Core Aeration

Getting to the Root of Your Lawn’s Health

Lawn aerationWhen you consider the checklist of a healthy lawn, arguably the most indicator of vitality and a luscious, carpet-like appearance is below the surface: your grass’s roots. One way you can care for the roots is through core aeration.

Core aeration is the mechanical process of removing soil and thatch plugs, allowing beneficial air, water, and nutrients to reach the root zone. Aeration should be a regular part of any annual lawn maintenance program to keep soil compaction and thatch in check and increase root development and water retention, giving your lawn the breathing room it needs to thrive.

Why Core Aeration

Aeration is vital to turf health, density, and vigor. Core aeration has many beneficial effects on the soil and turfgrass plants. These effects include:

  • Improved water and air movement into soil
  • Improved root density
  • Relief of soil compaction to aide in overseeding
  • Thatch control
  • And more
