Core Aeration is an important and highly recommended practice for many lawns. This process is used to reduce soil compaction and thatch, improve surface drainage, and improve conditions prior to overseeding. Lawn aeration inserts hollow tines into the lawn and remove plugs of soil. These cores act as topdressing which helps degrade thatch. This will help allow fertilizers and nutrients to access the root zone.  It also will ease the flow of oxygen into the soil allowing it to breathe.  Aerating the lawn can be done throughout the year as long as the turf isn’t too dry. Core aeration will reduce soil compaction and overall you will be left with a healthy beautiful lawn.
