Now is the perfect time to aerate your turf! Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate built-up grass or lawn thatch.
The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Excess lawn thatch or heavy organic debris buried under the grass surface can also starve the roots from these essential elements.
Aeration can make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements. Benefits of aeration include:
- Reduced water wastage
- Helps lawn breathe
- Clears thatch build-up
- Improved overall lawn health
- Stronger turfgrass roots
- Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance
