Lawn Care Aeration in Maryland

Core Aeration vs. Spike Aerators

The decision to core aerate your lawn rather than using a spike aerator has a lot to do with what you’re trying to accomplish to begin with. The entire act of aerating relates to reducing compaction.

Using a core aerator alleviates compaction by pulling small holes from the lawn which reduces the compaction. Using a spike aerator does the complete opposite because the spikes push into the soil and actually create compaction creating an adverse effect on the lawn itself.

Therefore, OrganicLawns would only consider using core aerators. Our aerators are so advanced they are actually used on golf courses because of their efficiency and productivity as well as results.

When Should I Aerate My Lawn?

The best time to aerate and seed your lawn in Maryland is of course the fall. The reason for this is because there is much less weed competition. What I mean by that is there are literally fewer weeds present in the soil at that time of year. This allows for your new seed to germinate and flourish without having to compete for space which allows the seed to flourish and create a carpet like appearance.

This carpet like appearance in your lawn is how many of our customers still compliment OrganicLawns for creating such beauty within their lawn. With fall being the best time to aerate and seed your lawn, it certainly isn’t the only time. If your lawn is in need of an overhaul then we highly recommend aeration and seeding in the spring as well!

Lawn Seeding in Maryland

This part of the aeration and seeding process is perhaps the most crucial in the fact that if you don’t use high quality seed all your hard work and timing will be of no value. We at OrganicLawns believe in the old saying “you get what you pay for.” With seed it applies more than ever in the fact that the seeding industry will offer such a variety of unequal seed mixes and blends that will leave you wondering what is the best seed.

We follow three simple rules with seed listed below:

  • 90% germination rate
  • Zero weed seed
  • Blue tag certified

OrganicLawns will only use blue tag certified seed because it states directly on the label not only the quality of the seed in the bag but more importantly that the contents which is the grass seed is actually tested by professionals. As a leading aeration and seeding company, we use the best seed in the industry hands down.

There are just a handful of competitors that even consider using blue tag certified seed and that’s what separated OrganicLawns from the competition. We simply offer our customers the best possible seed and pair it with the best employees on the planet. Just like cookies and milk!

At Organic Lawns, we take aeration seriously and use top of the line Ryan walk behind lawn aerators when we perform this service on a property.

Aeration Explained:

Core aeration actually removes cores of soil from your lawn, which alleviates compacted soil to provide oxygen for the roots. Core aeration also helps your lawn develop its own rich topsoil. The cores that are removed from your soil will naturally break down in a matter of two to three weeks, giving your lawn an added surplus of topsoil. In turn, this topsoil creates the perfect medium for your grass to grow – not only in the holes, but also on the surface of your lawn. In addition, core aeration allows your grass to gather a greater nutrient uptake. The result is better and deeper root growth and a lawn that is full, green, and lush. We are confident we provide the finest quality of core aeration service. Plus, we offer an extremely competitive rate for up to 1/3 of an acre for our regular customers throughout Maryland.
