Why Lawn Aeration Is Critical

Why Lawn Aeration Is Critical

Lawn aeration is a service that ultimately results in fuller, healthier grass and plants. Also called lawn restoration, the process revitalizes soil health, encourages healthy growth, and allows water and nutrients to reach roots. This aeration service is important before laying sod or overseeding to ensure the soil is ready for new healthy root systems to be established.

In our part of Oregon, changes in temperature, rainfall, and snow can cause the soil to become compacted, which make it difficult for grass and plants to remain healthy. Over time, soil breaks down and can also lose its vitality. As a result, we recommend this service be done annually in order to maintain ideal growing conditions and to help prevent thatching that blocks light and air from getting to your grass.

Aeration Revitalizes Soil Health

Lawn aerator machines have mechanical spines that poke holes through the soil in even intervals. The process is often called “core aeration.” The result is reduced compaction and a network of holes or channels that allow water, light, and air to reach deep into the soil.

With fertilization and proper watering, the soil will begin to regain its health and helpful microbes begin to reproduce. These microbes can help to fight off unhealthy bacteria, fungus, and mold that can plague your grass. Overall, the soil will be revitalized and brought back to life, leading to stronger, fuller grass and plants.
