Liquid Aeration vs Core Aeration – Which Option Is Right for You? | Turf Badger

No One Does Pest Control Like Turf Badger!
If you notice your lawn is looking a little patchy and brown, that could mean that it’s not getting the nutrients and resources it needs to stay healthy. One way you can help your lawn strengthen up is with an aeration service. Aeration loosens up compacted soil to create passageways for nutrients and other resources to find their way to the roots of your grass. There are two types of aeration services you can schedule: liquid or core aeration. Liquid aeration is the less invasive of the two as a solution is just sprayed onto your lawn to loosen up your soil. Core aeration, on the other hand, is a process that uses a machine to pluck cores out of your yard to achieve the same results—a process that should only be done in the fall in Wisconsin because cool-season grass will be strong enough during the fall to endure the process. Both options are great, so it doesn’t matter which one you choose. It all comes down to personal preference and when you’re looking to schedule this service.

What is liquid aeration?

One way you can aerate your lawn is by way of liquid aeration. Liquid aeration is the process of opening up channels and passageways for nutrients and resources to reach the roots of your grass. How it works is a liquid solution is sprayed onto your turf and eventually sinks into the ground. As the product is absorbed into your lawn, it will break down the dense matter to loosen up your soil.

What is core aeration?

Core aeration provides the same results as liquid aeration, but the process is very different. Instead of spraying a liquid solution on your lawn, a machine called an aerator travels across your property to loosen up your soil. The aerator plucks tiny cores from your yard, leaving behind plenty of holes. These holes function as passageways for nutrients and resources to find their way to the roots of your grass.

Leave the cores on your lawn after the aeration process. The cores will break down and recycle nutrients back into your soil.

Is liquid or core aeration better for your lawn?

When it comes down to which service to schedule, you honestly can’t go wrong with either of them. It’s all a matter of personal preference and when you plan to schedule this service. For example, core aeration should only be scheduled in the fall in Wisconsin because cool-season grass is strongest in the fall and will be able to endure the process.
Some people prefer liquid aeration because it’s a less invasive alternative when compared to core aeration. In Wisconsin, you can schedule a liquid aeration service in either spring or fall since it doesn’t stress your grass out. However, if you want to aerate your lawn in the spring, you should go with liquid aeration to ensure you don’t cause any harm to your grass.

Pair overseeding with core aeration in the fall to help create a denser lawn by promoting new grass growth.
