Lawn Aeration

Akron Canton Lawn Care is preforming core aeration services in Coventry Township and Portage Lakes Ohio.
The equipment we use pulls cores from your turf to eliminate soil compaction. Where some spike aerators only poke holes in the soil to create further compaction. Lawn aeration that removes compaction from the soil is far superior because it allows air, water, nutrients, and fertilizer to reach the roots in your lawn.

Thatch is natural and when it is kept at an acceptable level, can be beneficial to your turf. An acceptable amount of thatch is a normal part of any healthy lawn. When thatch collects over ½ inch thick it is a major problem. Thick thatch blocks nutrients getting to the roots of the turf, promotes insects and breeds disease.

Why Aerate?

Core Aeration speeds up the process of thatch decomposition, and keeps thatch at an acceptable level in the lawn. With regular lawn core aeration, thatch can be kept in check and not become a problem for your lawn. Most soils become hard and compacted over time. The compacted soil particles do not have the area between them for water, air and roots to thrive.

Core lawn aeration lets the soil expand, and the space between soil particles is dramatically improved. Lawn roots, water and air can penetrate deeper in more open soils in your lawn.

Core aeration in Coventry Township and Portage Lakes OH works with or without seed to improve your lawn. Golf courses in Northeast Ohio core aerate many times a year with and without seed. The golf courses aerate so often because they know the great benefits of core aeration to make turf happy, healthy and look appealing.


1. A property inspection is preformed to take note of any potential risk areas before we start.
2. A commercial Toro core aerator will be used to core aerate your lawn.
3. We use a smaller aerator for hard to reach places ensuring all your lawn gets covered.
4. We clean sidewalks and driveways of any plugs, placing them back on the lawn to allow decomposition. Soil cores are left on the lawn to break down naturally, the natural decomposition is beneficial for your lawn.

Lawn Overseeding by Akron Canton Lawn Care

Overseeding is the practice of planting additional grass seed over existing turf to boost and restore your lawn. It is a great service to add to core aeration.

The grass blades on your lawn get weak and perish with age. Making your lawn vulnerable to insects, disease and weeds. Areas in your lawn that have damage from from temperatures or foot traffic also benefit from overseeding. It re-establishes a strong foundation and elevates the health and beauty of your lawn.
