What is Core Aeration?

Aeration, also called core aeration, is the process of perforating or aerating the soil, as well as any thatch layer that might exist, with an aerator machine.

The core aeration process removes small cores or plugs of soil from the lawn that are deposited onto the surface to work back into the soil naturally. Aeration for warm-season lawns should be performed in late spring, before the growing season. Warm-season grasses do not require any overseeding or grass seed.  

Bermuda, zoysia, centipede, and St. Augustine are warm-season turfgrasses found in North Carolina. These lawns require core aeration to relieve compacted soil to better allow air and nutrients to get to the root zone. This is often considered one of the best investments for your lawn.  

Aeration usually occurs in the springtime, when the turf has transitioned out of dormancy and has greened up. Aeration is performed on golf courses and athletic fields several times a year, however, homeowners with warm-season lawns should aerate in the spring. Although, in most Triangle areas you can aerate into the early to mid-summer as well.  

Warm-season grasses are rhizomatic plants. These plants grow horizontally under or along the ground sending out shoots and roots. Core aeration creates better conditions that allow these new roots and shoots to develop into new plants. Core aeration disturbs the soil and breaks the plant up. This action stimulates the plant and causes it to grow which can help fill in bare spots in your lawn. Your lawn will be thicker and greener as a result. This sets the stage for the rest of the season.

Benefits of Aeration for Your Lawn

Aerating your lawn allows water, air, and fertilizer to penetrate all the way down to the root zone. This in turn supports root growth, by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating a more healthy and thicker lawn. 

Reduces the chances of having thatch buildup. Thatch makes it harder for your lawn to absorb water and nutrients. It also makes it more susceptible to lawn diseases 

Reduces soil compaction, creating more channels for water, air, and nutrients to travel through. Just like humans, grass plants need water, oxygen, and food to thrive.

Helps your lawn thrive through our hot North Carolina summers and throughout the year. Healthier lawns have a better ability to recover from drought stress and lawn disease.
