Aeration and Over-seeding
Health and beauty are root deep. Over time, the soil beneath your lawn gets compacted, which impedes root growth.
The Problem: Compaction
Compact soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps air, water, and fertilizer from reaching the roots. Common causes
For a beautiful, healthy lawn you need to get air, water and nutriends down through thatch and soil and into the root zone. Aeration makes this possible.
The Solution: Aeration
Aerators punch holes or slice through the turf and thatch and into the soil to reduce compactoin. This allows air, nutriends, and water to reach the roots more efficiently.
When and how often should you aerate? Most lawns benefit from annual aeration. Heavily used lawns, or those actively growing on heavy clay or
subsoil may need aerating more frequently.
Aerate during seasons when grass is under less stress but actively growing to allow turf to fill in the open spaces where the soil plugs were removed.
The fall is a perfect time to aerate.
