What is Lawn Aeration?
Lawn aeration is a process which mechanically opens the turf. Lawn aeration machines penetrate the soil removing thousands of cores. This process provides the needed space for roots to grow and allows fertilizer, water, oxygen, and other important nutrients to soak deep into the soil. Spring lawn aeration, as well as fall lawn aeration, is the best-known practice to keep your lawn green, healthy, and problem-free.
Why is Fall Lawn Aeration Important?
Lawn aeration every fall is extremely important! During the spring and fall seasons, the roots grow within themselves and become very compacted. Fall lawn aeration opens the turf allowing winter fertilizer to reach the root zone where roots primarily feed. In addition, winter snowpack now has the ability to melt and drain into the soil, rather than sitting on top of the lawn and suffocating it. (Also known as "winter kill")​​
Why is Spring Lawn Aeration Important?
The soil in Aurora CO, Castle Rock CO, Centennial CO, Highlands Ranch CO, Lone Tree CO, Parker CO, and surrounding areas consist of clay, sand, or a combination of both. Clay and sand are approximately 2-3 inches beneath the surface of the lawn. Roots cannot grow through clay or sand and will cause the lawn to thin out and perish.  ​

Throughout the cold and dry winter months, your lawn is in its dormant stage. Roots have been deprived of water and nutrients. Spring lawn aeration will allow water, fertilizer, oxygen, and all other important nutrients to soak into the soil and stimulate new root growth. Most importantly, roots will have the needed room to grow for the lawn to flourish. 

Why Choose Gary's Lawn Solutions to Perform Your Lawn Aeration Service?
Our extensive "Double" lawn aeration packages include overlapping your lawn a minimum of 2-3 times. Extra fertilizer, extra water, and all other important nutrients will soak in and feed your lawn properly.

We don't charge any additional fees to complete the job right!
What is a Sprinkler Blowout
The term "Sprinkler Blowout" is the process of blowing the water out of a sprinkler system. In most cases, a commercial compressor is attached to the backflow preventer and water is pushed out of the sprinkler lines using compressed air. A sprinkler blowout extracts most of the water from the sprinkler lines.​​
What is Sprinkler Winterization versus a Sprinkler Blowout?
"Sprinkler Winterization" is the process of adjusting and preparing vulnerable components of a sprinkler system to prevent the system from breaking throughout the winter. Freeze damage is the number one reason for all sprinkler repairs and is typically caused by water and air expanding within the system.

A "Sprinkler Blowout" is part of the winterization process that helps protect the sprinkler system from breaking. Many homeowners have been misinformed or misled to believe that blowing the water out of their sprinkler system will guarantee that their sprinklers are fully protected throughout the winter. 

The majority of sprinkler repairs are split copper pipes, broken backflows, broken manifolds, and broken valves. Most sprinkler lines flow downhill for excess water to escape. We believe that all preventative measures should be provided to avoid all unnecessary repairs.
