Kansas City Lawn Aeration Service

Lawn aeration in Kansas City has been keeping the grass of your favorite local golf courses green for years and it can do the same for your lawn! Lawns that need to constantly appear full and green turn to aeration to achieve that professional level of turf thickness and color. Services like fertilization and weekly mowing are necessary and will help create a healthier lawn, but it is not uncommon to provide these services to your lawn only to see little to no results. If you are ready for a fuller and healthier lawn today, then you are ready for the best lawn aeration service in Kansas!

Best lawn service ever. They always show up on the day scheduled and do a great job. I also appreciate the offers for leaf removal and cutting down a small tree in my back yard after the first hard snowstorm. I highly recommend this company for your lawn care needs.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I’ve used Heartland now for 4 years and they’re great! Their work is the best! If I ever have any issue with a treatment not working for my grass the owner himself would come out and re-apply the treatment. My lawn never looked better! Not to mention they have extremely good rates with their treatment plan. I highly recommend them to anyone!!!

I started using Heartland within the last year and am impressed by how reliable and great they are to work with. If it rains on your mowing day, they make sure you are taken care of the next morning! Great customer service, on a personal level while still fully professional. Their prices are low compared to competitors and still do just as good of a job! I'd highly recommend their services!

What Areation Does For Your Lawn?

What Is Core Aeration?

At Heartland Turf & Landscape, we offer lawn aeration services throughout the Kansas City area, and we utilize core aeration as our preferred method. Core aeration is a popular, highly effective method of lawn aeration. The process involves passing over your entire lawn with our aeration machinery, which works by removing small plugs of soil and thatch from your lawn. As these plugs are removed, tiny holes are left all over your lawn, and these holes will allow your soil to decompress and provide numerous benefits as a result!

What is Soil Aeration?

Having your soil aerated is one of the most important ways to maintain a healthy and vibrant lawn. Aeration allows the soil to absorb water, fertilizer, pesticides, and nutrients more effectively, promoting thick growth. Without proper aeration, a lawn may miss out on beneficial micro-organisms, leading to root stress and dehydration, and causing problems such as thatch buildup. Thatch is a collection of living and dead organic matter that can prevent grass from obtaining water and other nutrients when there is too much of it, ultimately causing damage and promoting disease.Following are the three most popular types of aeration: core, spike, and liquid.

What is Spike Aeration?

This method involves using spikes to make holes in the lawn without removing any of the soil. The spikes instead push the soil down into the ground. It is a much less common method and is better suited for soil that is not compacted. Spike aeration is useful for improving access to the root system before fertilizing or preparing the lawn for overseeding.

Overseeding for A Healthier Lawn

Overseeding means spreading new grass seed over your existing lawn to encourage thicker, healthier grass. This is particularly effective after aeration, as the new seeds can take advantage of the improved soil conditions. Overseeding helps to fill in bare spots, improve grass density, and enhance the overall appearance of the lawn.For more information on overseeding and to learn more about our overseeding service, check out our Overseeding Service Page.

When And How To Perform Lawn Aeration

All Kansas City lawns could benefit from lawn aeration two times per year—one in spring and one in fall. However, many homeowners elect to aerate only once per year, and that single service is typically provided in the fall before lawns begin to enter winter dormancy. Below are a few general guidelines on when, if, and how you should aerate your lawn.

  • Aerate cool-season grasses between late September and October.
  • Aerate warm-season grasses between May and July.
  • If bare patches are prevalent throughout the lawn.
  • If soil is hard to the touch.
  • If puddles form consistently on your lawn.
  • Leave plugs atop the lawn to decompose and add nutrients.
  • Make two passes to ensure full coverage and even growth.
  • Lastly, make sure to ask us about our full service overseeding option, which includes aeration, verticutting, seeding, and a starter fertilizer.
