Aeration is essential for lawns that have a continuous stream of foot-traffic or have recently gone through a prolonged drought. Both of these cause compression within the soil, restricting air, water, and root growth which makes it difficult for your grass to thrive.
Through the process of extracting “cores” throughout the lawn, you alleviate pressure and allow your grass to get the nutrients it needs.
During the Aeration process, we also highly recommend that you consider Overseeding as well. While your lawn is opened up, this is the perfect time to introduce new seeds that can sprout and give your lawn a dense growth a new green grass.
When is the right time to get Aeration and Overseeding done?
The best time to get these off your todo list is during early Spring or Fall, this gives your grass time to heal and fill in the areas where “cores” were extracted to open up the soil.
In addition to making Aeration and Overseeding a priority in the Fall, there are also a few tell-tale signs that it needs to become a higher priority on your list.
One easy way to test if it’s time to have Aeration done is by conducting the “Screw driver test.” Stick the screw driver head first into your lawn to see if you have any trouble. If there is a good amount of resistance, it’s probably time to have your lawn aerated.
