Core Aeration in Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, & Surrounding Cities in Oregon

Improve the flow of oxygen, moisture, and sunlight to the roots of your grass by scheduling our core aeration service.

Regularly aerating your lawn is a key factor in keeping it healthy, and core aeration is a widely-accepted way to do this. Core aeration opens up holes in the soil so nutrients, water, air, and sunlight can reach the roots of your grass more easily. The plugs that were removed from the soil during the aeration process will remain on top of your lawn but will decompose and return their nutrients back into the soil. We recommend scheduling our overseeding service directly after we have aerated your lawn because the grass seeds will be able to fall into the holes, which will increase their chances of germinating successfully. We offer our core aeration service in Happy Valley, Troutdale, Gresham, and surrounding areas in Oregon. Give us a call at (971) 284-2035 to schedule our core aeration service for your property.


Our core aeration process restores the flow of nutrients to the roots of your grass.

Over time, the soil in your lawn can get compacted, which restricts the flow of nutrients, oxygen, and moisture down to the roots of your grass. We offer our core aeration service to combat soil compaction. Our core aeration process involves using a machine to remove small cores of soil from your lawn, which will create tiny holes that nutrients and other resources such as air, water, and sunlight can use to reach the roots of your grass.

We perform our core aeration process during the months of September and October.


We leave the cores of soil on your lawn to decompose.

Once we are finished with our core aeration process, there will be many small plugs, or cores, left on the top of your lawn. This is not an oversight! We leave those cores on your lawn on purpose because as they decompose, they will deposit nutrients back into the soil. You can hasten their decomposition by raking them, but it is not necessary to remove them from your lawn.

At J&C Lawn Care, we recommend that you schedule our overseeding service directly after we have aerated your lawn to help your grass grow lush and thick and to help fill in any bare areas throughout your turf. The main reason that we recommend overseeding your lawn directly after aeration is because the grass seeds can fall into the holes that were created during the aeration process, giving them excellent seed-to-soil contact and increasing their chances of successfully germinating. We overseed lawns in the fall so that your new seedlings will have time to establish themselves before winter.

We recommend that you schedule our core aeration service and our overseeding service annually to keep your lawn looking its best.
