Lawn Aeration

For years, legacy mechanical lawn aeration was the best game in town. As helpful as it was, ultimately, it was woefully inadequate. The most significant impact of mechanical lawn aeration is compression relief – Only about 20% of the lawn is covered with mechanical aeration and only at a depth of 2.5 inches; this is certainly better than nothing but does little to address the real compaction culprit- Chemical binding. Chemical binding results from high ph levels, excessive salts, and bicarbonates often found in our local soils. Excessive salts prevent the plant from absorbing water from the surrounding soil, causing dehydration, even if there is abundant water nearby. Over time, salts bind the soil colloids together, making the ground hard and unpenetrable. 

Our professional liquid aeration products assist in sequestering the excess sodium and/or bicarbonates, pulling them away from the root system. Soil colloids are quickly backfilled with nutrients and microbial activity, promoting aggressive root growth and reducing plant stress. Lastly, micro tunnels are forged with highly oxidizing materials on 100% of the turf area (not 20%), allowing much-needed oxygen and hydration to a 6” depth!  

Don’t wait; maximize your investment into your lawn with GreenGate Turf and start experiencing the very BEST lawn you’ve ever had!

Lawn aeration Houston is simply the best thing you can do for the heavy clay soils found in our local lawns.  The best lawn aeration in The Woodlands allows more oxygen to the roots, significantly increases water movement in the soil, and provides compression relief for the soil colloids allowing turf roots to spread and thrive. Lawn aeration is even more beneficial for maximizing your water usage and reducing runoff and evaporation when water restrictions are in place.  Golf courses typically perform 5 per year, and we recommend one in the spring and one in the fall for residential lawns. 

Plug Lawn Aeration

However, there are drawbacks to the best lawn aeration in Katy when using a machine to “pull plugs.”  As wonderful as this can be for the soil, it is only effective to about 2.5 inches deep and leaves the “plugs” on top of the turf.  Mechanical aeration will only cover about 20% of the lawn and leaves a mess. Additionally, sprinkler heads, phone lines, high-speed internet lines, outdoor lighting, etc., are all at the mercy of the machine and operator.  

Liquid Lawn Aeration

The best lawn aeration in Sugar Land is liquid aeration by GreenGate Turf. Liquid Lawn Aeration Cypress is a state-of-the-art application that creates tiny pathways deep into the soil with bio-stimulants and oxidizing materials at key growth stages to deliver oxygen, moisture, and nutrients to the roots. Without these “tunnels,”  the root system has no way of accessing what it needs most to thrive. With the best lawn aeration in Memorial City, we can cover every square inch of your turf. Our liquid aeration will also help break up soil compression caused by restrictive chemical bonds at the soil colloid level that stunts valuable nutrient uptake into the plant.

Unique to our liquid aeration is that each application builds on top of the other and picks up where the last application left off. Liquid lawn aeration Tomball helps amplify our quality fertilizers and is excellent insurance for the turf during late-season heat stress. We have the best lawn aeration in Missouri City.

Super Aeration

GreenGate’s Super Aeration is our state-of-the-art liquid aerating process, plus a POWERFUL de-thatcher added to the mix.

Often, you will see a noticeable greening of your turf a few days after our application. (Summer Months) Our advanced product focuses on composting thatch faster by encouraging microbial activity at the soil surface & increasing heat. This exothermic release by increased soil activity will break down and quickly reduce thatch from the soil level up. The organic matter is recycled as a food source and helps to remove spawning locations for lawn damaging insects and fungus.
