Core Aeration |
Relieves soil compaction
Lawn aeration is the physical removal of soil from the surface of a lawn. The aeration process that we perform selectively removes cores of soil without disturbing the existing grass. A proper lawn aeration will encourage root growth, begin to compost the thatch layer, open up soil for seeding and reduce compaction and water run off. American Mulching and Seeding recommends that core aeration is done in a two direction method, horizontally and vertically. By this particular method we get a more consistence removal of compacted turf.
This allows air, water, and nutrients to get down to the plant roots and stimulate growth, new root production and improve drainage. Then the plugs of old grass will decay and be absorbed as nutrients.
