Need for Professional Lawn Aeration

As already mentioned, aeration is a complex process, and most people don’t even understand its working and its need for their lawn. It must be done at the right time, the right way, and using the right type of aerator. This is where our professional aeration services come into the picture.

What is Lawn Aeration?

There are 2 common types of aeration – Spike and Core aeration. Both involve the creation of small holes in the lawn to enter the lower roots of the grass.

  • Core Aeration: This involves pulling out cylinder plugs, causing decompaction of the underlying soil.
  • Spike Aeration: It follows a similar process, but without the removal of soil or grass. It uses spikes for the small holes, thus getting its unique
  • name.

The process helps improve the roots’ exposure to various essential elements. It breaks up compacted soil to allow the nutrients to penetrate and reach the root area. Compacted soil is a common problem and can cause various problems including unhealthy roots. Some of the common causes of lawn compaction include:

  • Hard clay soil
  • Poor maintenance
  • Heavy foot traffic
