Core Aeration removes plugs (small cores of soil) from the soil, allowing better water penetration to the root zone. Aeration helps loosen hard, compacted soils encouraging root growth.

Thatch buildup is rarely due to grass clippings, but to an accumulation of dead fibrous roots and stems that develop between the green turf grass and the soil. A small amount of thatch, about 1/2 inch, is desirable because it insulates the soil against heat and cold. However, an excess […]

By maintaining a correct cutting height of 2 1/2 – 3 inches, two objectives are accomplished. First, it conserves water needs by shielding and cooling the root soil area. Second, turf is stronger, thicker and healthier because grass blade areas carry on major functions of growth. A taller grass blade […]
