The Benefits of Aeration

Compacted soil prevents the grasses from establishing a healthy root system. Adequate amounts of vital turf nutrients including water (H2O), oxygen (O2, nitrates (NO3), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) are unable to reach the roots.

Aerators relieve soil compaction by removing evenly-spaced cored plugs of turf from 1″ to 3″ inch depths. Aerator’s coring plugs relieve the compaction caused by natural settling, mowing and foot traffic. Once aerated air exchange is improved and the soil can easily absorb water, fertilizer and other nutrients.

Aeration also promotes deeper root growth, keeping your lawn green and healthy during the heat of the summer months.
