Lawn Aeration in Dubuque: What Is It And When Do You Need It?

Your grass roots need room to breathe and grow. But factors ranging from foot traffic to clay soil to furniture on your lawn can cause soil to become compacted and constricted. When thatch spreads thick on the surface, this too leads to further problems as nutrients, air, and water can’t penetrate into the ground. But at Lawn Doctor of Dubuque, we have the solution you need. With our lawn aeration service, offered to customers all over Dubuque, IA, we can maximize soil conditions, so grass can grow back healthier and stronger.

Lawn Aeration from Lawn Doctor of Dubuque: What Are the Benefits?

Aeration is a process that aims to loosen up compacted soil, cut down on surface thatch, and improve the uptake of air, water, and nutrients in the root system. Once soil conditions are improved, your lawn will benefit in a variety of ways. For instance, it will:

  • Develop a stronger root system that’s deeper and more extensive
  • Better be able to tolerate stress from the environment and climate conditions
  • Have greater resistance to pests, diseases, insects, and weeds
  • Look better and grow in thicker thanks to boosted overall health

At Lawn Doctor of Dubuque, we know typical signs your lawn could benefit from lawn aeration include a lack of water retention. You’ll notice it with puddling water or water that’s running off. Also, poor clay-based soil composition puts your lawn at a higher risk for compaction, as does a lot of foot and vehicle traffic during any given season. If you’re also seeing signs of spreading weeds and weak growth and color, these can indicate deficiencies related to compaction.
