Lawn Aeration: How Our Process Works For the Altoona Area
While you can certainly aerate on your own, the equipment is expensive and often hard to use. Not only that, but one mistake can cause serious damage and lead to issues with weeds and diseases. Instead, call in Lawn Doctor of Altoona – Johnstown – Bedford County for a meticulous approach to lawn aeration.
Our team of experts relies on the core aeration method, during which we use our proprietary, state-of-the-art Turf Tamer® equipment to dig out small plugs of soil, grass, and thatch from throughout your lawn. Beyond introducing more air into the soil, this process also creates pathways for an increased level of nutrients and water to get absorbed by grass roots.
With Lawn Doctor of Altoona – Johnstown – Bedford County, you can count on our team to aerate at the right time of year to ensure active growth after aeration, all with little competition from weeds. In addition, our team can seed your lawn once we aerate, which will go a long way in boosting turf density.
