There are significant problems that can happen to your lawn when its basic needs aren’t met. Lawn’s need air, water, nutrients, sunlight and room to grow. If some or all of these things aren’t readily available in the right amounts your lawn will suffer. Luckily, this is where lawn aeration comes in.
By removing soil plugs from your turf you can improve several aspects of your lawn. A compacted soil restricts air flow, moisture penetration, and the root systems ability to grow and expand. The root system has more difficulty drawing in nutrients as well. Over time a lawn that isn’t aerated regularly will start to decline without these vital elements. In addition to letting in nutrients, fertilizer is much more effective when applied to an aerated lawn.
The good news? Lush Lawn offers lawn aeration services and a soil treatment program! We use state-of-the-art equipment. Our machines ensure that the job gets done with the highest level of quality. A regular aeration can prevent these problems from ever happening in the first place. Preventing problems is far easier than fixing them. We recommend having at least one lawn aeration each season in either the spring or the fall. If you can aerate twice per season that would bring even greater benefit.
Aerating can also reduce the occurrence of disease in your grass. If moisture, whether it be rainwater, irrigation, or dew has a difficult time working its way into the soil it can cause diseases. Properly aerating can reduce standing water areas and poor drainage.
As a side note: we do not dethatch or Power Rake lawns. Grass actually need a small layer of thatch to help store nutrients. The thatch breaking down also provides some microbial activity for your soil. Microbial activity is great for helping to move nutrients around in the ground. Plugging your turf with an aerator reduces the thatch, but doesn’t remove it entirely which is a much healthier process.
