Aeration is a lawn care process that allows water, air, and nutrients to better reach the root systems of plants and grasses by puncturing the soil with small holes. Aerating allows the roots to grow strongly and deeply in order to produce a healthy lawn.
Holes three inches in depth and nickel size in diameter are poked into the ground. Cores of soil are pulled out and deposited on top of the lawn.
What are the Benefits of Lawn Aeration?
Aeration breaks up thatch and compact soil, which benefits your lawn in the following:
- Improves fertilizer and water intake
- Allows air down to the root system
- Loosens up the soil
- Strengthens the root system so the lawn can get green and healthy
- Helps de-thatch the lawn
