There is a reason golf courses perform aeration multiple times a year – it just may be the single best thing you can do for your lawn!
Aeration allows more water, oxygen, nutrients to get down to your grass’ roots while helping to reduce the thatch layer. When soil becomes compacted, even slightly, it inhibits the flow of these essentials that support thicker, healthier turf growth.
What makes a lawn compact? Construction equipment, kids and pets playing, and general use lead to soil compaction. For families who spend time on their lawn fairly often, we recommend aeration on an annual basis. For others, every other year would do the trick.
We can also pair aeration with over-seeding for even better results. Over seeding includes applying a thick coat of seed handpicked for our climate. Not only does it help thicken your turf, but it allows for a better diversity of turf grass to fight disease and drought.
