Lawn Aeration Services

An important service when it comes to lawn safety is aeration. To keep your lawn healthy, we will use a machine that pulls tiny cores three inches long from the ground. Aeration breaks up compaction of the soil and allows water and air to penetrate the soil more freely, giving your yard a healthier and deeper root system to fight off disease and summer heat stress.

It is also a way of decomposing thatch, reducing thatch buildup, which inhibits penetration of water, air and fertilizer.

De-thatching Your Wichita Lawn

Thatch is a layer of dead and living shoots, stems and roots that build up between the green vegetation and the surface of your soil. A thatch layer is created when dead grass accumulates faster than it decomposes.

A thin layer of thatch is beneficial. It helps to insulate the roots from heat and moisture evaporation. But if thatch builds up to a thickness of more than a half-inch, it restricts water penetration and minimizes the movement of air and fertilizers into the soil. This restriction weakens the turf, increasing susceptibility to insects, disease and weed invasion.


Planting grass can be expensive, time consuming, and unfruitful if done incorrectly. That’s why it’s best to partner with a local professional like Four Star Lawn Care of Wichita, Kansas.

Four Star Lawn Care will remove any dead grass from the area, slice the bare area and plant grass seeds. With proper watering techniques and our seeding guarantee, your lawn will be looking like new in no time. We recommend seeding in the fall, but we also realize time isn’t always on our side. Whether you need overseeding and aeration to increase the density and health of your Wichita lawn, or would like to start from the ground up with new sod, we can help!
