Lawn aerations are recommended twice a year, once in spring and again in fall. We handle many lawn aeration services in Castle Rock every year. That’s because aeration is an effective way to turn the topsoil to allow more oxygen and runoff water into the lawn root zone. An April lawn aeration is a perfect time. Some lawn aeration benefits include:
- Fertilizer efficiency increase
- Water soaks into the root zone decreasing water bills
- Compacted soil is loosened giving your turf space to multiply
Lawn aerating helps the natural photosynthesis of your grass by getting more fibrous nutrients to the roots of the grass. Through proper lawn aeration, you’ll increase the flow of minerals and nutrients to your lawn’s root system while simultaneously allowing easier water flow to help promote healthy growth all year long.
If you are lawn aerating, make sure blades are sharp, sprinkler heads are accounted for, and the soil is not frozen.
It is better to wait to aerate if the soil is frozen. You also do not want the soil to be muddy or loose if it is raining. Plug depth is important but it’s more critical to make sure that the coring is pulling out the plugs, not pushing down and compacting the soil.

Lawn Weed and Feeds
We typically recommend three to five lawn weed and feed treatments per season. The feed is a proprietary lawn fertilizer specially formulated for the clay soil you find in Castle Rock. Soil with a high amount of clay content leaches or drains water and nutrients more quickly.
In fact, the single biggest factor in fertilizer efficacy is making sure the right product is applied to the clay soils we have in our neighborhood. The root system of your lawn is what we are nurturing because without a strong root system the above-ground blades are not able to fully mature during the season. We use a proprietary fertilizer blend to combat this phenomenon.
