You see a variety of threats, from weeds to diseases, in your lawn from one season to the next. But did you know there’s an enemy you can’t see that could be draining the life from your lawn? It’s called soil compaction and when it happens, grass roots get squeezed and can’t take in proper amounts of air, nutrients, and water. It’s a formula for standing water, deficient grass, and turf that’s weak and vulnerable. Let Lawn Doctor of Central Bergen help with lawn aeration, available in the Ridgewood, NJ area.
Lawn Aeration: The Benefits for Yards in the Ridgewood Area
Your lawn experiences a lot of wear and tear every year, from kids stomping across your grass to pets running and playing. Add to that regular lawn mowing, vehicle traffic, and dense clay soil, and your lawn is ripe for compaction. Thatch, too, can grow thick on the surface, blocking out sunlight and other vital essentials from penetrating the ground. You’ll see the effects of compaction and heavy thatch in the form of puddles of water that stay on the surface after rainfall. Other symptoms include discoloration, patchy or thin grass, and less tolerance to drought, heat, and other common stressors.
But with aeration from our lawn team, homeowners have a simple path for dealing with these issues and getting their lawns back on track. In fact, once aerated, your lawn will be able to:
- Develop a more robust root structure that can expand deeper into the soil
- Gain more direct and consistent access to needed essentials, like air, water, and nutrients
- Absorb heat more efficiently
- Better resist issues with thatch, pests, and diseases in the future
Lawn Aeration: How Our Approach Works
Leave the hassle of aerating to the specialists at Lawn Doctor of Central Bergen. When you do, you’ll gain access to the industry’s best approach – core aeration – combined with proprietary, cutting edge equipment not offered from any other aeration team in the Ridgewood area. We use it to cut out small soil plugs, just a few inches deep, creating pathways for life-sustaining resources to penetrate through to the root system.
You can also count on our specialists for timing the job correctly. For cool-season lawns common to our Northeast climate, the start of spring and fall are the ideal times for aeration. This is during the growth cycle, just prior to its peak, meaning your lawn can recover quickly, producing results you can see in the weeks and months that follow.
