Your lawn needs breathing room to grow healthy and strong. But when foot traffic, heavy furniture, equipment, vehicles, and pounding rains happen, they can compact the soil, squeezing grass roots. At the same time, a heavy layer of thatch on the surface can cause further problems by stopping the flow of sunlight, water, and nutrients from getting absorbed. Our lawn aeration service – offered in the Logan, UT area – delivers the cure. It loosens up soil, breaks down thatch, and boosts your lawn’s ability to absorb more of what it needs to thrive.
Lawn Aeration: The Benefits for Yards in the Logan Area
There are several different methods to use, but at Lawn Doctor of Cache Valley, we always rely on core aeration for local lawns. This is the most thorough approach available in the industry and provides longer-lasting results.
With it, small soil plugs a few inches deep and less than an inch in diameter are removed from your lawn. This serves to destroy heavy surface thatch, alleviate compaction, and allow more air, moisture, and nutrients to enter and percolate through the soil. With space opened up, roots can also absorb these necessary essentials more efficiently.
Once soil is loosened and surface thatch is decomposing, your lawn will benefit in a range of ways. For instance, it will be able to:
- Develop a more robust root structure to support hearty growth
- Fight off diseases, pests, and insects so they don’t take root and spread
- Tolerate stress, like heat and drought, during different seasons
- Grower in thicker, greener, and healthier with less maintenance requirements
Lawn Aeration: Why Choose Our Local Team?
At Lawn Doctor of Cache Valley, it all comes down to our aeration expertise. We can evaluate your yard and soil quality to make recommendations that will put your lawn back on track. For those grown in heavy clay soil, for instance, frequent aeration may be necessary. Looser soil types, like sandy soil, don’t need to be aerated as often.
We also typically recommend fall for aeration in the Logan area. This is just before the peak of the growing cycle for local grasses, meaning your lawn can recover quickly without fending off aggressive weeds, leaving you with a beautiful, healthy lawn.
