Aerating your lawn helps your grass breathe and helps to prevent thatch build-up and fungal diseases. A compacted lawn prevents water absorption and entices weeds to take hold. Compaction can be caused by high traffic or water pooling for extended periods after rain. To test for compaction push a 6 inch probe or screwdriver into the suspected area. You should be able to easily push it all the way down.
Aerating a lawn perforates the soil with small holes and allows air, water and nutrients to get directly to the grass roots.
There are a few different methods to aerate lawns. Contact Hydro Lawn Solutions regarding our aeration service.
