Lawns are important to people for a number of reasons. Some value green lush lawns to show off their property, which they are proud of. Others want soft full grass for their kids to play on. Regardless of what your reason is for wanting a greener, fuller lawn, we are here to help. One option we offer for you to achieve your dream lawn is core aeration. What is core aeration? Let’s talk about it.
What Is Core Aeration?
Core aeration is the process of pulling small nickel-sized cores of grass and soil from your lawn. We know what you are thinking. How can putting holes in a yard help the grass grow?
Many lawns suffer from one or two things. First, impacted soil is a condition where surface soil is compacted. This makes it difficult for grass to grow deep roots and therefore causes the quality of grass to suffer. Second, thatch is the tightly woven layer of plant material between your grass and the soil beneath it. This layer can prevent nutrients, air, and water from reaching the roots of your grass, affecting its overall thickness and color.
The holes created from aeration are designed to help break down thatch and spread out impacted soil to give your grass access to the nutrients, air, and water it needs to flourish. This greatly improves the thickness and color of a lawn, making it the talk of the neighborhood. The best part about core aeration is that it only needs to be done once a year to keep a lawn looking lush and vibrantly green.
How To Know If Core Aeration Is Right For You
One simple test is performed to know if our core aeration service is the right choice for your lawn. You need a shovel for this. Find a section of lawn you are comfortable digging in and remove a square foot section of soil and grass at least 6 inches deep. Take a look at the roots growing through the soil. If they only extend an inch or so deep, chances are your soil is impacted. As discussed earlier this problem can be solved with core aeration.
