Lawn AerationIf your lawn has bare patches or brown grass, and it seems like no matter what you do, you just can’t improve the appearance of your lawn, you may be looking for solutions. Lawn aeration is an excellent option when you would like to improve the look and feel of your lawn and promote healthy growth from season to season. So, what exactly is lawn aeration and what does it do?

Lawn aeration is the process of placing small holes throughout your yard that break up the soil, reduce thatch that may be preventing your grass from receiving nutrients and water, and encourages root systems to develop. While you may be wondering if putting holes in your yard is the right decision, here are a few additional benefits you will see:

  • Better fertilizer uptake and usage
  • Enhanced water uptake in the soil
  • Improved exchange of air between atmosphere and soil
  • Reduced water runoff
  • Stronger root systems
