When it comes to aeration many people may thing “there is no difference between one company and another company” or, “I’ll go with the cheaper company”. These are both valid opinions. A few years ago I would probably agree with you!
I want to explain why we are different. I want to explain what the difference is. It is possible that you can maybe save $10 – $15 if you shop around. The question you should ask yourself is “Will I be getting the same service and result as SOA?” and more importantly, “can I trust the ‘cheaper’ company to do an effective job and not damage my property”. Below you will find some tips that will help you in knowing why we are amongst the elite when it comes to core aeration.
Why Should You Choose Seal of Approval for lawn aeration?
SUPERIOR MACHINES: We use cam driven aerators that produce as much as 25-40% more plugs per square foot than most of our competitors.×
SUPERIOR SERVICE: If you book us, we will come. Not only will we be there when we say, we will be accommodating to your schedule. Lawn aeration is a service that gets done 1-2 times/year. This is why we are looking to build lifelong relationships with our customers. In my opinion, there is NO reason to do a job that is not 100%×
SUPERIOR PRICING: Our unique routing system ensures maximum efficiency. We are able to pass these cost savings to our customers. Most lawns are priced between $55-$125 (front and back). Extremely small lawns may be slightly less and larger properties may be more.×
What is the difference? If I pay less I will be happy
In life we want to save money and if we could dictate price on what we pay for we would all be very happy. Although, if we went this route our economy would suffer. With aeration you can most definitely shop around and find a better deal. We have access to the internet which makes it even easier to search.
What most people do not consider is service, quality, and safety.
POSITVE RESULTS = MORE PLUGS + DEEPER PLUGS
What you need & what you don’t need
Aerating can take a toll on your body. When you have companies out there aerating all day, and all month it gets tough. Many of the bigger companies have crews that work for them. What you get are inexperienced students who are trying to make a quick buck before they go back to school. I have seen many cases where somebody has aerated a lawn and it is not fully complete. They do a few quick passes, the customer thinks it looks good and the deal is done.
SOA is a small company of only 3 individuals. We aerate every lawn as if it is our own lawn. No exceptions. You can be sure that pride is taken in everything we do. Customer retention is of the utmost importance to SOA!
What we deliver
A good job should have plugs removed every 2″- 3″, no less. A fast inexpensive job will have gaps between each pass of 8″ to as much as a foot or more. They will get the job done in half the time because they have only done half a job, and that is why you paid half the cost.
Aeration Equipment Affects the Outcome
The type of aeration equipment used can determine how effective the treatment will be. In general, turf responds best when core holes are close and deep. Equipment with hollow tines removes soil cores and equipment with open tines divots the soil surface.
Be sure not to have a company use solid tines. Solid tines will only poke holes in your lawn rather than pulling out the cores.
The best results for your lawn are when hollow tines are used. Our tines are always kept in prestine condition so they are effective when we do our passes up and down your property.
