Why Aerate Your Lawn!
Core aeration is the method of loosening up compacted soil by removing "plugs" of soil, allowing water to penetrate deep within the soil and facilitating the exchange of air in the soil with fresh air from the atmosphere. Aerating your lawn is a great way to reduce thatch, loosen up compacted soils and make it easier for water, nutrients, and fertilizers to reach the roots of your turf. Even with the best care available, lawns can thin out and lose color due to thatch build-up, foot traffic, pet traffic, or periods of high temperature, high humidity, or drought creating hard or compacted soils.
Why Is Core Aeration Important?
Core aeration helps to break up thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water, nutrients, and fertilizer to get deep into the root zone of you lawn. These effects make core aeration one of the most beneficial services to enhance your lawn's appearance and health.
Aeration and over-seeding is recognized by turf experts as the best treatment to control thatch, helps reduce those compacted areas, fills in bare spots and revitalize growth.
