Over time, the surface of your lawn can become tightly compacted and covered with a dense layer of thatch – a mixture of dead stems and roots that can prevent vital nutrients and water from reaching the soil. This can lead to a range of issues, including soil compaction, reduced water infiltration, and increased susceptibility to weeds, insects, drought, and disease.
One way to address these problems and keep your lawn healthy is by performing core aeration. This process involves punching holes into the turf to allow moisture, oxygen, and nutrients to penetrate the soil, improving its composition and helping to maximize turf grass rooting.
At Peter Doran Lawn & Landscape, we use top-quality seed that is free of noxious weeds to ensure the best possible results. We recommend performing aeration and over seeding once per season to all established lawns. This combination can help relieve compaction and improve the density of your lawn, making it less susceptible to damage and more resistant to the challenges of the changing seasons.
