Lawn Aeration Services and Lawn Aeration Pricing

Lawn aeration benefits infographic diagram. Wheaton and Glen Ellyn lawn aeration.Best Way Landscaping offers Lawn Aeration Services.

Lawn aeration is the process of removing cores of grass and soil from the lawn to create room for the lawn to grow more dense. The removed cores give room air, water, sun, fertilizer and seed can better reach the soil to nurture your lawn. It also decompresses the soil allowing the grass roots to expand and make the turf more traffic resistant. Common services that can be completed at the same time as aeration include fertilization and overseeding.

Cost of Lawn Aeration Services

The cost of lawn aeration is largely based on the amount of labor it takes to complete the work properly. At Best Way Landscaping we use a 2 person crew. One person runs the aeration machine while the other crew member removes debris and spreads the spent cores as needed. We have found that this is the most effective and affordable crew for lawn aeration.

This means our crew rates for lawn dethatching are $110 per hour. To give you an idea of how much you can expect to pay for your lawn aeration, we have built up three pricing examples below. Please keep in mind that these are only examples, for an exact price on your lawn aeration, give us a call.

Cost of Lawn Seeding or Overseeding

Lawn seeding or overseeding are often coupled with aeration, since the seeds can easily reach the soil by entering the core voids and embedding into the cores themselves as they breakdown. This embeds the seeds as much as possible to get the best sprout rate. Seeding costs are based on the additional labor and the amount of premium seed you needed for proper coverage.
