Liquid and core aeration services are similar in the way that they both have the purpose of improving the health of your lawn. But when it comes down to deciding between the two, liquid aeration is the better choice because it is less invasive to your lawn. Instead of pulling cores of soil out of the ground, liquid aeration is performed by spraying the lawn with a solution and letting the active ingredient break down the soil. Liquid aeration is also better because it can be scheduled at any time during the growing season in Texas. Lastly, liquid aeration won't leave plugs or "cores" of soil all over your lawn. Using this service not only keeps your lawn healthy, but it will maintain its visual appeal as well.

1. Liquid aeration is less invasive than core aeration.

Keeping the stress on your grass as minimal as possible is crucial for the health of your lawn. Core aeration is an invasive service that involves pulling plugs of soil from the ground, which can stress out your lawn. Liquid aeration provides the same benefits as core aeration does, just without bringing unnecessary stress to your lawn. This service is performed by applying a liquid solution evenly across your lawn, which is a non-invasive process. The active ingredient in the solution breaks down the soil, which ultimately loosens up the soil and makes it easier for nutrients and other resources to reach the roots of your grass.

2. You can perform the liquid aeration process at any time during the growing season.

Soil compaction is extremely common. Simple activities like mowing the lawn or increased foot traffic during the spring and summer can press down on your soil and cause soil compaction. Because the liquid aeration process is not invasive, and won't cause much stress to your lawn, you can schedule this service at any time during the growing season. If you were to go with core aeration, you would have to wait till the conditions are just right. If you were to schedule core aeration at a time when your lawn is already stressed, your lawn could end up getting damaged. When you choose to go with liquid aeration, you can schedule this service at a time that's convenient for you. Being able to use this service during different times of the year becomes valuable for getting the right results at the right time for your lawn.

It is best to schedule liquid aeration twice per year for the best results.

3. Liquid aeration won't leave your lawn littered with cores of soil.

Even though core aeration is an effective service, it involves leaving cores of soil scattered around your lawn. This can take away from how beautiful your lawn truly looks and can drag down the curb appeal of your property. Liquid aeration leaves your lawn with no unnecessary plugs because all of the work is done beneath the surface. This service will leave your lawn with tiny pores throughout the sprayed area, but they will be much smaller and not very noticeable. When you schedule a liquid aeration service, you will be able to reap all of the benefits of aeration without having to deal with cores of soil all over your lawn.
