Aerating is a process of punching 3 inch holes in your lawn with a tool that removes small plugs of soil to allow a better flow of air, water and nutrients to the roots of the grass. This stimulates root growth and prevents thatch build-up.
Core aeration creates healthy roots and thicker, more beautiful lawns.
Lawns should be aerated at least once a year, especially if your soil is heavily compacted or consists of clay. Over-seeding after aeration is important, as the holes left are perfect places for grass seed to germinate, thickening up the lawn. The aeration holes also hold moisture for better seed germination. This is the most important step you can take yearly to help keep your lawn healthy and looking beautiful.
It improves the appearance of your lawn by relieving compaction, breaking up thatch, providing free topsoil, drought protection, new turf growth, fertilizer absorption, and overall, property value. This application is best done in early fall and if necessary can be done in the early spring. Contact us for a free quote to aerate your lawn.
