What Is Aeration?

Aeration is a process that involves perforating your lawn with small holes. The aim of this process is to help reduce soil compaction, which can lead to all kinds of lawn problems down the road, like dead spots, root starvation, and other general unpleasantries when it comes to taking care of your lawn. 

Fortunately, aeration is a pretty simple way to fix lawn compaction. Like almost anything worth doing for your lawn, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Rather than having to spend time down the road dealing with layers of dead thatch and debris, dead root systems and a patchy, unattractive lawn due to dead areas and areas that may become overgrown, you can simply have your lawn aerated and give your lawn a shot at remaining uniform, green and healthy. Just the way we like it.

Why Do My Sprinkler Heads Need To Be Flagged?

It does seem sort of funny, doesn’t it: if you’re aerating the lawn, what does that have to do with its sprinkler heads? Why do I need to be worried about them? What does one have to do with the other? Why would they need to be flagged?

Aeration is a process that is done by a specialized machine. This machine can, while doing its job, wreak havoc on your sprinkler system. A sprinkler head that has been run over by an aeration machine is not a pretty sight, nor is a sprinkler line that has been punctured by the spikes on the aeration machine. These spikes penetrate the grass on your lawn and physically manufacture the aeration.

It’s important, then, that we know where your sprinkler system is. The sprinkler heads must all be flagged before we begin an aeration on your lawn to ensure they won’t be run over or compromised in any way by the aeration process. After all, the process is supposed to solve one problem, not create another one.


If we aerate your lawn by the end of September, we’ll give you the sprinkler flagging for free!

As you can see, flagging the sprinkler heads are extremely important to the successful aeration process. While we typically charge a $50 fee for this service, we’re giving it away for free to all customers who have their aerations done by the end of September.

That’s a $50 value absolutely free. We like to call it our “Early Bird Special”.
