Why Should I Aerate ??


Aerating your lawn after the heavy winter snows have melted away will break up soil compaction and allow oxygen and water to make its way down to the root zone. This is a key treatment to stimulate growth of those grass roots. Aeration also encourages the penetration of water, air, and important nutrients into the soil. A properly aerated lawn will also help prevent thatch build up.

Aerating your lawn promotes a more lush green lawn by allowing a fresh environment for new grass to grow. It is also one of the best things you can do for your lawn. The service offers many benefits to your lawn -Aeration reduces water runoff and puddling, improves fertilizer uptake and use, creates stronger roots in your turf, and reduces soil compaction (especially after the winter we have had in Kennewick, Pasco and Richland this year.

Aeration also helps breakdown and remove thatch. (Excessive thatch forms a barrier that keeps moisture and air from going where your grass needs it. Aeration is an excellent way to dethatch your lawn).
