What Is Lawn Aeration?
Lawn aeration is a lawn care service and treatment that penetrates some holes into the lawn to allow air, nutrients and water to reach deep into the grass roots. By removing the thatch on the top of the grass through regular moss control and scarification, lawn aeration helps the grass roots grow deeper and stronger for a healthier lawn.
Why Do We Need to Aerate Lawns?
Over periods of time, foot fall on your lawn compacts the soil down; even mowing your lawn takes its toll on your grass. The compact soil reduces the amount of soil pore spaces (water and air) that the grass requires to maintain strong and healthy roots. It is in these pore spaces that air and water circulate and help provide the turf with the necessary nutrients and air and water it requires to respire and grow. Aerating the lawn produces pore spaces where they have been compacted allowing the lawn to grow. Landworks landscaping company can help you achieve a lush, green lawn.
Benefits of Seeding After Aeration
Planting additional grass seed into your existing lawn is called overseeding. Post aeration overseeding is a great way to enhance your lawn. The newly sewn seeds can take advantage of the aeration process to more rapidly fill in bare spots and thicken existing turf.
An additional aspect of overseeding is to add alternate varieties of grass. This may be necessary, if your existing lawn is of a variety which is more susceptible to certain diseases or insects in your locality.
