Why do I need to aerate my lawn?

Your lawn faces a beating every year from foot traffic, lawn equipment, harsh freezing-thawing – drought cycles, and general wear and tear. In Lincoln, we have extremely clay-based soil that is wildly susceptible to compaction, which reduces your grassroots’ ability to grow deep and ultimately results in thin lawns. Aeration breaks these cycles to keep your lawn thick and green.

We know the lawns in the Lincoln area and how to perform the perfect recipe for liquid aeration. Liquid aeration does not pull out plugs but rather conditions the soil. This seeps deep into the soil, breaks it down from a micro standpoint, and provides nearly identical results without the muddy mess of core aeration.

The main reason to perform an aeration service is to make sure that the soil under your grass doesn’t get too compacted whichs opens the opportunbity for fresh food and water. This allows utrients and fertilizers can reach deeper into the soil, allowing the roots to grow deeper. During drought and times of high heat, those deep grassroots can pull moisture from further down in the soil and survive these hot, stressful periods much better. Combining this service with Overseeding in the fall is the #1 way to ensure you are continually pumping youth and vigor into your lawn and keeping it thick and ready for bare feet.


People regularly ask us how often they should aerate. At a minimum, it should be done once per year.

Liquid Aeration is really the best way to go, and that takes place both in the spring and the fall. A few of Liquid Aeration’s benefits include: more affordable than core aeration each time it’s performed, no coordinating with the company on when to schedule the service, not having to flag your sprinkler system, no risk of broken sprinkler heads, drain tile, or buried dog lines, and ultimately no muddy mess afterward for kids and pets. This also coincides with the Winterizer fertilizer application, which puts your lawn to bed for the winter by getting the food it will need deep down in the roots

Here are a few ways to know if your lawn needs to be aerated:

  • It gets a lot of heavy use or foot traffic. This compacts the soil.
  • It’s on a newly constructed lawn. Oftentimes new property 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.
