Aeration Service in Calgary, AB & Nearby Areas Including Airdrie & Chestermere
We have proudly served the Calgary area since 1985.
Treat your lawn to the ultimate pick-me-up of aeration! We offer aeration services in both the spring and fall. It's recommended that you aerate at least once per year, and twice a year is ideal for heavy clay-based soils common in Alberta areas like Calgary, Airdrie, and Chestermere. After we aerate your lawn, the cores will stay behind, but you can let them decompose and they'll add nutrients back into the soil. It's like a mini fertilizer treatment! By following aeration with overseeding, you will be taking advantage of the newly created holes that will nest the new grass seeds and increase the chances of germination. This combination will give you the lush lawn you've always wanted!
When do we offer aeration?
Over time and especially with heavy foot traffic, your lawn's soil will become compacted, stunting the flow of nutrients to the roots of your grasses. Aerating your lawn at least once a year is important to combat this, and for the heavy clay-based soils common in Alberta, twice a year may be ideal because clay-based soils compact more easily than sand-based soils. We offer aeration in both the spring and fall so that you can aerate your lawn on a schedule that works for you and your lawn's needs. This will keep air and water flowing freely into your soil, and your lawn will thank you!
We are proud to be family owned and operated!
What should I do after my lawn is aerated?
Once your lawn has been aerated, you'll be left with soil cores spread across the lawn and may be wondering what to do with them. The answer is nothing! You can simply let them decompose naturally and they will disperse themselves back into your lawn. What's great about this is that they'll add nutrients back into your soil, almost like a mini fertilizer treatment! If you want them to clear out sooner, you can always break them up with a rake or mow over them to speed up decomposition. Otherwise, if you want to lean back and let nature do the work on its own, that's fine!
Why should I schedule overseeding with my aeration service?
If you want to capitalize on your freshly aerated lawn, scheduling an overseeding service afterward can be an excellent way to do so. The newly created holes in your lawn are prime real estate for new growth, so by overseeding, you're giving those grass seeds the best possible opportunity to germinate deep in your soil and grow lush grass blades to fill out your lawn. In the Calgary area, we can overseed any time of the year with good results, except for July and August. That makes it easy to pair our overseeding service whenever you want to schedule our aeration service! Whether you choose the spring or the fall for our aeration and overseeding duo, overseeding only needs to be done once annually.
We overseed with a mix of Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, and ryegrass.
