Lawn Aeration

Lawn aeration is essential to improve the overall health and appearance of your lawn. In the same way that a farmer’s field is plowed every year, your lawn needs to be aerated, usually in the spring and fall. Aeration is needed due to thatch buildup and soil compaction. These two issues can be caused by a number of things including heavy use of your yard and waterlogged soil. When soil compacts, your lawns roots struggle to get oxygen or find much-needed nutrients, causing shallow roots and reduced thickness and growth.
