Lawn aeration is a process in which you make tiny holes in your lawn to allow water, air, and some other nutrients so that the grass can grow properly.
- The primary purpose of aerating is to alleviate soil compaction. The compacted soil has a lot of solid particles, which prevents the proper fertilization, watering, and circulation of air.
Here at Doc Bros, we think aeration is a good technique for the grass on your lawn. Here are some benefits of the aeration process.
Relieves Soil Compaction
The significant benefit of lawn aeration is that it relieves soil compaction because the compacted soil can stop the air, water, and essential nutrients from getting into the roots of the grass.
It can cause dead spots, brown patches, and thinning that stop your lawn grass’s proper growth.
- Aerating your lawn allows the air, water, and nutrients to enter the grass’s roots points, enhancing the development and making your yard grassy and beautiful.
Increase Nutrients Availability
The main reason for aeration is to help the soil get the right nutrients for the proper growth of the grass. By making the small holes in the ground and giving access to water, air, and nutrients, the grass will grow correctly and in significantly less time.
- Many nutrients, like fertilizers, work efficiently by penetrating the root zone. This will improve the growing functionality of the grass in your lawn.
Aids in Thatch Management
The layer of dead grass on your lawn is a big reason for the slow growth of your grass on the property. This layer is called thatch; this is thin but can be a significant risk for your property. This layer doesn’t allow the rain, air, and other essential nutrients to get into the grass’s root zone.
- The aeration process decomposes this layer, and the necessary things for the grassroots are readily available for grass.
Builds a Thicker Lawn
The aeration process speeds up the growth of the grass and makes your lawn grassy in a quick timeframe, and it stimulates root development.
- In the spring season, you need more seeds for the bare spots and thicken up the turf; if you do aeration and overseeding simultaneously, you will get some best results, like building a thicker lawn. More seeds can occur because of the tiny holes, and the grass will grow in large amounts.
Benefits pH Modification
- If you want to get some good results from the aeration process, lime or sulfur can help you in this regard. Try adding a product containing lime or sulfur after the aeration process because it also helps maintain the pH of the soil.
