Aeration in Arlington, Falls Church, Annandale, VA & Surrounding Cities
Our aeration service will help your grass access the nutrients it needs to thrive!
Soil naturally becomes compacted due to traffic, weather conditions, or a variety of other reasons. We combat compaction with our aeration service, which we offer in the fall. We use a core aeration method, which pulls cores from your soil. The holes created then allow nutrients direct access to the root system in your lawn. We recommend combining overseeding with our aeration service to build better grass density and fill in bare spots around your lawn. We recommend aerating and overseeding lawns at least once a year for best results.
We offer our aeration service for properties in Arlington, Falls Church, Annandale, and surrounding areas of Virginia. Call (703) 527-6950 to schedule our aeration service so your lawn will stay green, healthy, and full.
When do we offer our core aeration service?
Our aeration process is a great way to combat compaction of your soil, which prevents nutrients from reaching deep into the soil near the roots of your lawn. At Rimble Landscaping, we offer our core aeration service in September and October to maximize the benefits of this process for your lawn. During this time, the cool-season grass in your lawn is actively growing and will benefit greatly from the increased access to nutrients such as water, oxygen, and other vital nutrients. You should aerate your lawn at least once a year to promote the long-term growth of the grass in your lawn.
What is our aeration process?
We core aerate lawns using our own machinery which pokes holes in the soil throughout your lawn. The soil plugs pulled from each of these holes are called cores. These cores, when left on top of your lawn will return nutrients back into the soil as they decompose over time. The holes left from the core aeration process provide a direct path down into the soil for nutrients to reach the roots of your lawn. The increased absorption of these vital nutrients encourages further root growth down into the softened soil.
A strong, healthy root system in your lawn can help your grass fight of disease and insect infestations.
We combine overseeding with aeration for optimum results.
At Rimble Landscaping, we offer an overseeding service which is designed to fill in any bare or patchy areas of your lawn with lush grass. We only offer our overseeding service directly after core aeration. The holes produced during core aeration will also provide excellent seed to soil contact for optimum germination of the new seeds. We use a tall fescue blend when overseeding, as this cool-season grass is known to thrive in our area of Virginia. After the seeds have been dispersed, we will apply a starter fertilizer to jumpstart their growth. As with our core aeration service, we recommend overseeding lawns annually to keep them healthy and full.
