Is Lawn Aeration Really Worth the Investment?

When you weigh the cost-to-return value of an annual lawn aeration service, it’s one of the best lawn care investments you can make.

An average residential property will cost around $60-$85 for a complete aeration service. For that small investment, you get:


Save Space in Your April-June Budget

We recommend lawn aeration take place in April, May, or at the latest, June, to:

  • Relieve soil compaction.
  • Build new pathways for water penetration.
  • Allow more nutrients and air access to the root zone.
  • Reduce thatch, which reduces habitat for common lawn pests.
  • Promote the growth of thicker grass.

The equipment required to properly aerate your lawn is large, heavy and expensive. You can eliminate a heavy and awkward chore for yourself by hiring your local Gardener. We’ll bring the aerator, perform the service and be out of your way in little more than an hour.

When your lawn grows back full, healthy and vibrant next spring, you’ll wonder why you waited so many years to give lawn aeration a chance.

  • Outstanding
    This is for Kevin The Gardener Ottawa West. Kevin and his team at The Gardener are the most Professional Service contractors I’ve ever had. They do both our snow removal, and our yard work. I have even received a text message on one or two of the rare days when due to weather they would not be at my house on Thursday they will be on Friday. Who does that! I will continue using the The Gardener as long as I need their services.
