Aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow air, water and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps the roots grow deeply and produce a stronger, more vigorous lawn. The main reason for aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume or space, which prevents proper circulation of air, water and nutrients within the soil. Aeration will improve drainage and help your lawn become more drought resistant.
The best time for aeration is during the growing season, when the grass can heal and fill in any open areas after soil plugs are removed. Ideally Everlush Lawn Care aerate the lawn in the spring and autumn.
