Regular lawn aeration improves soil health while limiting thatch buildup, resulting in grass that can thrive.
Grass is a fairly hardy plant that plays a major role in the overall appearance of an outdoor space. It does need to be watered regularly and trimmed from time to time, and applying fertilizer at the right times of the year can help it to thrive.
Another maintenance task that can greatly benefit the health and appearance of your lawn is aeration. During the lawn aeration process, a machine punches holes in the surface of the grass to reduce compaction. This allows air to permeate the soil, and it creates a path for fertilizer and water to reach the roots.
Over time, regular traffic on your grass can lead to soil compaction beneath the surface. When the soil becomes compacted, the grass is more likely to thatch, or decompose, which impacts its health and ability to continue to grow. Regular lawn aeration improves soil health while limiting thatch buildup, resulting in grass that can thrive.
