Why You Should Aerate Your Lawn

Thatch Build UpAeration is needed if you have these conditions:

  • Gets heavy use, such as children and pets running around the yard contribute to soil compaction.
  • The topsoil of newly constructed lawns is stripped or buried, and the grass established on subsoil has been compacted by construction traffic.
  • Your lawn has an excessive thatch problem. If the thatch layer is greater than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
  • Was established by sod, and soil layering exists. This layering disrupts drainage, as water is held in the finer-textured soil. This leads to compacted conditions and poor root development. Aerating breaks up the layering, allowing water to flow through the soil more easily and reach the roots.
