Often times we utilize our lawns as playgrounds for kids and pets. This repeated use can compact the ground, and make it difficult for the grass to properly utilize the nutrients being applied to it. Having your lawn aerated by Pestology will allow your lawn to take in oxygen and nutrients essential to a healthy life. Aeration is an important yearly maintenance practice that is often forgotten. But if forgotten for too long, lack of aeration can cause sever thatch build up, and severally harm the lawn’s ability to recover and maintain a beautiful appearance.
Benefits of aeration include:
- Removal of soil cores increases penetration of water, air, and nutrients into the soil
- Loosening the soil encourages a strong healthy root system
- Soil fungi and bacteria are released when the soil disintegrates. These organisms help to degrade thatch build up.
- Nutrient application follows aerating which allows the nutrients to flow directing into the cores, and then directly to the roots of the grass
