About Our Services

Core Aeration Services

Having healthy grass starts at the soil, and Elite Lawn Care offers core aeration service for Crystal Lake, Algonquin, Lake In The Hills, Huntley, & Cary, Illinois. 

Aeration relieves the soil and root zone of compaction.   The lawn aerator will pull plugs out of the ground will create air pockets that will allow water, fertilizer and seeds to more easily to reach the roots of your turf.  This will leave you with soil that is less compact, less dense and better for the root system to spread and develop.  

By performing a core aerating on your yard, you will see a greener and thicker lawn. Our recommended lawn care routine includes dethatching, core aeration and then a general overseed of the lawn. If you are looking for a core aeration company for your soil aeration services, be sure to call us today.

Benefits of A Core Aeration Service



Core aerating your lawn at least once a season you will help to keep an improved amount of air flowing to your lawns root system.



After a core aeration service, the spaces left in your lawn will allow better absorption of water, nutrients and fertilizers into the soil.



Performing a soil aeration service, will improve the drainage of the lawn and help to prevent any puddling of excess water.



By aerating the yard you are allowing more space for your grass roots to spread out further and deeper into the soil, improving its durability.



Compact soil can suffocate your lawn. Core aeration services will relieve compaction from your lawn, allowing your lawn to thrive.



To keep your lawn healthy and strong, lawn aeration service is recommended twice a year to keep air, water and nutrients in the soil.

The very best of Elite is the people - everyone in the office is so kind, efficient and knowledgeable. The men in the crew sent to us (twice) were polite, friendly, really, really good at what they do, and don't waste time.

Thank YOU, Elite, for being such a classy business!

Great lawn service! Conscientious, friendly workers. The yard looked beautiful this year, they did the grass cutting they pulled weeds and they laid mulch, and also did the shrubbery trimming. Couldn’t be happier!

Stronger Roots

Stronger root systems lead to greener and thicker lawns that are more resistant to foot traffic from kids and pets.

Want to reduce your watering bill?

Aerate Your Yard

When it rains on compacted soils most of the water runs off the top of the ground rather than soaking into the soil where your grass can take advantage of it.  Help reduce water consumption by giving it a direct path to the roots of your lawn.
