The aeration service is done usually middle of April to end of May and can be done in the fall as well. We ensure that the aeration is done properly and that every square foot is covered.

The main purpose of aeration is to relieve compaction and thatch buildup in the turf after the winter. The combination of freezing temperatures and compacted snow on your lawn the entire winter can cause damage to your turf. The best way to fix that is through aeration in the springtime.

After the service is completed, we recommend watering the lawn heavily in the morning for the first couple of weeks. After that the aeration cores will have decomposed and the lawn should be less compacted, your soil will be healthier and the lawn will start to green up.

Before we come to service your lawn for aeration we recommend:

  • Marking your sprinkler (irrigation) system
  • Raking away any leaves, pine needles, branches or debris that may interfere with the aerator
  • Removing any chairs or patio furniture on the lawn
  • Ensuring that any dog droppings are removed from the lawn

Lawn Aeration FAQ

How much should I water after aeration?

We recommend early morning watering sessions that accumulate to 1 inch per week. We also recommend fewer heavy watering sessions over frequent shorter watering session. Watering should also be done in the morning opposed to the afternoon or evening.

yard-dawgs-calgary-lawn-aerationDo you rake up all the cores left over after the job is done?

No we don’t and we don’t recommend doing it, the cores will eventually decompose and top dress the lawn especially after it’s been watered. The cores usually take about 2-3 weeks to fully disappear from your lawn. Once gone, your lawn will have a fresh layer of new soil that will help stimulate root growth and yield greener grass.

Is it okay to aerate in the rain?

Definitely, unlike power raking, aeration is great to do in the rain since generally speaking the turf will be less compacted and the aerator can penetrate deeper. Aeration can be done at anytime during spring as long as there isn’t snow on the ground.

A lawn aeration is extremely beneficial and affordable for home owners, it is one of the most commonly ordered services here at Yard Dawgs, especially in our Golden Retriever lawn package. When done properly and with proper watering, the results are amazing. Your lawn will thank you and so will your neighbors. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, so if you’re not happy with the services, give us a call and we will get it fixed for you or return your money back; no questions asked.
