Even the best cared for lawns experience soil compaction due to many different factors. Thatch can also build up on the soil surface, further impacting growth. When this happens in your yard, Lawn Doctor of Longmont-Boulder can help. With our lawn aeration services, offered all over the Boulder and Longmont, CO areas, we can loosen up thatch, break down compaction, and build up your lawn’s health so it thrives in the season to come.
Lawn Aeration: What are the Benefits?
Does your lawn get a lot of use? Do you have clay soil? These factors and others can all lead to issues with compaction. When soil gets compressed and thatch thickens up, it stresses grass roots, leading to standing water, poor growth, and spreading weeds.
The good news is that aerating your lawn is a simple and effective way to combat these issues and get your lawn into great health again. In fact, with lawn aeration services from Lawn Doctor of Longmont-Boulder, you can expect to see a variety of key benefits, including:
- More efficient use of fertilizer due to better nutrient absorption
- Enhanced air flow and water uptake
- Less water runoff and puddling
- Better tolerance to drought, extreme temperatures and other environmental stress
- A stronger root system that has room to breathe and grow
Lawn Aeration Services: How Our Process Works
Core aeration removes plugs of soil and thatch, creating channels through which more nutrients, oxygen, water, and other essentials can penetrate to roots. We also aerate at times of year best-suited for local grasses, insuring active growth right after treatment. Not only does this mean holes fill in faster, but it also minimizes interference from weeds.
In terms of results, expect to see a lawn that looks stronger and fuller in the weeks and months after aeration. Most lawns benefit from aeration once a year, others require a spring aeration as well as fall aeration. Lawn Doctor of Longmont – Boulder offer core aeration service in the spring and in the fall only.
