Aeration opens the soil to allow air, water, and fertilizer to reach the root zone of the turf. It also reduces thatch and “softens” the soil. You can think of aeration as the “secret” ingredient that helps make every other lawn care service done on your lawn deliver the best possible results.
Aeration removes thousands of “plugs” of soil and deposits them above the thatch. These plugs “melt” back into the lawn and mix with the thatch. This speeds up the process of thatch decomposition, and helps keep it under control. A heavy thatch layer can contribute to serious insect, lawn disease or drought damage, requiring renovation. With regular aeration, thatch can usually be kept under control and seldom becomes a serious lawn threat. Many soils (especially heavy clays) become hard or compacted over time. The small and tightly packed soil particles have little space between them for water, air and roots. Lawn aeration lets the soil expand, and the space between soil particles is increased. Lawn roots, water and air can all penetrate deeper in looser, more open soil. With regular aeration, the soil becomes “softer” and your lawn is healthier and thicker as a result.
