Lawn Aeration Services
As a foundational piece of our organic lawn care program, Pure Solutions core aeration service promotes and sustains a beautifully natural and healthy lawn that will be the envy of all your neighbors.
Pure Solutions Organic Lawn Care Aeration Program
By coring soil plugs out of the lawn, this allows air, water, and nutrients to penetrate deeper into the soil. Helping to provide vital nutrients to the soil and alleviate compaction that occurs from mowing, walking, etc.
Using an efficient and accurate ride-on aerator, a Pure Solutions lawn care technician will mechanically remove small plugs of soil, turf and thatch from your organic lawn.
Our trained organic law care specialist will then overseed your lawn to take advantage of the ideal conditions for germination created by the aeration process. We use specialized seed varieties to provide the best possible germination possible.
Over the course of about 2 weeks, the organic lawn core plugs will break down and provide valuable nutrients to your yard during a crucial time as we head towards winter.
New roots will begin to show in the aerated lawn holes. You may also see some late fall turf growth on your property, depending on weather conditions. Your all-natural lawn is now ready to hibernate for winter and its foundation is set to give it the best conditions for growth come spring.

Help Your Lawn Eat, Breath, Grow and Flourish
One of the best practices you can provide to your property on a yearly basis is aeration and overseeding. The process of aeration helps reduce soil compaction, lets the turf roots breath, and brings new life to the turf stand after stressful summer weather.
What is lawn aeration?
All lawns have a thatch layer which is the layer of decaying turf/grass between the crown of the plant and the soil The thatch layer makes it difficult for fertilizers and nutrients into the soil. Aeration utilizes a mechanical process to pull out a small ¾ inch core of soil throughout your lawn. At Pure Solutions, we leave behind the cores to decay and help feed the microbes in your organic lawn.
Why is aeration and overseeding commonly done together?
With our organic lawn care program, these services are performed together because the holes punched into the lawn when you aerate create a great place for seeds to come in contact with the soil increasing the time it takes seeds to germinate. The seed is also less exposed to the elements/pests etc. Additionally, the lawn aeration holes also stay damp longer, creating a better environment for seed germination.
When is the best time to aerate an organic lawn?
We traditionally aim to aerate between the last 2 weeks of August up until the third week of October as part of our organic lawn care program. This is also when we overseed, because the soil temperatures are still warm from the summer but the daytime temperatures are not as warm allowing for optimal growth.
