Our aeration service is a very important service. Aeration is just a very important service in lawn care practice overall. It is the most practiced service, I guess, next to fertilizing your lawn. Aeration is very popular for the fact that it works.
What an aeration does is, it is a mechanical machine, generally, that is driven across your lawn that pulls plugs out of your lawn and leaves holes in your lawn. These plugs that are pulled out will be pieces of your soil. These pieces of soil will sit on your grass like a compost for your lawn, which will actually give more nutrients back to your grass, and you’ll start to notice that your soil will become more healthy with each aeration that you do.
What an aeration does for your lawn, though, it just allows your lawn to breathe water, air, and fertilizers to get to the root system. It helps your lawn become thick, manageable. It also helps with thatch buildup, that layer built up on the base of your lawn that doesn’t allow your lawn to breathe and to turn brown.
It helps to prevent browning, it helps to save water, because it’s holding more moisture, the water’s getting to the roots, and it’s making the grass thicker, holding more moisture in the soil, and it just helps your whole root system of your grass. It’s the ideal practice to do for your lawn a couple times a year for sure.
