Aeration | Waukee, West Des Moines & Urbandale, IA | Brilliant Borders Landscaping

Aeration Service in Waukee, West Des Moines, Urbandale, IA & Surrounding Cities

We offer core aeration in the fall to ensure your lawn is at its strongest to withstand it.

Compacted soil is inevitable, occurring over time from frequent foot traffic and heavy machinery use, like lawn mowers. However, it inhibits the roots of your grass from receiving vital resources, such as water, air, and nutrients. Fortunately, that's where our aeration service comes in! At Brilliant Borders Landscaping, we perform core aeration, which involves pulling up plugs of soil to loosen compaction and improve resource access to your turf's roots. We offer this service in the fall to ensure your lawn is at its strongest to endure it and recover quickly afterward. What's more, you can go the extra mile and pair it with our overseeding service to yield the best results and make it thicker and denser than ever.

We offer our aeration service to residential and commercial properties in Waukee, West Des Moines, Urbandale, and other surrounding areas in Iowa.

Why do we perform core aeration?

We want to deliver the best results from our services, so we perform core aeration. Core aeration involves going over your lawn with our aerator once or twice if requested to pull up plugs of soil, effectively loosening any compaction, breaking up thatch, and creating tiny holes in the surface. These holes serve as passageways for resources, such as nutrients, water, and air, to easily reach the roots of your grass. With improved access to everything it needs, your lawn can become stronger, healthier, and more resilient to stressors.

We recommend scheduling our aeration service annually to ensure your lawn continues to have optimal access to everything it needs to thrive.

We Offer Our Aeration Service in the Fall to Only Do It When It's Right for Your Lawn

While our aeration service is highly beneficial for your lawn, we only want to do it when it's right to avoid causing unnecessary stress. So, we offer it in the fall, in September and October, because the cool-season grasses in the Waukee, IA, area have ideal conditions during this time; this means it has the best chance of withstanding the process and recovering quickly afterward in time for the winter.

Get even better results from aeration by pairing it with our overseeding service!

Aeration is a crucial lawn care service in its own right, but you can get even better results from it by pairing it with our overseeding service! Overseeding involves spreading seeds across your lawn to fill bare and patchy areas with new grass growth, and the holes created from aeration provide the perfect spot for them to fall into! When they do, they have direct soil contact, increasing the chances of quicker and more successful germination and root establishment. Not only that, but the seeds also have extra protection from the elements and critters, meaning more will grow into grass. Pairing our aeration and overseeding services is the best way to go the extra mile for your lawn and reap optimal results!
