Core Aeration Is a Key Element to Any Lawn Care Regimen.


Banon Aeration Services have a higher coring success rate because we use cam driven core aerators versus the typical barrel tine aerators our competitors use, which often roll right over hard soils and matted grasses.


Determining whether a lawn needs aeration or not can be a bit tricky. With Banon Certified Technicians the key elements which determine the necessity of performing an aertion are as follows;


- Is the lawn full, thick, healthy and without bare areas ?

- Is there a Thatch layer ?

- Does the soil have layers of clay soils ? 

- When watering, does the soil take in the moisture or does it pool and drain off ?

- Are there areas in the lawn where you just can't seem to grow grass ?

- Does the lawn have a history with "lawn disease" ?

- Are there areas of the lawn that see frequent traffic from people or pets ?

- Is the soil cracked ?

These type of question's can help determine how often core aeration should be done.


How often and at which point in the season to perform a core aeration are two different questions. How often would be answered as, once a year or once every two years or simply as needed. At which point should aeration be done i.e. spring or fall, would be determined by current soil conditions. If the soil has a good loamy top layer ( it accepts moisture rather easily and the turf grows thick rich with color ) fall would generally be the appropriate season for aeration to simply maintain healthy soil and turf conditions. However if there are bare areas and thin patches of grass with hard dense soils and seeding may be necessary to get the lawn healthy and full, a spring aeration may be determined as the best choice.


Our service technicians provide aeration to prevent such things as thatch, lawn disease, water damaged area where standing water is an issue and to relieve soil compression either do to normal compaction from the variable seasons or clay soils. Clay Soils are an issue that causes soil compaction because clay expands at greater volume during hot seasons than actual dirt and shrinks and hardens in the winter time. This type of issue usually presents itself as "cracks" in the soil throughout the lawn.
