An aeration treatment removes small cores of soil and thatch to allow air, moisture and nutrients to penetrate down into the root zone. The cores brought to the surface contain microorganisms, which help the breakdown of the woody thatch tissue layer just below the lawn’s crown. As the thatch layer is broken down, it is converted into organic matter that will then combine with existing soil particles.
Bailey’s offers aeration treatments for lawns of all sizes and, combined with a fertilization routine, will get your lawn healthy and keep it looking great all season.
Why Should I Aerate My Lawn?
So what is the big deal about punching holes in your turf? Punching holes in your lawn, known as lawn aeration, is key in maintaining a healthy lawn. By aerating your yard, nutrients and air are able to reach the soil and roots giving the turf more of its essentials. Over time, foot traffic and mowing will compact the soil making it difficult for lawns to breathe. Compacted soil inhibits the growth of plants and can leave your lawn looking like it is lacking its luster.
We also offer seeding services to fill in patchy areas and get your lawn full and lush throughout.
