Professional Aeration in Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, AZ & Surrounding Areas

Our team offers core aeration in the spring to relieve soil compaction.

In Arizona we are lucky enough to enjoy nice weather for most of the year, which means you can enjoy your lawn almost any time you want. However, heavy foot and vehicle traffic can cause soil compaction and prevent your grass from accessing and maximizing nutrients. When this happens, your turf might appear patchy and weak.

We have the solution for you. Our core aeration service at Little John's Lawns will create tiny holes in your yard to open up the ground and encourage essential resources to reach the roots of your turf. We offer it in the spring because this is when warm-season lawns in our area are at their strongest. Core aeration should be on your lawn care checklist every year if you want consistent and reliable results. Our core aeration service is available to homes and businesses in Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, AZ, and nearby areas.


How do we perform our core aeration?

Aeration tiny holes created in lawn in Mesa, AZ.

We perform core aeration by using our core aeration machine to pull soil plugs from the ground, creating tiny holes in the soil that relieve soil compaction and allow vital nutrients, water, air, and sunlight to reach the roots of your grass easily. As the machine pulls cores of soil from the ground, it will leave them on your lawn to decompose. As the cores decompose, they will release nutrients back into your soil, providing your grass with more nutrients!

When we aerate your lawn, we do it carefully to prevent damaging the rhizomes of your turf.


Schedule our core aeration in the spring to gear up your warm-season grass for the warmer months.

The Arizona area has warm-season lawns that love the warmer summer months. When aerating your grass, the rule of thumb is to do it when your turf is at its peak growing point. You can schedule our core aeration service in the spring from March to May because this is when your warm-season turf is growing vigorously.

Loosening up the ground can inflict minimal stress on your grass, and that's why we only perform it when we know your grass can tolerate and bounce back from it. Don't worry because once we're done, your lawn can easily absorb the nutrients that will strengthen it and gear it up for the summer heat.
