Lawn Aerator Rentals – Raleigh, NC

Need to aerate? If your soil is hard and compacted, or you have heavy Wake County, NC clay, your yard will need aeration prior to seeding your fescue lawn or planting warm-season grass plugs.  At Atlantic Avenue Orchid & Garden we can assist with your compacted soil with our plugging aerator rental service. We offer half day, full day and overnight rentals at reasonable rates.

Aeration perforates the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This ensures roots grow deeply and aids in producing a stronger, more vigorous lawn.  The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have excessive solid particles in a small space, preventing proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch can also starve the roots from these essential elements and prevent proper drainage.  If your soil is hard and compacted, your lawn was established from sod, you have excessive thatch or if you have heavy Wake County, NC clay, your yard will need aeration prior to seeding your fescue lawn. Your grass will get the nutrients it needs and will reward you with a better lawn!
