Good soil is the foundation of a healthy lawn. Soil can become compacted from lots of use such as mowing, walking and other activities on the lawn. This can develop into a problem for any lawn but especially on heavy loam and clay soils.
If the ground is compacted it is harder for air and water to penetrate, which will result in poor grass growth, and discoloured growth or bare patches. As part of your TruGreen® lawn care programme the process of lawn aeration would be used to loosen the soil allowing nutrients, water and oxygen to penetrate, promoting deeper and stronger root growth.
A good lawn aeration programme not only reduces soil compaction, controls grass thatch, helps control or eliminate moss, but can also thicken turf, reducing weeds and increasing your lawns stress tolerance.
Does your lawn suffer from any of the following?
Lawn aeration is the key to good cultural care and will almost certainly help alleviate these problems, allowing deeper root growth into the soil ensuring strong healthy plants at all times!
