Lawn Aeration Services in Cincinnati, Dayton, Ohio & Northern Kentucky
Your lawn is so much more than what you see above the surface! One common reason that lawns deteriorate and struggle to be thick and green, is due to compacted soil. A strong and developed root system is essential to help your lawn take hold of what it needs to thrive.
Grass roots grow and seek out not only moisture, but nutrients and even oxygen. If your lawn’s soil is compacted, roots cannot grow deeply into the soil for these essentials. What ends up happening, is a lawn with compacted soil turns brown, thin, and just plain ugly. Compacted soil is also a favorite place for a lot of weeds to grow as well.
The best way to remedy compacted soil is with lawn aeration services. A piece of small machinery (called a core aerator) travels across your lawn, pulling small cores of soil (½” in diameter and 2-3” long) and depositing them on the surface. After a couple weeks, these soil cores naturally break down.
Core aerating your lawn annually will help your lawn in the following ways:
- Increases root growth to seek out more moisture and nutrient resources
- Allows for better drainage, so grass roots don’t rot in waterlogged soil
- Establishes an oxygen-rich environment where soil microbiology can better thrive
- Improves tolerance from wear, drought, disease, and other stresses
- Aids in thatch breakdown
- Gives ideal conditions for lawn overseeding
