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