If you aren’t already aware, the start of fall is prime time to get your lawn aerated. After a long summer of stress and foot-traffic, the soil is in need of some major decompaction. Now the question is, should you go the DIY route or bring in a professional? Although some of you may prefer the DIY route, you should know that it’s not necessarily the easier or cheaper way. Here are 3 reasons why you need to go through a professional!
Saves Time & Energy
A lawn aeration is not a quick process, especially if your yard has more square footage. The larger the yard, the more work it will be. Not all of us have a lot of time to dedicate to this, and when you finally have that weekend off, who wants to actually spend it aerating their lawn? I know I wouldn’t. If you don’t have the time to commit to doing this, a professional company can do the aeration for you saving you both time and energy which you can dedicate to the more important things in life!
A lot of people choose to go the DIY route because they think it’s cheaper. But that won’t be necessarily be the case. I don’t know about you, but most of us don’t have a lawn aerator just lying around. This means that you will most likely have to rent one or invest in some tools that can be used for aerating (You can read about those here). Not matter what you choose, however, expect to be investing some money. Plus, if you plan to seed your lawn after you aerate, you will also have to buy the seed. If you bring in a lawn care company, you could get your lawn aerated and seeded for a price that would be close to or cheaper than doing-it-yourself. Many companies will have specials for the aeration and overseeding during this time of year. You can read about ours here!
Not only will you save time, energy, and possibly some money when you hire a lawn care company, but you will also get professional results! When you do-it-yourself, it’s harder to make sure that you cover every area of your yard when you are aerating and seeding. With a professional doing the job, your entire lawn will be aerated and seeded properly, ensuring that your grass will grow in healthy and green.
