Lawn or core aeration allows air to reach the sub-surface and the grass roots embedded in the soil. Aeration machines remove small "cores" from your lawn which helps loosen the soil and turf areas. Grass requires soil as base which can easily become compacted and thinner due to general lawn traffic (walking, riding bikes and/or children playing).
By restricting air circulation, the roots are unable to absorb the ideal amounts of oxygen. As with all plants, oxygen is vital to their growth, vitality, health and appearance. This inability for roots to develop can potentially mean the soil will produce poor conditions for your lawn and grass.
Again, we highly recommend lawn aeration to enhance your turf and its root system thus providing you with the best looking lawn possible. Here are some additional benefits:
- Roots will absorb more nutrients, oxygen and water
- Improved turf strength and disease prevention
- Improves water savings and reduce watering costs – up to 40%
- Removes thatch
- Promotes a greener, healthier and thicker lawn
