When your lawn doesn’t have access to the essential elements it needs to grow, it can lead to a sharp and steady decline in its health. One of the common causes of this constricted access to nutrients is compacted soil. Compacted soil can cut off your lawn’s plants from the consistent flow of the oxygen, water and nutrients it needs to grow and thrive. With the lawn aeration treatments we offer at Lawn Doctor of McHenry County North and East Lake County, we put lawns all over the McHenry, Crystal Lake, Algonquin, Ingleside, Cary, Fox River Grove, Richmond, Island Lake, Spring Grove, Ringwood, Lake in the Hills, Wonder Lake, Woodstock, Mundelein, Vernon Hills, Round Lake, Libertyville, Grayslake and Wauconda, IL areas back on track by opening up previously restricted soil to allow for better circulation and root development.
When You Need Lawn Aeration
The most effective way to determine if your lawn is in need of aeration is by scheduling one of our complimentary lawn evaluations, but there are some telltale signs that can point to compacted topsoil. Your lawn will likely benefit from aeration if it can be characterized by any of the following:
- Vehicles frequently parked on grass
- Usage of heavy machinery on grass
- Clay soil that has not been recently aerated
- Lawn forms puddles during light rainfall
- Lawn damaged from children, pets and entertaining (barbecues, parties, etc.)
If your lawn has one or more of the above characteristics, aeration is necessary to reinstate growth and boost long-term health. With our lawn aeration services, we utilize a piece of advanced machinery called an aerator to remove soil plugs from your lawn. This helps to open up your lawn by removing matter and allowing the remaining earth to diffuse and spread out, thus helping it reverse any damage caused by soil compaction.
