Aerate Your Lawn And Let Your Grass Breathe


Compacted soil and thatch are two big obstacles to a beautiful lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate fertilization, water, and tender loving care! Aeration opens up the thatch and helps relieve compaction. It should be a regular part of your annual lawn maintenance program.

How it works

Doing the Aeration Service Aeration is accomplished through the use of a machine equipped with cylinder-like tines designed to penetrate and shatter the soil. Cores of thatch, soil and grass are actually pulled out of the ground during the process. The plunging action of the tines opens up the soil, allows grass plants to breathe, permits better utilization of fertilizer, air, and water and promotes a deeper, healthier root system.

 

Major Benefits of Aeration

  • Increases air, water, and nutrient movement to the root zone.
  • Intensifies decomposition of thatch.
  • Helps prevent soil compaction.
  • Stimulates new growth.
  • Loosens heavy clay soil.

  • Creates thicker, more vigorous looking turf.
  • Slows erosion of slopes and hillsides.
  • Improves drainage.
