You may have wondered if you should be aerating your lawn? There are an unlimited number of reasons why you want to aerate your lawn. Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted, leaving the underlying soil undesirable for healthy lawn growth. Walking, playing, mowing, and watering compact particles and reduce the air space necessary for root growth.
Benefits of Lawn Aeration
- Stimulates root growth
- Reduces Water Runoff
- Reduces Compaction
- Improves Oxygen Content
- Enhances Thatch Control
- Improves Nutrient Availability
Compaction is greatest in the upper 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches of the soil and needs to be relieved by mechanical aeration. The mechanical process makes 2 inch to 3 inch deep, finger sized holes in the soil to improve the air, water, and nutrient uptake within the root zone. These holes allow the surrounding soil to be able to expand as well, loosening the entire soil layer and improving the health of the entire lawn.
