What does Aeration even do

 In Advise, Aeration

Hey guys, Ted of Summit here. And today let’s talk about aeration. So I’m going to the backyard that we just finished air rating. And aeration is what lets your lawn breathe. That’s what opens up the soil and breaks it up so that your lawn can recuperate and replenish itself after the hot summer we just had, honestly, sunshine, watering, mowing, fertilizing, it’s not enough to get the best out of your lawn. To really get the best out of it, we need to open it up here in the fall. The purpose of this is coming off of these hot, stressful summers, your lawn now needs to recover. And to recover, we want to open it up so that oxygen can get down to the soil, fertilize, you can get down in there, water can get down in there, and this is where the roots of your grass are a rule of thumb, no aeration equals stagnant, not long growth, it’s not going to grow very well.

So we need to help your lawn recover this fall with aeration. There are two ways to do that. There’s liquid aeration and core aeration. So if you’ve ever seen little plugs of soil like this all over the lawn that’s not
A giant hamster that pooped everywhere. It’s not dog poop. These are chunks of soil that have gotten pulled out of the lawn. We did core aeration on this lawn, we did not use the liquidation here. And the purpose of this, as I said, is to help your lawn recover coming out of summer and get ready for next year.

The next two fertilizer applications here in the early fall, and in the late fall, the winterizer. These are the most important steps to a fertilizer program. And this air ration just exponentially makes these steps more powerful. So if you need help, air rating if you don’t want to have to go to Home Depot, track down a truck, borrow a truck from a friend, rent it, then get it home, then do the job then get it back. Let us know that’s what we’re here to help with. So shoot us a message or shoot us an estimate request on our website. Thanks
