Our Lawn-Tek Lawn Aeration experts strongly recommend aeration for all lawns once each year.
Lawn Aeration reduces soil compaction. Soil compaction basically means that the soil is smashed tightly together, making it difficult for water, air, nutrients, and your grass’ roots to get down into the dirt.
Soil Compaction is quite common in the eastern Iowa region. Compaction can be caused by a number of things – excessive traffic, hard rainfalls, rainfalls that cause flooding and/or standing water.
Benefits of Lawn Aeration
- Reduced soil compaction
- Improved water penetration
- Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere
- Improved fertilizer uptake and use
- Reduced water runoff
- Improved rooting
- Improved resiliency and cushioning
- Enhanced thatch breakdown
Everyone has seen the bare spots on the playground under a child’s swing. That’s an extreme case of lawn compaction, caused by lots of little feet pounding on it. It’s so smashed together that nothing will grow there, not even weeds. Another example would be an area by a fence where a dog constantly runs back and forth.
Lawn Aeration loosens the soil by taking 1 ½-1″ diameter by 4-6″ long plugs out of the ground. Once your lawn has been aerated, it is also a great time to OVERSEED (to aid in thickening up your lawn), or APPLY A GOLF COURSE GRADE FERTILIZER.

Great Company and People
Great company and people! LawnTek tore out and replaced a retaining wall, complete with drainage and backfill, on our property and it looks amazing. They did it all by hand without use of heavy equipment that tears up the yard. Probably the hardest working crew I’ve ever seen. Ran into one of the guys a month after the job was completed, and he not only approached to shake my hand, but remembered my name. These guys will be highly recommended for anyone looking for lawn and landscape work.
Puts Customer Service
Lawn-tek puts customers first!! They go the extra mile to ensure that our lawn needs are taking care of. If we ever have a question or concern, they are very prompt and very eager to make sure we are completely satisfied. They have the best customer service that we have ever received from a company. If you are looking for great, friendly customer service, great quality of work, and very reasonable rates. Please contact Lawn-Tek and you wont be disappointed.
Great Job, Great Service, Would Recommend
I had asked the Lawn Tek people if there was still time to schedule an aeration on my half acre property. They were closing down for the year (already November) but they were able to get me in within a day of my request. The next day, the Rep in charge called me when they finished the previous job so I could meet them at my home to discuss the property boundaries. The Rep was very nice, asked a couple of questions, we spent about 5 minutes walking the property and he went straight to work. Great job, great service, would recommend them to anyone to work on their lawn.
Very Easy To Work With
Very easy to work with. The technician that sprays my yard is very professional and you can tell that customer service is very important to him. After he was done with an application we stood and talked for about 15 minutes. He was not in such a hurry to get to the next job. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Love This Lawn Business
Love this lawn business. Great company, great workers, dependable, every time we call Lawn Tech they schedule us right away and always have done an excellent job. They go the extra mile, finish up promptly always leaving an healthier, more beautiful lawn everytime with excellence you can trust.
The Best Lawn Care Service
Lawn-Tek is the best lawn care service i have ever experienced. Period!! From Customer service to application to going one step above and beyond to address any concerns or problems, they have exceeded all of my expectations. They show me through their service and their professional technicians that they take a personal interest in my yard. I recommend them with no reservations whatsoever.
Hasn’t Looked This Good In Years
I got tired of doing all of the weed and feed and other lawn health maintenance and outsourced it to Lawn-Tek. The lawn has not looked this good in years. I would surely recommend the service based on my experiences.
My wife and i just want to let everybody know that the lawn service (even though we have only had the spring seeding) that they are an excellent service. We strongly recommend if anybody is looking for landscaping to be done, Toby is absolutely the BEST! His workmanship, his precise calculations and his work ethic are above and beyond. Please consider Toby (Lawn Tek) for any landscaping you need to be done. He only works weekends due to his internship and college work.
Always Friendly and Helpful
Always friendly and helpful. I use Lawn-tek for lawn and tree treatments. Do a great job informing me when they’ll be coming by, or if weather will delay service. I’ve found them to be one of the more affordable and reasonably priced places available. Easy to pay online and manage my services. Would definitely recommend.
