Compacted soil and heavy thatch are the two biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water, and nutrients from reaching the root zone. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate fertilization, water, and tender loving care! Aeration opens up the thatch and helps relieve compaction. It should be a regular part of your annual lawn maintenance program.
Aeration is accomplished by the use of a machine equipped with cylinder-like spoons designed to penetrate and shatter the soil. Half-inch diameter plugs of thatch and soil are actually pulled from the ground during the process. The plunging action of the spoons into the ground opens up the soil allowing the grass plants to breathe thus promoting deeper, healthier roots.
Major Benefits of Aeration:
Increases air, water, and nutrient movement to root zone
Intensifies decomposition of thatch
Helps relieve soil compaction
Stimulates new growth
Provides a better environment for overseeding
Increases effectiveness of applied fertilizers & control product
Incorporates organic matter into the soil
