Aeration (or core aeration) is a lawn care treatment that will help improve the recycling flow of air, water and nutrients to your soil and grass plants.
The aeration process leaves small plugs of thatch and soil on the lawn. These plugs will decompose in a few weeks with normal mowing, watering and rainfall. The process of nutrient recycling within the soil will continue, because the plugs contain microorganisms that help control the buildup of thatch tissue, all resulting in better turf response.
This, in turn, will help to rejuvenate your grass by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating healthier grass plants, and keeping your lawn thicker and greener.
Remember: Aerating lawns can:
- Reduce soil compaction
- Stimulate root growth
- Increase air and water penetration
- Improve nutrient uptake via the root system
- Help stimulate microbial activity
