Core aeration is a process where a machine pulls plugs of soil, thatch, and grass out of the ground. Perhaps you’ve seen public lawns or neighbors’ yards with these plugs spread across the lawn. This service is performed once a year, usually in the spring or fall, and has quite a few benefits:
- It fights against soil compaction by opening pathways for water, fertilizer, and air to sink deeper into the ground.
- Holes are opened in the thatch layer (Thatch can block water and nutrients from reaching the grass roots, harming the health of your lawn).
- The plugs spread nutrients and microbes more evenly throughout your lawn as they breakdown, helping to break down the thatch layer.
- Improved drainage so water will stop pooling in your yard when you turn on the sprinklers or after a heavy rain.
