Getting to the Root of Your Lawn’s Health
Aeration is intended to help relieve compaction in the soil, allowing turf to root deeper and aiding in soil drainage. Core aeration—the mechanical process of removing soil and thatch plugs—is the most popular method of alleviating compacted soil, but this method does have its limits. That’s why we also offer liquid aeration.
Why Liquid Aeration
There are multiple reasons to choose liquid aeration over core aeration, including:
- Can be sprayed right up to the very edge of sidewalks, driveways, and smaller areas
- Can cover an entire lawn (compared to mechanical aeration only pulls cores in about 5-15% of the lawn)
- There is no need to mark sprinkler heads, invisible fences or cable lines
- No messy cores left over in the yard like mechanical aeration
The Science Behind Liquid Aeration
Liquid aeration creates fractures within the soil, allowing deeper penetration of water and deeper roots and therefore deeper roots. Liquid aerations are applied like a standard spray application by one of our technicians. The product we have chosen to use is derived from an organic humic acid that breaks down the bonds between metals and other micronutrients that have become “tied” up in the soil molecules. Once these bonds are broken, these micronutrients become available to the plant and can be absorbed by the roots, further aiding in the health of the plant. When these nutrients become absorbed, they leave behind room in the soil that allows water, oxygen, and roots to grow farther down.
