Core Aeration

Why Aerate Your Lawn?

Here in NW Indiana, from Dyer and St. John, all the way into Porter County, we have mostly clay based soil. Clay makes a great base for a lawn when it comes to structure, but it does lack some of the nutrients that other rich soil types contain naturally.

NW Indiana Lawn Soil

On top of that, in most residential lawn settings, the naturally existing layer of fertile topsoil may have been removed or buried during excavation of the basement or footings. This means your nice sodded or seeded lawn is actually growing in subsoil that is more dense, and higher in clay content making it much less likely to sustain a healthy lawn.

All of this contributes to the overarching problem with our soil: Compaction.

Compacted Soils

Walking, playing and mowing will compact soil and stress lawns. Raindrops and irrigation further compact the soil, reducing large air spaces where roots readily grow. Couple these with our ever changing weather extremes (It may be 80 degrees on April 12 and 31 degrees and snowing on April 15 as we experienced just recently) and you have a high probability of having a lawn as hard as your concrete driveway.

Compaction is greater on heavy clay soils than on sandy soils, and it is greatest in the upper 1 to 1 1/2 inches of soil, right where the roots of the lawn thrive.

What Does Compaction Do?

Compacted soil prevents turf from establishing a healthy root structure. This is important to note because the base of the lawn (roots), dictate how the top (grass blades) will appear in color and thickness. A thicker and healthier base will naturally allow for the support of an even thicker and healthier top!

How Does Aeration Help?

Aeration can help relieve soil compaction, allowing your grass to grow deeper roots and make better use of water and fertilizer. It’s a simple process that pulls cores of soil from the lawn, allowing the soil to “relax” and spread out. This creates more water and airflow through it. Your grass roots will love it!

Lawn Seeding

Benefits to overseeding your lawn:

Many older lawns were established with common type turf grasses not suited for the needs of today’s homeowner. They’re often more disease and insect prone, requiring more fertilizer and water.

Overseeding newer turfgrass varieties into an older lawn can help it better withstand insects, disease, drought, shady conditions, and heavy traffic. The investment in overseeding pays off by reducing the amount of fertilizer. Aeration can help relieve soil compaction, allowing your grass to grow deeper roots and make better use of water and fertilizer. It’s a simple process that pulls cores of soil from the lawn, allowing the soil to “relax” and spread out. Fertilizer, water and pesticides required. Most importantly, a renovated lawn stays greener and looks thicker and healthier!

Correctable problems include:

☼ Poor soil condition
☼ Improper drainage
☼ Soil compaction
☼ Insufficient water
☼ Poor fertility
☼ Poor air circulation
☼ Insufficient sunlight
☼ Excess thatch
☼ Grass varieties not suitable for the area
☼ General neglect

What to do after overseeding?

Depending on conditions and type of seed, new grass seed will begin to emerge in 5-7 days after seeding when moisture and soil temperatures are adequate. An overseeded lawn can be fully established in eight weeks or less.

"Prompt response to my call, came out the next day, sent bill for exact amount quoted. This is a very reliable and professional lawn servicer. Go with these guys."

- Chad, Munster


"After using countless other companies to fertilize my yard, my grass remained looking dormant and not growing very much. My neighbor insisted on trying Midwest Green Lawn. They came out right away and did a soil test and determined that because of my clay soil they had to treat my lawn differently. After only two applications my lawn looked the best it ever had. We are so pleased with the results. I am so glad I found these guys and I will be a customer for life."

- Brian and Vicky, Crown Point


"Mike was very thorough while performing his treatment for weed control. He was professional in his approach and he explained things in a way that even a novice could understand. I look forward to using his service again."

- Linda, St John
