Lawn aeration is the process of removing small cores of soil from your lawn reduces compaction and promote root growth for healthier grass!
What is aeration?
Technically speaking aeration is the naturally occurring process of air exchanged between the soil and its surrounding atmosphere. Practically speaking, creation is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of batch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration.
As well as relieving compaction, aeration also allows air, rain and nutrients to penetrate a hard surface, improves bacterial activity and helps reduce thatch. It also improves drainage from the surface, increases the water holding capacity and therefore stimulates rooting and root depth giving a more drought tolerant lawn. If your lawn suffers from premature drying, poor drainage or moss invasion aeration will help.
Why is Lawn Aeration Essential and Beneficial?
Core aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements through these means:
– Improved air exchanged between the soil and atmosphere.
– Enhance soil water uptake.
– Improved fertilizer uptake and use.
– Reduced water runoff and puddling.
– Stronger turfgrass roots.
– Reduced soil compaction.
– Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
– Improved resiliency and cushioning.
– Enhanced thatch breakdown.
When done correctly, aeration can be one of the most beneficial processes for a lawn. This is completed towards the end of the year using a professional heavy machine that pushes tine bars into the soil allowing air and nutrients into the soil profile.
