Lawn Aeration is an important part of maintaining the health and beauty of any lawn. Without it, soil can become too compacted, full of organic materials such as dead leaves and grass, and generally cut off from proper air and water circulation to the grass roots. Aeration is a process by which tiny holes are made in a pattern throughout the soil, which allows air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This process will encourage the roots to grow more deeply and the nutrients made from water, sun, bugs, and air to circulate more evenly. This single process is responsible for the healthy growth of your sod or natural lawn. Without yard aeration, your lawn will surely suffer from brown or dead spots and will not have that healthy green color you desire. And this problem will compound every year until your grass eventually needs to be uprooted and replanted.
