Aeration reduces soil compaction and increases uptake of water & nutrients to help increase root strength, leading to a lush & healthy lawn.
A healthy yard is a happy place for your family and friends to gather and enjoy the seasons. But over the course of time your lawn can become compacted from regular use such as playing sports, walking or mower traffic. This prevents air and moisture from making its way to the grass’ roots and it can also block the nutrients in fertilizer from getting below the surface to help condition the soil for your grass to grow to its fullest potential.
One of the often overlooked ways to promote your lawn’s health is by performing a core aeration service. This annual practice of mechanically removing cores from your lawn can promote water, nutrient and oxygen absorption, which promotes deeper root development and increases overall turf density.
This is a question we are commonly asked by our clients and we go into detail about the subject in this blog post. But aeration can technically be done at any time during the growing season except during periods of hot weather and drought. At Greener Grass, we perform our core lawn aeration services from late-August through October. The timing is ideal because the weather has generally cooled off from the hottest summer days, but still leaves ample time for the lawn to recover before winter arrives.
With practices like our annual core aeration procedures, we can create a stronger, healthier root structure and in turn, a stronger lawn. Our core aeration procedures promote water, nutrient and oxygen absorption through the root zone, allowing your lawn to flourish.
