Aeration is the pro’s secret to a perfect lawn (over 15,000 American golf courses can’t be wrong) and you can now have this yard care advantage too. Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate built-up grass or lawn thatch. Aeration is a beneficial practice toward achieving a beautiful lawn.
What is Aeration?
Aeration perforates the soil with small holes allowing air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots and improving your lawn’s ability to hold water, getting more absorption with less runoff. You can water less and you will not see erosion in hard rainfall. By aerating, you will reduce drought damage. Coring reduces soil compaction for healthier turf and stronger root systems. It also reduces the buildup of thatch which can starve your lawn of moisture, nutrients and oxygen. Coring also gives water, air and nutrients direct access to your lawn’s root systems. The result will be a greener, healthier lawn in no time.
When to Aerate Your Lawn
The best time to aerate your lawn is in the Spring and Fall.
