The hole truth about aerating your lawn
Aerating your lawn is a great way to reduce thatch, loosen up compacted soils, and make it easier for water and nutrients to reach the roots of your turf. In short: regular aeration of your lawn improves your soil and improves your lawn!
Even with the best care available, lawns can thin out and lose color due to excessive thatch build-up, hard or compacted soils, or periods of high temperature, high humidity, or drought (sounds a lot like what we experience here every year). Aerifying is recognized by turf experts such as golf course superintendents as the best treatment to control thatch, reduce compaction, help fill-in bare spots and revitalize growth.
An aeration treatment removes small cores of soil and thatch to allow air, moisture and fertilizer to penetrate down to the root zone. The cores brought to the surface contain microorganisms, which help the breakdown of the woody thatch tissue. This allows the roots of existing grass plants to spread out and grow deeper, creating a healthier, thicker lawn.
