Lawn core aeration is an important step for your grass health. Furthermore often described as one of the most important step for a healthy, thick and robust lawn. Lawn core aeration is the process of removing small cores of soil from the lawn using a machine. The aeration machine is designed to remove small cores from the soil, approximately 3 inch in depth and 3/4 inch in diameter.
If you do not own an aeration machine, you can rent one from your local hardware store OR hire a company to perform the process for you.
The lawn core aeration process leaves plugs of soil and thatch on the surface of the lawn witch will decompose and incorporate back into it, depending on the time of year and weather conditions, the tiny holes will fill in within a few weeks.
Lawn Core Aeration provides a number of benefits to your lawn:
• Reduces soil compaction.
• Will lead to growth of deep healthy roots.
• Removes the excessive thatch layers.
• Minimize weed infestations.
• Reduces insect and disease.
• Increases the assimilation of fertilizers and other control products.
• Stimulates turf growth and health.
The ideal time to have your lawn core aerated is during Spring and Fall, when the lawn is actively growing.
Aerating your lawn core once each 2 – 3 years will be sufficient for good healthy turf. Heavily compacted soils may require additional more frequent aeration.
The lawns with excessive layers of thatch buildup will require Lawn Dethatching.
