Almost every lawn can benefit from aeration. For some, the need is more obvious. As we go from summer to fall, it's the perfect time to consider aerating and its benefits. If this is a new term for you, let us explain.
Aeration or core aeration is basically perforating the soil as well as the thatch covering soil. Little plugs are taken out of the soil and deposited on top of turf. The result is holes in your soil which allow for air, water, and nutrients to get down into the roots. Essentially it's breaking up soil to let grass roots naturally grow deeper and thicker. As we've said many times, a deep healthy root system is your best defense against weeds, insects, and disease.
