Why should I aerate my lawn?

Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted, leaving the under soil undesirable for healthy lawn growth.  Walking, playing, mowing, and watering compact particles and reduce the air space necessary for root growth.  Compaction is greatest in the upper 1" to 1.5" of the soil and needs to be relieved by mechanical aeration.  The mechanical process takes 2-3" deep, finger sized holes into the soil to improve the air, water, and nutrient uptake within the root zone.

 

Benefits of Aeration...

  • Stimulates root growth
  • Reduces Water Runoff
  • Reduces Compaction
  • Improves Oxygen Content
  • Enhances Thatch Control
  • Improves Nutrient Availability
