When it comes to relieving compressed soil and allowing for stronger root growth, lawn aeration is a powerful solution. In this technique, thousands of tiny holes are taken out of your lawn, creating pockets that encourage root growth, and also serve as growing pockets for new seed. These holes allow moisture to pass to the root system, allowing your lawn to obtain more nutrients to thrive.
Lawn aeration is a preferable alternative to dethatching a lawn, a process that consists of using a machine that rakes out the dead grass blades from your lawn. This is dangerous for your lawn because the dethatching process often damages the crown of the plant, leading to more dead grass. Aeration not only dethatches your lawn safely, but it also provides the dead grass that isn’t removed a place to decompose, delivering nutrients to the turf’s root system.
When combined with the right fertilization program, aerating leads to a more-dense turf, and more grass growing chokes out weeds and other unwanted grass varieties.
