Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch and soil compaction. This occurs by creating growth packets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn. The price is based on lawn size.
HOW IT WORKS?
Aeration removes thousands of small cores of soil 1″ to 3″ in length from your lawn. These cores “melt” back into the lawn after a few rainfalls, mixing with whatever thatch exists on your lawn. The holes created by aeration catch fertilizer and water. Turf roots naturally grow towards these growth pockets and thicken in the process. Aeration holes also relieve pressure from compacted soils, letting oxygen and water move more freely into the root zone.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?
Performed annually, aeration means better response from the water and fertilizer that are applied to the lawn. It means fewer problems with insects and fungus disease which means a greener, thicker lawn to enjoy all season.
