Core Lawn Aeration
Akron Canton Lawn Care in Massillon & Jackson Township OH offers lawn aeration services. Grass roots need air, water and nutrients to grow healthy and make your lawn look great. Two things that keep all this good stuff from reaching the roots are thatch build up and hard compacted soil conditions. Lawn core aeration will eliminate both of those problems.
How’s core aeration done?
A commercial core aerator pulls out thousands of plugs of thatch and soil core plugs from your lawn. The hollow blades of the aerator cut through the thatch layers and into the soil, then leaving the soil plugs to decompose on top of the ground. These wide open paths where the plugs used to be allow for easy penetration of life-giving air, water, fertilizer and nutrients.
What is the problem with thatch?
Thatch is the layer just above the soil of decaying plant life in your lawn. Thatch continues to build up without aeration, forming a habitat for insects and disease to thrive in constantly. Core aeration is an easy way to break through the thatch and open up the soil immediately.
Why should you worry about compacted soil?
Soil, especially if it has lots of clay, can become compacted and dense very quickly in a lawn. It is hard for anything, including roots of plants, to get through. Taking out cores gives the soil a new lease on life in your lawn. Soil and roots can expand into the created spaces the aerator makes and softens the soil. It’s also easier for worms and other beneficial insects to move through the soil easily. Another great benefit is that the plugs are left on the lawn surface to break down. These plugs mix with the thatch and help it decompose more quickly. Every lawn benefits from aeration at least once a season. Golf courses know this to be a fact and aerate multiple times a year for great results.
Overseeding with Akron Canton Lawn Care
Another great service to add to aeration in Jackson Township and Massillon Ohio is overseeding. Aeration enhances seed germination in the turf. Grass seeds will germinate easier in aerator holes. Overseeding will help thicken up any lawn or also help thin and bare spots you may have. A thick healthy lawn is the best preventive against insects or disease. Let alone the added benefit of its appearance when it is thick, lush and healthy.
