Lawn aeration involves taking small plugs from the soil to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate. This gives roots a place to populate and produces a stronger, more vigorous lawn. Overseeding and topdressing are best done in conjunction with aeration.
Why should you aerate your lawn?
Soil compaction negatively affects both trees and turf. Aeration allows for better water retention (lowers water requirement), more vigorous root growth (more tolerance for adverse conditions), and maximizes the effectiveness of fertilizations and treatments.
How do you know your lawn needs aeration?
Compaction happens over time, especially in soils with a clay component. Heavy foot traffic, lawn equipment, and irrigation all contribute. Pooling water is the easiest way to spot compaction.
When should you aerate your lawn?
There is not a wrong time to aerate. Most of Arborlogical’s customers are on a spring and fall routine aeration.
How often should you aerate your lawn?
It’s recommended that you aerate your lawn at least twice a year. The cold and dry Winters in our area are especially stressful for grass.
