5 Key Benefits of Aeration

Howdy Folks! I don't know about you guys, but aerating a lawn was smething I had never heard of where I came from. When you love to have a great looking lawn though, aeration is one of the best things to do.

What is aeration?

Aeration is the process of removing plugs from the soil to relieve compaction. This can be done with a machine or manually. Due to soil and traffic on the lawn, it can choke out grass that you have by stopping roots from getting deeper which leads to growth and added health for the plant. By reducing the compaction, you allow those roots to grow deeper.

5 Key Benefits of Aeration:

-Improved roots and increased shoot density

-Increases thatch breakdown

-Improved effectiveness of lawn fertilization

-Increases water drainage to solve puddling

-Better absorption of air, water, and nutrients

When should I get it done?

The best time is in the fall for cool season grasses. This prepares the roots for winter time and provides a better outcome for the next season.The next best time is in the Spring. For more clay like lawns and highly trafficked on lawns, twice a year at both Spring and Fall would provide the best results. When preparing to have this service done, remember to call 411 to ensure you don't have any lines that could be damaged.
