The Benefits of Aerating a Lawn
A consistent fertilization and water schedules are important for ensuring a healthy lawn is Scarsdale ny. However grass also need air in order to breathe. Lawn aeration allows holes to be made in the soil so that the grass can breathe and absorb water and nutrients. Over time regular traffic, sports, play and even time can cause compaction, limiting the amount of nutrients, air and water to reach the roots of your lawn.
In the core aeration process, a machine removes soil cores to reduce compaction so that oxygen, water, and fertilizer can more easily penetrate into the soil. Aerating improves your lawn’s ability to grow thick and healthy in the following ways:
1.Earthworms and other microorganisms that decompose thatch have more room to live.
2.Root systems can grow deeper, enhancing their tolerance to cold winters and summer droughts.
3.Fertilizer and oxygen can infiltrate the soil and circulate to the grass roots.
4.Opening up the soil keeps rainwater from running off, allowing for better drainage and increasing your lawn’s water-holding capacity.
The ideal time to aerate a lawn is every spring and fall when the grass is actively growing. The crews at Red Carpet Landscaping can help you determine when the best time would be to aerate your lawn. We also understand that not everyone’s lawn is the same in Scarsdale.
For some lawns, it may be beneficial to plant additional grass seed on your existing lawn after the aeration process if it shows signs of deterioration or if your grass is a variety that is more susceptible to disease, insects, or drought.
