Having your lawn aerated annually is essential for the overall health of your turf grass. Core aeration is the mechanical removal of small plugs of grass, thatch, and soil throughout your yard. The main benefit of aerating your lawn is increasing the amount of oxygen that reaches the roots of the grass which stimulates new growth and a healthier lawn.
Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn:
- Increased oxygen to roots
- Increase fertilizer uptake by turf grass
- Increased water uptake by grass
- Reduces thatch
Aeration of the roots system is the most significant benefit of having your lawn aerated annually, but some of the other benefits mentioned help improve your lawns health. For example after core aeration service has been done we recommend having the lawn fertilized, because those 1000's of holes throughout the yard will get the fertilizer in to the soil improving its effectiveness. Another great service to have done immediately following core aeration is to have your lawn overseeded. Those holes created by the aeration machine give new seeds a place where they are shaded from the sun and less likely to dry out so they germinate better and add to the density of the lawn. Watering your lawn becomes more effective because the water is absorbed into the soil more quickly and is less likely to run off saving you water.
