Seeing brown spots, puddles of water, and stunted growth? One common culprit is soil compaction. Roots need a steady flow of air, water, and nutrients to survive and thrive. But when soil is too dense, it compresses them and restricts key essentials from getting absorbed. Lawn Doctor of Beavercreek-Bellbrook & Lawn Doctor of Centerville-Springboro can help. With our lawn aeration services, offered all over Beavercreek, Bellbrook, Centerville, Springboro, and other nearby southwestern OH communities, we can open up your lawn, improve circulation in the soil, and get grass growing strong again.
Lawn Aeration: The Benefits for Yards in the Beavercreek Area
We use a method called core aeration that involves puncturing your soil and removing small cores. This creates holes that let air, water, and nutrients get absorbed into the root zone. It also cuts down on the heavy layer of surface thatch – where pests and diseases like to hide and breed – that is inhibiting root growth and contributing to problems in your lawn.
Once conditions are well-aerated, roots can grow stronger and deeper, producing a healthier lawn in the process. This method also:
- Improves the efficiency of nutrient, water, and oxygen uptake
- Leads to greater resistance to pests, diseases, and other lawn care issues
- Boosts tolerance to climate stress, like high and low temperatures and drought conditions
All lawns need aeration. But if you have clay soil, drive vehicles on it often, or there’s high foot traffic, then compaction is more likely to happen. Likewise, if you have a new-build home, where equipment was parked on your lawn, then compacted soil is often an issue.
Lawn Aeration: Why Choose Our Local Team?
Aeration offers your lawn a host of benefits, but only when it’s done right. Don’t risk a mistake in timing or waste your weekend struggling with a DIY approach. Instead, let our expert team handle aeration so you can get professional-looking results. We have the state-of-the-art equipment and extensive experience to ensure the job gets performed properly so you see noticeable results in the weeks and months that follow.
In terms of timing, the best point to aerate your lawn depends on the grasses growing in it. For cool-season lawns, this means early spring or fall. Warm-season grass should be aerated later in spring. This is just prior to peak growth, when grass will be able to grow in quickly with minimal pressure from aggressive weeds. We can even seed and fertilize afterwards to thicken up your turf and give your grass the fuel it needs.
