AERATION

Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted, leaving the subsoil undesirable for healthy lawn growth. Aeration is the single most important step in maintaining a healthy lawn. What is it and why do we do it? Aeration creates holes down into the soil to alleviate compaction, so that air water and nutrients can reach grass roots. A lawn that has been aerated yearly will hold more nutrients and water than a non aerated lawn. If you water your lawn, you’ll find that you need to use less water since the soil is airy and can hold more moisture. This is especially important for states that suffer droughts or have water restrictions in place. Roots will establish quicker and have better structure with proper aeration. Fertilizer will also work more effectively by penetrating deep into the roots. If you have pets, children or a high trafficked yard, aeration is necessary to keep a soft lawn. The best times to aerate are Spring and Fall. While aeration is extremely important, and additional service to add in is overseeding.  Overseeding is necessary as it improves turf density.  Having seeders on our aerators allows us to perform two jobs at once.
