|Power core aeration is one of the
most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration
helps control thatch and soil compaction. This occurs by creating
growth packets for new roots, and opens the way for water and
fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn. The price
is based on lawn size.
HOW IT WORKS
Aeration removes thousands of small cores of soil 1" to
3" in length from your lawn. These cores "melt"
back into the lawn after a few rainfalls, mixing with what ever
thatch exists on your lawn. The holes created by aeration catch
fertilizer and water. Turf roots naturally grow towards these
growth pockets and thicken in the process. Aeration holes also
relieve pressure from compacted soils, letting oxygen and water
move more freely into the root zone.
WHAT ARE THE RESULTS
Performed annually, aeration means better response from the
water and fertilizer that are applied to the lawn. It means
fewer problems with insects and fungus disease. All which translate
into a greener, thicker lawn to enjoy all season long.
