What is Core Aeration?

Core Aeration is the process of making thousands of small holes in the turf. These holes allow fertilizer, water and air to reach the root zone quicker, resulting in new growth and increased root development.


For years, golf courses have known that the secret to a beautiful, dense turf is to aerate their courses 2 or 3 times each year.

These holes also open up the soil and help reduce thatch build up and soil compaction, allowing your lawn to breathe and grow.

The job of aeration should be done at least once annually. It can be done at any time during the active growing season. However, it is best to leave an adequate amount of time before it goes dormant. That way, if you choose to let us reseed your lawn, the new seed will have time to germinate and break through the soil, so your lawn will not be left thin throughout the winter.

Dyna-Green has an expert staff who are highly skilled at this service that is being asked for more frequently. They will not overlook any section of your lawn. Regardless of how large or small your lawn is, its shape, or how hilly it might be, we will be able to get the same uniform result. We also make sure to equip our first class team members with only the best equipment to do the job. Our company uses top performing lawn aeration machines. We get more holes per square foot, and can do it in less time than other lawn care companies. You will not regret it if you purchase this service alongside our seeding and organic based lawn care.

Aeration is an important, but often overlooked, lawn care service. You may ask what the benefit is of putting holes and removing plugs of dirt from your yard. Over time, your soil compacts due to a number of factors. Rainfall, usage such as walking or running on it, and climate conditions all can contribute to the packing down of the dirt. When this happens, it is much harder for water and lawn fertilizer to permeate it, and get to the roots. When fertilizer cannot penetrate, it cannot be absorbed by the roots. When it rains, or is watered by your sprinkler system, there will be an increased amount of runoff, and it will take the newly laid down lawn fertilizer with it. The act of making holes in the soil and removing those plugs relieves the soil compaction, allowing those valuable nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. It also makes room to put in new and improved seed, to make your lawn thicker and more pest resistant than it was before.

When we fertilize your lawn with our organic based lawn fertilizer, not much time needs to pass before you see a greener yard when looking out your window. When we tend to the trees and shrubs in your landscape, you will quickly see an improvement in their appearance. However, when your lawn is aerated, the first thing you see is small clumps of dirt throughout your lawn. That is not a very attractive visual at first glance. However, the results that will follow in the weeks to come will be a thicker, more actively growing lawn than before. Especially if you combine it with our seeding service. Dyna-Green services the entire Greater Cleveland, OH area and we would love to help you get the best looking lawn on the block.
