All About Aeration
August 20, 2020
Fall is fast approaching, so it’s time to once again talk about the importance of aeration. Aeration is the process of pulling out “plugs” or “cores” of soil from the lawn with an aerator. Learn all about aeration: why, how, and went to aerate.
Why, How, and When to Aerate
While fertilization and weed control applications will improve the healthy grass and remove the unwanted weeds, reducing compaction and introducing new seed to the turf is an essential step in achieving a thick and healthy green lawn.
How to Aerate
DIYing your lawn aeration can be difficult. If you are determined to do it yourself, there are aerating tools you can use that poke into the ground and create the aeration holes. Ideally, the holes should be about 2-3 inches deep and 2-3 inches apart.
When to Aerate
If your lawn was stepped on a lot, or rained on often, you might want to think about aerating. A heavily worn lawn can fall victim to soil compaction, which is when the soil gets so thick that the roots of grass cannot grow deeply. It can be hard to notice that your lawn is compacted as well. One sign is to see if rain puddles collect on your lawn, but this may not tell you the whole story. Green Lawn Fertilizing is happy to help you find out if your lawn is compacted, and what can be done to solve it.
