Aeration Services in Ankeny, IA & Surrounding Areas
Your central Iowa home was blessed with some of the best natural soil in the United States, but a majority of that ideal topsoil was removed in the home-building process, which leaves us with hard, compacted clay soil to maintain a lawn on. The experienced team at LawnOxygen offers aeration services to homes in Ankeny, IA and surrounding areas. Our aeration services provide a multitude of benefits to all lawns because your soil will be less compact, and grass will have better access to water, oxygen and other nutrients.
A routine aeration services plan will open pockets in the soil which allows for seed-to-soil contact when combined with overseeding. Lawn aeration essentially improves the growing conditions for the turfgrass plants and results in a healthier, more vigorous lawn. Don't be fooled by some of the other aerators out there using "spike" or "box store" aerators that can actually be detrimental to turfgrass. LawnOxygen only uses the best commercial core aerators available to pull numerous, large "plugs" to allow your lawn to breathe.
When should I aerate?
In Iowa, Spring and/or Fall are the best times to aerate. Aerating in the Spring and Fall allows the grass to quickly recover during favorable growing conditions. These are also the best times to grow grass from seed, so many times aeration is paired with overseeding. Contact our team at LawnOxygen today to have us design a custom aeration services plan for your lawn! If you're viewing this on our phone, give us a call and we can talk through your needs with you!
Key Benefits of the Service
Aeration relieves soil compaction, improves water, oxygen, and nutrient movement in the soil, and prevents thatch accumulation. Aeration improves the growing conditions for the turfgrass plants and results in a healthier, more vigorous lawn.
The construction of our home left us with a lot of clay and compacted soil. We have seen the benefits and consider aeration part of our annual lawn program.
We are thankful we found LawnOxygen to care for our lawn after some negative experiences with the bigger companies in town. The treatments are effective and the aeration and overseeding keep our lawn looking great. Easy to get ahold of, flexible, and a quality service that you would expect with a local small business.
I am a firm believer in aeration in both Spring and Fall to allow natural elements into the soil and to provide it with some lift and alleviate compaction.
