                           What is lawn aeration?

Lawn Core Aerator

Core Aerating a Lawn

Lawn aeration also known as core aeration is the removal of small soil plugs or cores out of the lawn. Most aeration is done with a machine having hollow tines or spoons mounted on a drum known as a core aerator. As the core aerator goes over your lawn it pulls soil plugs out then deposits the soil plugs back on to the lawn to naturally break down back into the lawn.

What will aeration do for my lawn?

As lawns age and sustain heavy use soil compaction can result. Soil compaction is increased in poorly drained parts of the lawn. Compaction greatly reduces the pore space within the soil that normally holds air and water. The grass roots require that  uptake and water infiltration, in addition to being a physical barrier to root growth, this results in poor top growth and overall all lawn deterioration
