Aerating Your Lawn Allows It To Breathe
The aeration process essentially is designed to bring moisture and air deep into your lawn’s roots. This is an important step to take after the long, dry summer months.
The summer heat tends to dry out homeowner’s lawns. If you let this go too far, your soil and grass can be in immense danger. Therefore, it’s important to begin aerating your lawn as soon as you can. This will allow your soil to open up and absorb all the needed nutrients it deserves.
How Does Aeration Work?
The aeration process actually runs pretty smoothly. Before homeowners begin aerating their lawn, they tend to think aeration can tear up their lawn and that’s absolutely not the case. Aeration does quite the opposite. It allows your lawn to shine.
Before a specialist aerates your lawn, they will examine the health of your grass. An expert will analyze every aspect of your turf to ensure they tackle the job properly. An aeration professional will remove what we call ‘plugs’ from your lawn. This process proceeds in a safe manner. If it’s done without a professional, you may begin damaging your lawn.
Once the plugs are removed from your lawn, it’s up to mother nature to finish the rest. Nutrients will immediately be absorbed and your lawn will thank you. After your lawn is aerated, sit back, relax, and watch your lawn thrive.
