Proper Aeration Is Crucial
Like every other living thing on this planet, your lawn needs to be able to breathe for it to be healthy, strong, and beautifully green. It takes more than just dumping chemicals on your lawn for it to thrive. We know exactly what to do to aerate your lawn and allow proper oxygen exchange to take place. When the soil beneath your lawn is hard and impermeable, air, water and nutrients cannot penetrate, get to the roots and nourish them. As a result, patches of your lawn will become malnourished and die. If this is what's happening to your lawn, call us immediately. We can help.
High Tech Tools And Techniques
Opening up the soil beneath your lawn and nurturing it with the proper doses of nutrients, air, and water is a delicate process. It requires the right high-tech tools and techniques. Our technicians have the training, knowledge, experience, and expertise to handle this crucial process. The soil beneath your lawn is like your skin. If the pores are clogged, nutrients can't go in, and waste products cannot be released. A healthy 25 square foot lawn can produce all the oxygen one person needs for an entire day. A healthy, properly aerated, 50' by 50' lawn can provide enough oxygen that a family of four needs each day.
An Oxygen Making Machine
When your lawn is properly fed and aerated, it becomes an incredible green oxygen making machine. Your lawn can now absorb sunshine, air, water, and transform them into the energy it needs to produce fresh oxygen and blades of green grass. If you want your lawn to be the wonderful oxygen machine it was meant to be, give us a call. Lawn Love can make sure your lawn is aerated, helping it flourish and produce the fresh air you need.
Why Your Lawn Needs Aeration
Each year, as the grass in your lawn is born, grows, and dies, the roots become entangled with organic matter and dead grass and form a thick, matted layer that is called thatch. This thatch prevents the roots of the new grass from penetrating deep down into the soil. Thatch prevents soil drainage as well. Plus, if there's lots of foot traffic on your lawn, it can become compact. This can further weaken the grass. Over time, the grass in your lawn will become unhealthy and unattractive. Once the grass in your lawn is weakened and unhealthy, your lawn becomes more vulnerable to insect infestations and weeds like dandelions and thistles.
How Aeration Helps Your Lawn
When a provider comes to your property, they use aerators to break up the thatch. This makes the soil loose enough to allow the water to drain properly and the grass roots to spread out deep into the soil and draw in enough nutrients to keep your lawn healthy. Providers typically use two common types of lawn aerators. They are core aerators and spike aerators. The core aerators scoop up and separate pieces of the thatch in your lawn as they move along. This creates big enough gaps in the soil for air and water to pass through. Some lawn care professionals also use spike aerators. These spikes are inserted into the soil at specific intervals to create breathing and feeding holes.
Aerate Your Lawn Regularly
How frequently you need to aerate your lawn is determined by a number of factors. Including your local climate, grass type, and how much foot traffic it has to endure from people, pets, and children. If you want a green, healthy lawn, you should have it aerated at least once a year. Lawns that are heavily trafficked by lots of pets, playing children and teens and outdoor gatherings like barbecues and parties, should be aerated twice a year for optimal results. Ideally, it should be done in early spring (March/April) and early fall (September/October). This loosens the soil as the grass transitions from dormant to growing in spring and reverses the process in fall.
