What do lawn aeration services include?

Lawn aeration services include all the necessary tasks to improve air and water circulation. These tasks can involve removing thatch buildup and loosening compacted soil. Some Taskers can do a partial clean-up or lawn clearing before the actual aeration process. As aeration is part of lawn care, other tasks can include mowing the lawn before aeration and composting afterward.

 

Lawn assessment

Your hired Tasker can inspect your lawn and determine its moisture levels. Knowing how moist or dry your lawn is can help your Tasker decide if extra watering is necessary. They can also measure the lawn and determine which tools are appropriate for the job. Your Tasker can use a manual aerator for smaller lawns or a powered aerator for large ones.    

 

Lawn preparation

Some Taskers can mow your lawn beforehand, but this can cost extra. If your lawn covers a large area and the grass is seriously overgrown, you may hire a separate lawn mowing service for this preparation step. 

 

Your Tasker can also water your lawn for one to two days when appropriate, depending on the degree of soil compaction. They can water your lawn until it absorbs the equivalent of an inch of rainfall. This process can make the soil moist enough, so it’s easier for the aerator to penetrate and pull out soil plugs. Your Tasker can also place flags to mark irrigation heads or other objects to avoid while using the aerator.

 

Lawn aeration

When your lawn is ready, your Tasker can proceed with the lawn aeration process. In some cases, the Tasker can take a whole day to work on the entire lawn for the best and consistent results. The specialist may move the aerator following a pattern that covers the whole lawn once. However, it’s not uncommon to go over sparse spots twice. After your Tasker has covered the entire lawn, they will leave the soil cores and move on to the next step.

 

Fertilizing the lawn

The Tasker may recommend either raking the soil cores and dumping them into a compost pile or leaving them to decompose and supply additional nutrients to your grass. Your Tasker can explain the benefits of either measure, and you can decide what to do from there. After you’ve agreed on the fate of the soil cores, your Tasker can go ahead with fertilizing your lawn. They can apply fertilizer, compost, sand, peat moss, or any combination of these to fill the holes and rejuvenate your lawn. Once your lawn is on track to looking terrific again, you can consider booking other lawn maintenance services on Airtasker!
