I started this business to serve the homeowner who doesn't have the time or means to rent an aerator or de-thatcher from the local rental store. Driving to the rental store, loading the equipment, aerating/dethatching your lawn, raking up the remnant, cleaning and returning the equipment to the rental store, is a hassle and inconvenience! Finding a lawncare company that will do this type of service in a timely manner is hard to find and often way too expensive.
Why aerate? Core aeration is the single most effective way to revitalize your lawn and breathe new life into it. Core aeration reduces soil compaction and thatch, but sometimes the thatch is too thick. In those cases, using a power rake (dethatching) can be very effective in removing the thatch.
The illustration at the right explains the basic need for aeration.
