Active kids and pets, vehicle traffic, dense soil types, and poor composition all lead to soil compaction and thatch build-up. When these issues occur, your lawn suffers in the form of stressed-out roots and weak growth. Let Lawn Doctor of Annapolis help. With our lawn aeration services, available across the Annapolis, MD area, we can break open your soil, alleviating compaction and heavy thatch. This enables roots to breathe again and better absorb much-needed nutrients and other vital essentials from the soil. It’s a recipe for healthier growth and a stronger lawn overall.
Lawn Aeration from Lawn Doctor of Annapolis: What Are the Benefits?
There are many symptoms that point to soil compaction. These include standing water that’s not getting absorbed, thinning grass, and susceptibility to weeds and pests. In addition, clay soil is more prone to compaction, as are yards that see heavy usage. Another sign of compaction is when you try to stick a pencil or screwdriver into the soil and it doesn’t go in easily.
When compaction happens, it stops water and air movement, limiting root growth. Over time, it even suffocates them. That’s where lawn aeration from Lawn Doctor of Annapolis comes in. With it, we can create improved conditions for:
- Fertilizer to penetrate the soil
- Absorption of oxygen and key nutrients, like nitrogen
- Absorption of sunlight
- Enhanced water uptake
- Deeper growing roots and better overall health in your lawn
Lawn Aeration Services: How Our Process in Annapolis Works
Some homeowners handle aeration on their own by renting an aeration machine. However, if you’d rather avoid this unwieldy and expensive equipment, call in the local lawn aeration experts at Lawn Doctor of Annapolis. We take a proven approach, timed carefully for your specific grass type, whether warm- or cool-season. With it, we put our exclusive, leading-edge Turf Tamer® equipment to use in a process called core aeration. This simply cores out small plugs of grass and soil from around your yard.
Through aeration, Lawn Doctor of Annapolis will break down heavy thatch growing on your soil surface, as well as get air, water, and nutrients flowing back into your soil. Once your lawn can breathe again, roots will grow stronger and deeper, leading to a more vigorous-looking lawn. Beyond aerating your lawn, our team can seed too if you’d like to enhance grass thickness, color, and consistency.
With aeration services from Lawn Doctor of Annapolis, you can enjoy activities, whether it’s hitting the golf course or the gym, while we get your yard growing strong again. You can expect to see results several weeks after lawn aeration.
