The Best Time To Aerate Your Lawn

Before you know it, our HOT Arizona summer will be here.  For Gilbert and Chandler residents, grass can provide an island of cool in our scorching heat.  Most residents have some form of Bermuda grass that starts growing again in May. In May, when high afternoon temperatures kill off the winter rye grass, Bermuda grass will reappear.

The best time to aerate your lawn is late spring or early summer.  We do not recommend aerating your grass during our hot summer months.  If you don’t have a chance to aerate your lawn now, make sure to schedule an appointment for fall aeration.  You want to try and aerate about four weeks prior to our overnight temperatures reaching near freezing.

Most, if not all, of our residential lawn care customers love the dark green look of their grass during the winter.  Due to the cooler temps, our lawns can be more appealing than during the summer.  The best time to overseed your lawn is in early October when the temperature is around 65 degrees or lower.  By overseeding, you will have a fuller lawn that is much more protected against bugs, disease and heavy foot traffic.  In the long run, a thicker lawn will reduce the amount of pesticides and fertilizers you need for a healthy grass lawn.  Saving you money!
