Most people are familiar with the term “Beauty is more than just skin deep.” That statement is not only true for people, but also for our landscapes! That’s why aeration is such an important piece of building a healthy and beautiful landscape. Not only that, it’s also important for our environment!
Lawn aeration includes the removal of small soil plugs (about the size of your thumb) from your lawn. This process helps oxygen, water and nutrients move into the root zone which results in:
- Improved watering efficiency for water conservation
- Reduced fertilizer runoff into our lakes and streams
- Improved drought and heat tolerance
By doing this, it allows your lawn to eat, drink and breathe. Ahh…now that’s refreshing!
