A core aeration is recommended for all turf areas. Throughout the year, the soil that contains your lawn’s roots system is constantly being walked on and watered. The combination of these two things leads to soil compaction. Compacted soil becomes less likely to allow water and nutrients penetrate and can be used by the turf grass.
It is common for us to hear about customers with persistent dry spots in their lawns. No matter how much water is placed on these areas, it seems to never green up. This is caused by the compacted soil under the grass surface. The impermeable layer is not allowing the water to get into the grass roots zone. To help solve this problem, we recommend an aeration. The lawn aeration physically removes plugs from your lawn and creates thousands of tiny holes in the compacted soil. These holes allow for water and nutrients to penetrate to soil surface on be used by your lawn’s roots.
Also at this time we recommend that the bare areas in your grass be over seeded and fertilized. The tiny holes are a perfect environment for new grass seedling to sprout and fill back the bare spots in your lawn.
