Aerating

Aeration involves plugging the ground which allows water, oxygen and nutrients to get deep into the roots of the lawn. This makes for a healthier looking lawn with a strong root system.

Compacted soil and heavy thatch are the two biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. This means your lawn looks less than satisfactory in spite of adequate fertilization, water and tender loving care! Aeration opens up the thatch and helps relieve compaction. It should be a regular part of your annual lawn maintenance program. The plunging action of the spoons into the ground opens up the soil – allowing the grass plants to breathe and promoting deeper, healthier roots.

Major benefits of aeration

  • Reduces soil compaction
  • Increases air, water and nutrients in the roots
  • Enhances decomposition of thatch
  • Stimulates new growth
  • Increases the effectiveness of applied fertilizers
  • Provides a better outcome for overseeding
  • Makes a lawn less susceptible to damage from insects, weeds and disease
  • Reduces water run and surface evaporation
