Lawn Aeration is an important part of maintaining the health and beauty of any lawn. Without it, soil can become too compacted, full of organic materials such as dead leaves and grass, and generally cut off from proper air and water circulation to the grass roots. Aeration is a process by which tiny holes are made in a pattern throughout the soil, which allows air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This process will encourage the roots to grow more deeply and the nutrients made from water, sun, bugs, and air to circulate more evenly. This single process is responsible for the healthy growth of your sod or natural lawn. Without yard aeration, your lawn will surely suffer from brown or dead spots and will not have that healthy green color you desire. And this problem will compound every year until your grass eventually needs to be uprooted and replanted.


Aeration requires specialized equipment, processes, and maintenance that need to be employed with great precision and timing to make aeration successful in restoring health to any lawn. ABQ Lawn Care is considered to be a specialist in proper aeration techniques.

Using the proper aerators, we at ABQ know exactly how and when to aerate your lawn for best results. A plug aerator that works to remove a core of grass and soil is preferable to a spike aerator that only pokes holes like a fork into the soil. A lawn core aerator will lessen compaction issues, which spike aerators will actually compound.

The benefits of aerating a yard can be seen rather quickly during the growing season. Bugs will have more room to multiply, grass will become greener and thicker almost right away, and thatch will be reduced to eliminate the spongy feel of the grass. Ground aerators will bring back a stressed lawn or set up a new lawn for success every time. At ABQ, we can help aerate your yard using the perfect mechanical lawn aerator equipment and techniques. Our lawn care aeration approach is known to be the most efficient way to bring out the best in your lawn.

Aeration and overseeding are two excellent techniques for reviving older grass or assisting new grass to grow in the healthiest manner possible. Spring is the best time to begin the process of bringing air and nutrients to damaged or new growing grass, especially in the South where temperatures can be warmer to encourage new growth. And overseeding by spreading new seed over freshly aerated soil is a perfect way to get the most out of lawn aeration.

Worn out lawns encourage weed growth, which can take over a healthy lawn in just a season or two. Lawn aeration, especially when combined with overseeding, can benefit almost any lawn if signs of weakness in health are noticed. It can be an annual process done every spring to make your lawn both beautiful and hearty. We are specialists in the Albuquerque climate, so we know exactly when and how to use the right tools and techniques to make your lawn showcase your home or commercial property.

When searching for the best lawn aeration service, you can trust ABQ to provide everything you ever imagine in both customer service and expertise. The cost of lawn aeration and overseeding your yard is minimal compared to having to install a new sod lawn when your lawn suffers from soil over-compaction and nutrient deficiencies. And lawn aeration and overseeding will cut down on the amount of water you need each year as these processes encourage balance in the soil and the water that you do use is absorbed properly.

In drought prone climates such as New Mexico, that means a smaller water bill and less maintenance for you. And when you combine aeration and overseeding with a newly installed in-ground or above ground automatic sprinkler system like the ones we at ABQ Lawn Care offer, you are sure to get the most out of your water and lawn. You also decrease the amount of overseeding and aerating that your lawn requires, as our automatic watering sprinkler systems will never overcompact your soil from year to year. Before you rip up the old and install new grass, give ABQ a chance to show you just how easy the processes of aeration and overseeding can be and how quickly your lawn will recover from years of neglect and sun and water damage.
