Lawn aeration is important to lasting lawn health. If you want to maintain a lush, green lawn year after year, this is it!
Lawn Aeration – Aeration service provides the soil, grass, and root system with much needed care. Over time, grass and roots become compacted. Lawn core aeration is an important treatment for thatch accumulation and promotes overall lawn health by giving roots and soil access to air, water and fertilization.
How Does Lawn Aeration Work?
Lawn aeration extracts a core of grass, thatch and soil, slightly larger than an apple core. These cores are removed on a grid every few inches by a special machine. The cores are deposited on top of your lawn to allow the soil and nutrients to wash out of them.
The hole left behind allows water, air and fertilizer to move into the root, thatch and soil area to support healthy lawn growth. And, if you overseed your lawn, it creates a great home for that seed to germinate. This is a much different operation and much better for your lawn than classic dethatching.
Every lawn should be aerated at least once a year. This is typically done in spring or fall.
The Benefits of Lawn Aeration
Lawn core aeration service is an important process that keeps your yard healthy and free from thatch. Thatch is a mixture of decomposing grass, roots and debris that builds up between the soil and the grass. Although a small amount of thatch is healthy for your yard, a large amount can damage grass and lead to weeds, pests and diseases.
Here are a few benefits of aerating your lawn:
- Reduces thatch buildup which is harmful to your lawn
- Reduces compacted soil
- Helps oxygen, water and nutrients reach grass roots
- Encourages lasting, healthy growth
- Increases the effectiveness of fertilizer
- Restores patchy or thin lawns when combined with overseeding
