Aeration Services

Looking to aerate your lawn? Great idea!

We follow UGA and Department of Agriculture guidelines and recommend aerating your lawn at least once a year. The best months for this are May, June, July, and August, but you can also have it done in April or September.
Soil gets compacted over time, and that is especially true for Georgia soil which is denser than most types. Annual aeration can help break down the soil so that grass can grow without as much difficulty. If you’re unsure if it’s necessary, try the screwdriver test.

Screwdriver Test

1. Find a fairly flat area of your lawn.
2. Take a screwdriver (Flathead or Phillips head doesn’t matter) and try to push it down into the soil.
3. If the screwdriver easily goes into the soil at least 4 inches, aeration is probably not necessary, but if it’s difficult to push the screwdriver in, your soil may be compacted meaning conditions are not ideal for grass.

We can put you on the schedule for a lawn aeration in just a few easy steps.
