Lawn Aeration Near Me
Foot traffic, improper maintenance, heavy rains, and other environmental factors can naturally cause soil compaction and thatch buildup, making it difficult for grass to grow. This results in patchy, uneven, and yellow grass. Luckily, the damage is reversible with our core aeration!
By pulling up small plugs of soil, we create channels that water and nutrients can flow through to the grassroots. Over time, these plugs will break down and return the nutrients removed with the plugs back into the soil.
Why We Offer Core Aeration
Aside from getting rid of soil compaction, core aeration can help with lawn care aspects such as:
- Reduced water runoff and pooling.
- Thicker, more even grass growth.
- Better resistance to drought and disease.
- Stronger, more expansive root systems.
- Overall healthier grass.

Leave Aeration to the Professionals
While aerating your lawn may seem straightforward, there’s actually a lot that can go wrong. An improperly aerated lawn can actually make soil compaction worse, damage delicate grassroots, or stress out your grass. At Showcase Lawn Care, we have the proper tools, experience, and knowledge to do the job correctly, so let us help your landscape thrive!
When Is the Best Time to Aerate?
For the best results, aeration should be done during the growing season of the grass, either in the spring or in the fall. This will ensure that the grass has time to repair itself and get the most out of the process.
While aerating your lawn in the spring provides quicker green-up, aerating in the fall promotes stronger roots, helping the turf thrive the following year.
Overseeding in the Twin Cities
Your grass doesn’t live forever—lack of nutrients, physical damage, disease, and even old age can all cause it to die. Most residential grasses don’t seed on their own—even though there are a lot of benefits to overseeding your lawn, like replacing lost volume. That’s where our overseeding services come in! We pair aeration and overseeding for the best results for lawns in Minneapolis, giving the grass seed the perfect conditions it needs to grow quickly.
