Aeration

turf aerationBeautiful and healthy lawns entail hours of effort and professional care. Mowing, fertilizing, and watering are all necessary to the upkeep of your commercial property landscape. Also very important is the periodic aeration of your lawn to ensure that nutrients reach the soil beneath the grass. As you will discover, aeration of your lawn is a practice that is beneficial for a beautiful lawn.
Aeration of your lawn is described as the mechanical creation of holes in the soil which removes small plugs of thatch and helps to improve natural soil aeration. Mechanical aeration provides the best means of correcting and alleviating soil compaction as aeration perforates the soil to allow such items as nutrients, water, and air to penetrate to the roots of the grass. The roots will then grow deeper, allowing for a stronger, more beautiful, and healthier lawn.
Aeration is vital for a healthy and aesthetically pleasing lawn as it allows air and water to penetrate the lawn for soil cultivation and to alleviate soil compaction. This process is most commonly called “core aeration.” CAM Control recommends that lawn aeration be done annually in the spring to provide the best results. Our technicians provide all the necessary tools, equipment, and expertise for professional lawn aeration.
