Aeration Services Frequently Asked Questions

Do you recommend power raking?

Power raking is typically not recommended due to the fact that it can be more harmful than beneficial to lawns.  Power raking can remove too much grass and stress the existing root system, which can cause more weeds and bare spots.  Aeration in the spring and fall is the most beneficial way to remove thatch.  If you do notice excessive thatch, due to dry winter months, you can lightly rake those areas in the spring.

Should i water my lawn prior to my aeration service date?

If the weather on days before your aeration are dry, please water your lawn thoroughly. You will get better, deeper aeration in the water-softened soil.

A quick way to know if the soil is moist enough is to push a screwdriver into the soil. If the screwdriver penetrates easily, you are OK. If it is hard to push in, water about 1″ and test again.

Aeration should be done at least once per year for lawns that receive moderate amounts of traffic. For highly utilized lawns, you may need to aerate more often.

Try to mow one or two days before we arrive.

We ask that you also clean up any leaves, trash or other debris which might interfere with the aeration.

Do i need to mark my sprinkler heads prior to the service date?

Yes, we ask that you flag hidden objects in your lawn, such as sprinkler heads, in-ground lights, invisible fences, valve box covers, etc. J. Rick Lawn & Tree is not responsible for accidental damage to hard-to-see objects in the lawn that are left unmarked.

Do i need to remove the aeration plugs?

No, after a few weeks of watering, they will go away on their own. It is best to let them break down naturally in your lawn.
