Health and Beauty are root deep. Overtime, the soil beneath your lawn gets compacted, which impedes root growth.
Compact soil prevents grass from establishing a healthy root system and keeps air, water and fertilizer from reaching the roots. Common causes of compaction include:
- Foot Traffic
- Lawn maintenance
- Clay Soil
For a beautiful, healthy lawn you need to get air, water and nutrients down through thatch and soil and into the root zone. Aeration makes this possible.
Aerators punch holes or slice through the turf and thatch and into the soil to reduce compaction and allow healthy circulation of air, water, and nutrients.
When and how often should I aerate?
Most lawns benefit from annual aeration. Heavily used lawns or those 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.
