Spring has officially come upon us, and we could not be more excited! Spring is one of our busiest seasons. We are out and about turning on irrigation systems, cleaning up your yards, pruning those shrubs, and aerating your lawns. But what exactly are the benefits of aerating your lawn? Well, the answer is…a lot!
Making Room for Improvement
We all (hopefully) know that the key to a healthy lawn and garden is good soil. Aeration makes room in the once-compacted soil for water, air, and nutrients to flow in freely. As small pieces of soil are removed, the surrounding soil moves into the open space, making it much less dense and therefore creating space for the proper elements to come through.
Root for Roots
The more compact your soil is, the harder it is for roots to continue deeper and get the right nutrients for healthy growth. Aeration relieves the density and allows roots the freedom to grow!
Runoff No More
Aerating your lawn can also mitigate any runoff or puddling issues that you may have. This will, in turn, reduce the amount of erosion that your yard will experience and prolong the life (and look) of your lawn.
There are so many benefits of aerating your lawn, and it’s an extremely important step to take when it comes to caring for your lawn. Luckily for you, we can help! Let our experts get your yard spring-ready. Contact us today to set something up – availability is going fast!
