From children and pets playing during summer to heavy rain and snow in fall, winter, and spring, your lawn experiences a lot of wear and tear through every season. As a result, soil can get compressed and surface thatch can start to take over. That’s where Lawn Doctor of Boston can help. We’re counted on by local customers throughout the Boston, MA area for a proven approach to lawn aeration that transforms weak, wilting conditions into greener, healthier grass, guaranteed.
Lawn Aeration from Lawn Doctor of Boston: What Are the Benefits?
Soil compaction and surface thatch are both enemies of healthy lawns. On the surface, when thatch starts growing heavily, it stops water, sunlight, and nutrients from getting absorbed into the ground for grass roots. Down below, compression in the soil packs particles together, putting further pressure on roots.
Over time, you’ll notice signs like puddles of water not penetrating the soil, grass looking thin and weak, and issues with weeds and pests. Your soil can also get more easily compacted if it’s clay, experiences a lot of foot traffic, or if you often park or drive vehicles or equipment on it.
Whatever the case for your lawn, aeration from Lawn Doctor of Boston can help cut down on thatch and loosen up your soil. Through a time-tested approach, our team will deliver a variety of key benefits, including:
- Better air intake
- Improved nutrient absorption
- More room for roots to grow
- Enhanced tolerance to drought and disease
- Fewer issues with weeds and thatch
Lawn Aeration Services: How Our Process in Boston Works
Handling aeration on your own can be a pain, not to mention time-consuming. Instead, hand off the job to the team trusted throughout the area for expert lawn aeration services: Lawn Doctor of Boston.
Our approach to aeration is the most thorough and effective one: core aeration. It involves coring out small plugs of grass, thatch, and soil several inches deep from around your yard. This breaks up thatch and creates openings for more life-sustaining substances, like water and nutrients, to enter into the soil and get to roots. If you want to further enhance turf quality and boost grass density, Lawn Doctor of Boston can seed your lawn after aeration.
With our experienced team, you can always expect services timed carefully to take advantage of your grass type’s peak growing season. That way, grass can easily spread and fill in cored-out holes, pushing weeds out. While we recommend regular lawn aeration, one of Lawn Doctor of Boston’s technicians will work with you to develop a custom schedule that’s best for your specific lawn’s condition and soil quality.
Lawn Doctor of Boston MA can fill all your lawn aeration needs. Our services are available in many local communities, including Metro West, Framingham, Newton, Milton, Dedham, Braintree, Weymouth, and Quincy. To learn more or set up a free consultation, call our team today at (781) 826-2920.
