Birmingham aeration services
Aeration in Birmingham, AL
Birmingham, Alabama is the only place on the planet where limestone, coal and iron ore (the three raw ingredients needed to make steel) can be found in their natural form within a ten-mile radius. A statue of Vulcan, the Romans' famed God of the Forge, guards the city. Nowhere else in the world is there a preserved furnace complex like the National Historic Landmark, Birmingham's Sloss Furnaces, which pumped out pig-iron for about 90 years. And Electra, The Divinity of Light, also watches over the city from on top of the Alabama Power Building. Birmingham is blessed and is often referred to as the 'Magic City'.
A History Of Having Firsts and Largest
Birmingham, Alabama hosted America's first Veteran's Day Celebration, and it continues to be the largest to this day. America's oldest baseball stadium, Rickwood Field, where Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean, Ty Cobb, and Willie Mays all played, is in Birmingham. So is the largest motorcycle museum, Barber Motorsports Park. Birmingham's 1,200 acre Red Mountain Park, which is 40% larger than Central Park in New York City, is among the country's largest urban parks. So Birmingham residents know the importance of vibrant, healthy, greenspace. It's no surprise they're among the first to embrace our lawn aeration services.
The Importance Of Lawn Aeration
One of the most important keys to having a green, healthy, attractive, lawn is having it aerated regularly. Aeration breaks up tightly compacted soil and helps water, air and a wide range of nutrients to seep into the soil. This also makes it easier for the roots of the grass to spread out and wend their way down through the dirt. This helps to make the grass strong and give it easy access to the nutrients in the soil. When the roots take hold, new grass can grow, and the lawn will thrive. Without proper, regular aeration, the lawns throughout Birmingham will eventually dry up and die.
Four Common Types Of Grass
Lawns in Birmingham, Alabama typically have one of four types of grass. They are Bahia Grass, Tall Fescue, Zoysia Grass, and Bermuda Grass. Choosing the right type of grass to use in a lawn in Birmingham is important. It can make a dramatic difference in how it stands up to the vagaries of the weather, the amount of foot traffic it can handle and still look good, and the type of care it will require. The beautiful, durable, green lawns you see all over Birmingham are usually one of these four types. We have the equipment, experience, and expertise to provide the proper aeration services all four species of grass needs.
Important Features Of Each Type Of Grass
Bermuda Grass is a common choice because it thrives in both cold and warm temperatures, is drought-resistant, can take lots of sun and tolerates heavy foot traffic from people and pets well. People in Birmingham favor Zoysia Grass because it requires very little maintenance, can handle hot and cold temperatures, and stands up well to foot traffic. Tall Fescue has deep roots, requires very little maintenance, and stays green all year long. Bahia Grass is great for warm weather, can handle cold snaps, is extremely drought tolerant and is resistant to insects, fungus and other diseases.
All Lawns Need Regular Aeration
No matter what type of grass you have on your property in Birmingham, it is important to have it aerated regularly if you want it to thrive and look its best. You need to aerate your lawn a minimum of once every two years. For best results, it is recommended to have aeration done at least once each year. If you have lots of kids and pets playing on your lawn and you regularly have large numbers of family and friends over for barbecues and other outdoor activities, you should aerate your lawn early in springtime and again in the fall. This will ensure your lawn looks green and healthy year-round.

We use several very effective methods to aerate lawns throughout Birmingham. Some of the common tools and equipment we use are cores, spikes, and shoes with spiked soles. This enables us to thoroughly loosen even the most compacted, impenetrable, soil, loosen up tangled roots and allow water, air, and nutrient-rich fertilizer to make your grass strong and healthy. One of the biggest issues that causes lawns to begin to get brown patches, weak, sparse grass growth, and problems with weeds is when you have too much thatch in the soil. Thatch is a tangled mass of dead roots that make it near impossible for water, fertilizer, and air to seep in and nourish the grass.
