There are certain maintenance requirements your lawn has to look its best. One of them is aeration. All that foot traffic – from kids, pets, and party guests – combined with other factors, like heavy rains, lead to soil compaction. Along with a rise in surface thatch, these both stress roots and blades by blocking the flow of water, air, and nutrients. But at Lawn Doctor of Montgomery County, we have the solution you need. With our lawn aeration service, available in and around the Gaithersburg area, we can remedy compaction and thatch to get your lawn growing strong again.
Aerating Your Lawn: What are the Benefits?
At Lawn Doctor of Montgomery County, we recommend regular aeration for local lawns. If your soil type is clay or if your yard gets a lot of use, then annual treatments are often the best course. For those lawns with less risk for compaction, every other year can contribute significantly to healthier growing conditions.
Once your soil is well-aerated, your lawn can benefit in a range of ways, including with:
- A root system that can grow more deeply
- Better use of fertilizer
- More efficient drainage and water uptake
- Increased air exchange in the soil
- Fewer maintenance requirements
Not sure whether your lawn needs to be aerated now or in the future? Look for signs like rainwater that’s puddling or running off, along with thinning or weak growth. You can also test the soil by sticking a screwdriver or pencil into it. This will be hard to do if soil is compacted.
Lawn Aeration: Why Choose Our Local Team?
With our services, you get a tried-and-tested approach to aeration that provides Gaithersburg-area homeowners with the best path to a healthy, thriving lawn. Called core aeration, we use Turf Tamer®, our exclusive, cutting-edge equipment, to cut out evenly spaced soil plugs from around your yard. This process creates holes that not only reduce compaction and thatch, but also enable air, water, and nutrients to circulate into the soil and reach grass roots.
Another benefit to choosing Lawn Doctor of Montgomery County is our expertise. With our aeration services, homeowners never have to worry about renting an expensive machine, spending weekends aerating, or making a damaging mistake. Instead, we will evaluate your lawn and grass types in it so we can recommend the right time to aerate. It’s a recipe for beautiful, long-lasting results.
