Lawn Aerationby Gregory Walker on 02/21/12
Many people don't understand the benefits of lawn aeration. We simply think of it as that annoying salesman that comes around each spring and makes a mess of the yard. However lawn aeration may be the best benefit for your lawn out of everything you do. This simple step each Spring can help with all of the following problems.
|Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.|
|Enhanced soil water uptake.|
|Improved fertilizer uptake and use.|
|Reduced water runoff and puddling.|
|Stronger turfgrass roots.|
|Reduced soil compaction.|
|Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.|
|Controls pest problems associated with lawns.|
Whether we do your aeration or someone else please make sure that the aerator is properly cleaned with a disinfectant before each use. A common problem with aeration is the spreading of larva from different pests. This can cause that lawn you have worked so hard at to have a pest problem.
