Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate built-up grass also known as thatch. Core aeration is done on turf areas as a means of reducing turf compaction, reducing thatch buildup, improving the infiltration of water/nutrients, encouraging deeper roots, and creating an environment where grass seed can have direct contact with the soil.
The process of core aeration may be used in combination with overseeding to fill in bare or thin spots in your lawn. The cores removed from your lawn are left on the surface where the cores break down in 1-2 weeks, the break down of the cores also add nutrients back into the soil
This simple step can turn a ordinary lawn into a healthy and thick lawn. Bob's Lawn & Yard Service has the right equipment to improve the vigor of your lawn.
