Expert Aeration Service

Aeration In Charlotte, NC

Here in the Charlotte area and all over North Carolina, we experience some of the nicest weather anywhere in the country. Unfortunately, this often means that lawn maintenance can be a much more difficult task than in other areas. With the warmer weather comes more foot traffic on your lawn, excessive drought conditions, and compacted soil in your yard, all of which can cause your lawn to develop bare spots, standing water, and even pest infestation. If these problems sound like the issues facing your lawn, RDS Lawn Care Services is here to help!

Client Testimonials

What Your Neighbors Are Saying

RDS has done a great job on our lawn. In just one year we have seen a vast improvement. Knowing that it takes time and a few years of treatment to see the best results, we are very happy with the results so far. Also the pest treatment allows us to be in the yard without the worry of mosquitos and other pests. Highly recommend.

- Brad Huffstetler

RDS is best in class. I have been using the RDS team for over a decade to treat, aerate and seed my lawn. It takes time, but Aaron's formula for weed control and fertilization has my grass in tip top shape. I would highly recommend RDS to anyone wanting to have the nicest lawn in their neighborhood.

- Jason Barger

These guys are awesome. Our lawn (and many in our community) look great...like a well manicured golf course. We have had a great experience with them and they have almost repaired the damage that was caused by one of their competitors. They are responsive to concerns and take ownership of their products and procedures. They are a local company and know the soil very well.

Core Aeration

There is nothing better than having some friends and family over for a barbeque or party in your yard and enjoying the perfect Carolina weather. However, the constant traffic, coupled with high heat and drought effects, can make your soil become too dense and compact for the necessary nutrients to be absorbed by your lawn. Our core aeration service is the best way to combat this problem. 

Core aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil and thatch from your lawn in order to help it breathe and absorb nutrients better. Removing these plugs leaves behind tiny holes in your lawn, and these holes allow your soil to get more oxygen and nutrients and allow water to drain and be absorbed more fully. Signs that your lawn is in need of core aeration include standing water on top of your grass and bare spots on your lawn, both of which create conditions that can attract pests to your yard. While our pest control service is top-notch, we would rather take care of the problem before it starts with our core aeration service.

If your yard has cool-season grass, such as tall fescue or perennial ryegrass, we will perform a core aeration from September to October. If your yard has warm-season grass, such as Bermudagrass or St. Augistinegrass, we will core aerate from May to July. To ensure the best results possible, we will always go over your lawn a second time after the first pass is complete to make sure we did not miss any areas. After we leave, your lawn will be left with the removed plugs atop the grass. While you can rake them up and dispose of them, many customers choose to leave the plugs on the lawn, as they will reintroduce themselves to the soil and help provide additional nutrients. If you are ready for healthier, thicker grass in your yard, core aeration may be right for you!


Have you ever seen the vibrant greens and fairways of Harry L. Jones Sr. Golf Course? That kind of lawn care perfection is most easily achieved by Overseeding during core aeration. After the core aeration process removes the aforementioned plugs, the effects of spreading seed over your lawn are optimized. After aeration, the seeds will have thousands of holes to fall into and will have better access to water and nutrients. Overseeding is best paired and highly recommended to use with our core aeration service. 

Also, you can rest assured that you are getting the finest seeds in the Carolinas when you choose RDS Lawn Care Services. We use a seed trial performed by NC State that tests over 200 varieties of seeds each year. They are checked for drought tolerance, disease resistance, and their hue/shade. You will not find seeds better suited to our climate anywhere.

Liquid Aeration

Liquid aeration is another option for customers who elect to use our aeration services. This type of aeration is only recommended for lawns that are at least 75% healthy. Liquid Aeration utilizes a liquid mixture that is sprayed over your lawn, and the mixture will slowly begin to loosen the soil and allow water and nutrients to be absorbed better. This method covers more ground than core aeration. However, core aeration is still the better option for compacted soil. If your lawn is already looking pretty good and you just want to take it to the next level, liquid aeration is the way to go!
