Aerification is one of the single most important things you can do for your yard after a year like we have had.  Some of the benefits of aeration are listed below.

  • Loosens Compacted Soil
  • Breaks-up and/or removes thatch
  • Improves Water Infiltration
  • Improves Nutrient Infiltration
  • Increases Oxygen Supply to Roots
  • Releases Carbon Dioxide
  • Encourages New, Deeper Root Growth

Make sure before aeration that you water 4-5 times / week for about 2-3 weeks so you get the results you are looking for.  Without this the tines will not make it the 2-3" depth that is needed.
