Spring and Fall Turf Aeration
Why does Coast Landscape Management believe so strongly in lawn aeration?
After proper watering, Aerating is the single most important thing you can do for a healthy lawn. Aeration promotes root growth and reduces water usage by getting oxygen and H20 into the root zone. Aerated soil will endure drought stress, fill in bare spots faster and resist insect and disease attack too.
Your lawn plugs should be 2"-3" in depth. Such a plug should be pulled out of the lawn at about every 3". If your 'low price' aeration guy leaves tiny little plugs on your lawn, you will not see any benefit. Save your money and hire an honest, licensed turf-care professional.
The plug-removal process is facilitated by watering the lawn the day before, but don’t water to the point of muddying the soil.
Once aerated, leave the plugs. They’ll decompose while adding soil nutrients. Water and fertilize as normal.

Optimally, aerate in spring and fall. And pre-watering will ensure that the machine can effectively plug your yard.
A mower-looking machine drives a roller bristling with 3” tines over your grass. The tines poke into the grass and extract a “plug” which allows fresh air, fertilizer and water to soak into the lawn’s root structure. Well-aerated soil endures drought, fills in bare spots faster and resists insects and diseases.
- Aeration starts the second week in March, weather permitting, and is available throughout the season, ending the second week of November.
