Timing Your Aeration for Optimal Results

There is a lot that goes into aeration. If you don’t know what aeration is, it is a process where several, evenly-spaced, small holes are created a few inches into the ground across turf. These holes allow grass to absorb things like nutrients and moisture better and loosen up impacted soil. We will talk more about these benefits in just a bit. Before we break these things down further, let’s talk about the absolute best time to utilize aeration in your yard. 

Experts all agree that the fall is the best time to aerate lawns. This is mostly because of the condition of the soil during this time. As opposed to the spring, when the soil is cold, packed, and full of dormant weed seeds, fall soil is warm and does not yet have weed seeds that are ready to sprout. 

Weeds are the key here. Aeration allows for general plant health throughout your yard. If you aerate when weeds can thrive alongside healthy grass, you could find yourself with more negative than positive plant growth on your property. This is something that we work hard to avoid when we utilize this service on local yards. We also combine our efforts with many other lawn care services, including weed control, fertilization, and watering to make sure your grass has the best chance of success.

Maximizing Water and Nutrient Absorption

There are lots of benefits that come with aeration. One of the biggest benefits, and the reason why this service is so successful in healing dying grass is the availability of water and nutrients. Impacted soil and thick top thatch make draining and nutrient absorption challenging for turf. Aeration creates air pockets and easy access for these life-sustaining resources to take care of your lawn. There is also a huge benefit that comes from the oxidization of soil due to accessible oxygen. We will talk about this more in just a bit. Whether you are trying to cultivate new grass or heal existing turf that has grown withered over time, aeration could be the key to solving your issues. It could also play a big role in strengthening roots and helping you maintain thicker grass overall. How does it do this? Let’s look into this benefit further. 

Stronger Roots and Thicker Grass

There is something odd you need to know about grass. Their roots need air. This is odd because roots are typically underground. How can something underground get air? The answer is simple. They usually get air because the soil is porous. When soil is condensed, it prevents the flow of oxygen. This, as you might expect, is a problem. When grass roots are not able to absorb the oxygen they need, they slowly wither, and this creates dead spots throughout the yard. Aeration opens pathways for oxygen and lets roots get what they need to grow stronger. This, in turn, allows grass to grow thicker and promotes year-round health. One great thing about aeration is that it has these lasting effects. Unlike other services that need to be applied every year to maximize effectiveness, aeration is a service that is only required every four to five years. This can change, however, if your yard experiences heavy foot traffic that aids in the compacting of soil over time. Regardless, know that this service works and that it could play a huge role in bringing your yard back to health. 

Sometimes aeration alone is not enough to bring your property back to life. If there is not enough healthy grass, you may want to invest in seeding. Now, this process can be complicated. To start, we will have to identify what type of grass your soil prefers and what species are currently on your property. After we discover these things, we will utilize the benefits of aeration to apply seed in an optimal way. All of our methods are designed to revitalize your turf as quickly as possible and we use advanced methods and products. One of the biggest facets of customer satisfaction with our lawn care and lawn aerating is communication. We want to know from you what you would like to see on your property. Start by talking with one of our professionals. Our team will work with you to discuss your goals for the next several months, regarding the beautification of your property. This will allow us to create a plan of action to aerate, seed, fertilize and perform other necessary lawn care services to meet your needs.
