For home or commercial lawn maintenance, aeration and the use of fertilizers are an often overlooked but incredibly important part of cultivating a healthy lawn and garden. Proper aeration allows your lawn to breathe and live a healthier life. There are numerous benefits to using this process that all contribute to better lawn health. Using the right fertilizers are also a major contributor to a greener, healthier lawn and garden. Our professional team of landscapers use the safest fertilizers and modern application techniques to help your lawn and plants stay strong and green through the seasons.
Lawn aeration is a process that uses a tool to punch holes in the ground that allows compacted grass to grow better. Essentially it helps the grass breathe which lets it grow healthier. During the spring, after heavy winter snows, we often service our clients’ lawns with aerator services to loosen the ground for spring seeding. Aeration services include both regular aeration as well as core aeration for more in depth jobs. Our lawn aeration technicians use the highest quality equipment to make sure we get the job done right giving our clients a healthier lawn through the warm season.
Benefits of Aeration
The benefits of a well aerated lawn are easily visible in our clients’ lawn health. Helping a compacted lawn through the process of aeration, aids with soil drainage allowing the water to better permeate the ground, getting the grass the nutrients it needs. In addition, a healthier lawn creates a better ecosystem that allows the lawn naturally protect itself against drying out. An aerated lawn has more worms that help keep the soil healthy which in turn cultivates more micro flora and fauna. In creating a healthier ecosystem, the lawn is able to protect itself which helps it come back healthy every year.
Fertilizing lawns is an important way for grass to get the nutrients it needs that may not be coming from its natural environment. Our lawn specialists have expertise in a variety of species of grasses, and know which fertilizers work best for their respective needs.
