Why is Lawn Aeration Necessary?
In most home lawns, the natural soil
has been seriously disturbed by the building process. Fertile
top soil may have been removed or buried during excavation of
the basement or footings, leaving top soil that is more compacted,
higher in clay content and less desirable for healthy lawn growth.
These lawns need aeration to improve the depth and extent of turf
grass rooting and to improve fertilizer and water use.
A properly aerated and fertilized lawn is vital to trees as well as grass and shrubs.
Aeration allows proper nutrient and oxygen intake through the trees' root systems and contributes to a balanced eco-system.
