Almost everyone understands the need for regular fertilization, watering and proper mowing in maintaining a healthy lawn. Few people, however, realize the importance and benefits of lawn aeration. Soil compaction can be your lawn’s worst enemy. Compacted soils restrict air penetration deep in the soil, causing roots to suffocate and die. As a result, roots grow shallow and horizontal up on the surface where air is available. This condition leads to weak, unhealthy turf, thatch problems and lawns that are more susceptible to drought, insect and disease injury. The root system is the heart of the grass plant. Core aerating on an annual basis encourages deep, dense, healthy root growth. Lawns with healthy root systems are stronger and better able to survive insects, disease and drought conditions.
