Lawn Aeration Restores the old worn out grasses with the latest varieties that are more drought, insect and disease resistant. Sometimes even great looking lawns need to be aerated and seeded from time to time.
What is Lawn Aeration?
Core aeration is a type of lawn aeration whereby a machine (a lawn aerator) with hollow tines mechanically removes plugs or “cores” of soil and thatch from a lawn. Core aeration reduces soil compaction, creating a channel through which oxygen, water, and nutrients can penetrate into the soil.
Why Lawn Aeration is Important
In order to thrive, turf lawns need to be porous enough to allow oxygen, water, and nutrients to penetrate down to the root zone. Lawns that are too compacted or which have too dense a thatch layer can prevent air, water, and nutrients from getting down to the roots. Lawn Aeration is any process that perforates it in a way that allows air and water to access your lawn’s roots.
