Kansas City Greenest Lawn Service

Professional Lawn Aeration Services

lawn-aeration-kansas-cityLawn aeration is critical for a healthy lawn. Heritage Lawns and Irrigation provides professional lawn aeration services to home and business owners throughout the Kansas City area. A lawn with compacted soil is not a healthy lawn. Water and nutrients cannot reach the roots when soil is packed too tightly. Roots need room to breathe and grow.

A healthy lawn needs regular aeration. We recommend aerating at least once a year. If your lawn has not been aerated in more than a year, call us for professional aeration services. Benefits of aeration:

  • Improved grass rooting
  • Reduced soil compaction
  • Enhanced thatch breakdown
  • Improved air exchange between soil & atmosphere
  • Better soil water uptake
  • Enhanced fertilizer uptake and user
  • Less water runoff
  • Reduced puddling
  • Better tolerance to heat and drought
  • Improved resiliency and cushioning
  • Better germination when overseeding

Why Kansas City Lawns Are at Risk for Soil Compaction

Here in Kansas City, we have some of the worst soil in the country for growing grass. That’s because unfortunately, our soil contains a lot of clay. Clay compacts very easily. We see hundreds of Kansas City lawns every year that need aerating. The good news is that once they are aerated, they respond very well. If your lawn is browning early in the summer, you notice water running off instead of soaking in, or fertilizing doesn’t seem to be helping, it probably needs aeration.

Let Your Lawn Breathe with Aeration

Here at Heritage, we believe a healthy lawn starts with healthy soil. Over time, the soil in your lawn will naturally become compacted and hard. If your lawn has not been responding well despite proper watering and fertilizing, chances are it is the result of soil compaction. Compaction makes it difficult for roots to get the nutrients they need because they can’t reach deep enough. The solution is aeration.

How Core Aeration Works

Aerating pulls small plugs of soil from your lawn allowing food and water to reach the roots and giving them more room to grow. It also helps break up thatch that collects just above the surface of the ground and hinders food and water absorption while promoting fungus and disease. By breaking up the thatch and the tangled roots underground, the grass can establish a healthier root system. Aeration is a great weapon in your lawn care arsenal. It strengthens the roots, and strong roots are the first step in creating a lush, green lawn. Better root development means better tolerance to heat and drought.
