, preventing them from washing away in heavy rainfall. The plugs left on top also act as a top dressing for that seed.
So, as you can see, this simple process can be very beneficial. At Greenskeeper, we feel that something that’s as good for your lawn as aeration should be a part of your regular lawn service, not an expensive extra. If Greenskeeper has any secret for its success, it may well be Lawn Aeration!

Greenskeeper recently came out to my home to give the lawn a Spring treatment. I have been using them for a couple of years now. The technicians who come out are great and never a bother at all. They do what they have to do and go–quickly and quietly. The company has great pricing too which is a good reason I stay with them. I highly recommend them. I have no complaints!
Greenskeeper has been doing lawn maintenance and weeding on our property for a while now, and we have yet to have any problems with their service. They come out routinely to do touch ups and are always right on time. They do a great job on the maintenance, and actually leave us an invoice in the mail telling us the rundown of exactly what they did that day. You don’t have to be there while they do their work either; we can trust them to get the job done efficiently, without any supervision! It’s highly convenient!
What I like the most about the people at Greenskeeper is that they are very reliable. I never have to worry about them coming or doing a great job. They are always on time and the work that the do makes it so that I have a great looking lawn without having to do any work myself. They have a really good rate which is totally worth the time saved working on my lawn. I have already recommended to some of my neighbors and friends and I will continue to recommend them.
I have been very happy with the Greenskeeper company! They are a good lawn care company and their employees are friendly and conscientious people. I would highly recommend the company to everyone! They do a good job for me!
