Lawn aeration is one of the necessary maintenance treatments to keep your lawn healthy and looking great throughout the season. When your lawn’s soil becomes compacted, it can cause a steady health decline. Compacted soil prevents your lawn’s plant and root systems from having access to a steady flow of the elements they need to survive. Aeration breaks up the soil to reinstate this healthy circulation and get your lawn back on track to consistent growth. At Lawn Doctor of Cypress, we offer home and business owners in the Cypress, TX area our lawn aeration service to boost their lawn’s access to everything it needs to grow and thrive.
Determining if Your Lawn Needs Aeration
Lawn aeration is beneficial to most lawns, but there are some strategic times throughout the year when aeration will yield the best results in Cypress. Here are a few telltale signs that can hint that your lawn is ready to be aerated:
- Your lawn is composed of clay soil that has not been recently aerated
- Your lawn is thinning or experiencing stunted growth
- Puddles form on your lawn when it rains
- Your lawn has been damaged due to vehicles or machinery being parked on grass, outdoor entertaining or sports
- Your lawn has developed brown spots
If your lawn can be characterized by any of the above, it is likely ready for aeration. As a more general rule of thumb, aeration is usually the most effective just prior to the prime growing season, which will depend on the kind of grass that populates your lawn. Warm season grasses will see the best results from aeration in late spring, while cool season grasses should be aerated closer to the beginning of spring.
How Our Lawn Aeration Treatments Help Cypress Residents
Regular aeration provides your lawn with several benefits. When we aerate your lawn, we increase its permeability, allowing heat, water and oxygen to more readily penetrate the top layers of your soil. With this boost in your lawn’s access to these elements, it can develop stronger, healthier roots. Breaking up the soil through aeration also loosens the earth around your lawn’s roots to give them more room to grow and spread.
