Lincoln Lawn Aeration Service

Lawn Care: Lawn Aeration

We recommend aerating in the fall so it doesn’t interfere with the spring time pre-emergent fertilizer applications. It also works in conjunction with our winterization application to make sure your grass roots are well prepared for winter weather.

What is aeration and why you should do it

If you want a healthy lawn, we recommend aerating to make sure your lawn’s roots are strong for the entire year. Aeration involves pulling out small plugs of soil to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. The main reason for aerating is to make sure the soil doesn’t get too compact. That way nutrients and fertilizers can reach deeper into the soil allowing the roots to grow deeper. During drought and times of high heat, the deeper grass roots can pull moisture from further depths of the soil. Most lawns in Lincoln should only need to be aerated once a year. If you are signed up for overseeding, the seeding and aeration will take place during the same visit.

HOW WE GET THE JOB DONE

We make the aerating process simple and painless for our customers. We call in advance to establish a date we will be there. If you have underground sprinklers, we need to have them flagged prior to aerating. This helps us avoid breaking any sprinkler heads while the aerator is punching and pulling plugs from the ground. Most homeowners do this themselves, but when needed we can send a technician out to do the job for you as well. Upon arrival, we blanket the yard with our machine to pull plugs of soil out of the ground. Once we’re done, your lawn is well on it’s way to becoming stronger and healthier. It’s as simple as that!

Should You Be Aerating Your Lincoln Lawn?

Homeowners often ask us if they should be aerating their lawn and most of the time the answer is: Yes. Here’s how to know if your lawn needs aerated:

  • It gets a lot of heavy use from children and pets running around. This compacts the soil.
  • It’s on a newly constructed home. Often times new homes and lawns feature compact subsoil thanks to construction equipment.
  • It dries out easily or has a spongy feel to it. This could mean that your roots aren’t deep enough to pull water and nutrients that are deeper in the soil.
  • Was established by sod. The natural soil often gets layered with the sod’s existing soil, creating drainage problems and compacted soil.

If you’re ready to have your lawn aerated, get in touch with us.

We don't just mow.

In Lincoln, lawn care is a broad term that can be used to describe many different services ranging from lawn mowing and lawn fertilizer, to pruning bushes and aerating. That’s why we’ve made it a dedicated point to show that when you get lawn care from Summit, you have so many more options than what you may have originally thought. Although our Premium Mowing and Premium Fertilization/Weed Control Programs are our most popular services, check out our residential lawn care services and see if anything else we have to offer suits your fancy!

We know our reputation is always on the line

Field of Dandelions are GONE!

Thank you to Summit Lawns for a green backyard!!! Last Summer, I had a field of Dandelions in my backyard, I had Summit Lawns rid my yard of them!

I never thought much about what lawn guys wore, but the professional attire that the Summit Lawn has the employees wear certainly takes the icky/creepy factor out of who is working in the yard! Plus they are efficient and do a great job!

Impressed with clean up

Summit Lawn Care is by far the best lawn care service in town! They took care of my lawn like it was their own. Professional service with a smile. They were always on time, never missed a week and I was very happy with my good looking yard all season long. I was equally impressed with the clean up after mowing each week, they took the time to blow all the cut grass off the sidewalks, driveway and porch. It is these little touches that put them above the rest.
