For a Healthy Lawn and Roots, Core Aeration is a Great Treatment for Your Lawn!

Benefits of Aeration

Want to know how core aeration can help your lawn? We can explain the process to you, as well as the many benefits you can expect to see. Aeration is beneficial because it:

  • Loosens compacted soil – Annual or semiannual aeration is recommended on lawns with heavy clay soils. Aeration will help loosen compacted or clay soils so that air, water, and nutrients can better penetrate into the soil’s root zone.
  • Controls thatch – Thatch is a layer of under-composed stems, roots, and other plant parts on the top of the soil. This layer inhibits water, air, and fertilizer from moving into the root zone. Thatch is usually found on older lawns, which usually have low soil pH. It is also commonly found where excessive clippings have been consistently left on the lawn. Regular aeration mixes the soil cores into the thatch, therefore helping the thatch to break down naturally. Aeration also speeds up the decomposition process.
  • Reduces water runoff – By controlling thatch, loosening soil, and making thousands of small holes in your turf, water will be able to penetrate into the root zone much more easily, resulting in more efficient use of your irrigation.

Benefits of Aeration

  • Improved air exchange between soil and atmosphere
  • Enhanced soil water uptake
  • Reduced water runoff and puddling
  • Stronger turf grass root system
  • Stronger turf grass root system
  • Reduced soil compaction
  • Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance
  • Improved resiliency and cushioning
  • Enhanced thatch breakdown

Spring and summer are a great time to aerate lawns. The removed plugs make room for roots and organic to soak into the soil. Thus, loosening compacted soil and allowing the soil to have more water and nutrient retention. This yields healthier turf that will better withstand heat and water stress.
