Compacted soil can be caused by a wide variety of both internal and external factors, and it can stunt your lawn’s growth and lead to a swift decline in its overall health. Your lawn depends on the consistent circulation of oxygen, nutrients and water, and compacted topsoil constricts plant roots and makes accessing these essential elements much more difficult. With the lawn aeration service we offer at Lawn Doctor of Bethlehem-Hellertown, we help improve soil conditions and give a healthy boost to lawns all over the Bethlehem, PA area.
Determining When You Need Lawn Aeration
While many homeowners and lawn care enthusiasts understand the importance of lawn aeration, it’s not always clear when aeration becomes necessary. The best way to tell if your lawn is in need of aeration is to schedule your free lawn evaluation with our technicians, but here are some quick checks you can conduct on your own to see if your Bethlehem-area lawn’s side effects point toward soil compaction:
- Do you park your vehicles on your lawn?
- Do you entertain frequently on your lawn?
- Does your lawn form puddles during light rainfall?
- Does your lawn have clay soil?
- Does your lawn have brown patches?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of those questions, your lawn will most likely benefit from our aeration treatments. In addition to the actual process of aerating, our aeration treatments also include the development of an optimized aeration schedule. There are times throughout the year that your lawn benefits more from aeration than others, and our technicians will work with you to determine the best time to perform our lawn aeration service for optimized results and lasting health.
How Lawn Aeration Can Help Bethlehem-Area Residents
Aerating your lawn comes with several benefits. The most immediate benefits are the diffusion and loosening of your topsoil, which allows more consistent circulation of the water, oxygen and nutrients that your grass needs to grow. Another benefit of aeration lies within the physical space of your soil. With more wiggle room, your grass will be able to grow deeper, stronger roots to produce consistent growth.
