It's time for your
lawn to breathe ...
Lawn aeration constitutes two things: controlling
lawn thatch and reducing soil compaction. Lawn
thatch is a layer of dead organic tissue that can
protect the lawn by moderating temperature and
reducing evaporation, but too much thatch can limit
soil oxygenation and reduce watering effectiveness.
Soil compaction makes it difficult for grass to
develop long roots and disturbs both natural
rainwater and artificial irrigation.
It is purported that scientific evidence exists that
aeration makes a measurable difference in the
long-term health or quality of a lawn.
The benefits of lawn aeration:
Exposes the roots of the
grass directly to water and nutrients, allowing
for more efficient intake.
Breaks up tight, compacted
soil, helping to increase the root growth and
causes the lawn to become stronger and more
resistant to high heat in the summer.
A strong root system provides
superior resistance to weeds and diseases by
preventing them from gaining a foothold in your
lawn. The cores themselves will breakdown
naturally and act as a top-dressing, returning
essential nutrients to the soil.
