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.
Especially helpful for new lawns suffering from construction compaction and disrupted soils, aeration helps rebuild soil to enhance oxygen and water movement in the root zone.
Aeration also slows thatch build-up by increasing micro-organism activity, allowing thatch to decompose naturally.
Core Aeration can save on your watering bill by reducing runoff and increasing moisture infiltration to the root zone.
*** As a reminder, if you have a lawn sprinkler system, the sprinkler heads need to be marked prior to core aeration to avoid potential damage. (Contact our office for free marking flags.)
