Liquid Lawn Aeration vs Core Lawn Aeration

You’re probably familiar with core aeration, the process of removing plugs of turf & soil in your yard to create breathability and relieve soil compaction. But have you learned about the benefits of our service, liquid aeration? We’ll dig in with some facts and pro advice in this educational blog.

Lawn Aeration Comparison

Core Aeration

Typically done with a machine called a lawn aerator, core aeration removes plugs of soil about ½ to ¾ of an inch in diameter from the lawn. This approach covers roughly 20% of your lawn’s surface.

Liquid Aeration

Liquid aeration sprays a fluid solution that creates tiny pathways in your soil across your entire lawn.

What do these applications have in common?

  • Holes or pathways are created to allow air, nutrients, and water to reach deep
  • Relieves compacted soil
  • Allows roots to grow deeper and broader
  • Promotes greener, denser turf that’s more drought-tolerant & repels weeds

Which Aeration Service Do We Recommend?

We think liquid aeration is better because of several reasons:

  • No more broken sprinkler heads, invisible fences, or cable lines – unlike core aeration, liquid aeration doesn’t require strategized applications around these obstacles
  • Works across entire surface area and up to structures – we can reach every inch of your lawn, spraying right up to foundations & fencing
  • It has a compounding effect; each application builds upon the last
  • These applications penetrate deeper and wider, creating thousands of pathways that remain open for months
  • NO lawn prep required
  • Less pricey than core aeration
  • Your lawn will receive more nutrients, air, and water than core aeration can offer
  • No ugly dirt plugs left scattered across your lawn

When to Aerate Your Lawn

We apply liquid aeration two times each year, once in the spring and again in the fall. With proper watering after your lawn is aerated, results are noticeable within 7-10 days!
