Whether you’re caring for a residential lawn or the lawn of a commercial property in Miami Beach, lawn aeration is an essential service when it comes to maintaining healthy and green grass. The soil under your lawn’s surface can easily become compacted over time, whether due to your lawn’s unique makeup, external damage or a combination of both. With this compacted soil comes a long list of negative side effects that can damage your lawn’s grass and root systems. Aeration relieves these effects by loosening compacted soil and increasing your lawn’s permeability. At Lawn Doctor of Key Biscayne-Miami Beach, we provide relief to lawns all over the Miami Beach, Key Biscayne, Miami Shores and Aventura, FL areas.
When Lawn Aeration is Needed
Lawn aeration provides the best benefits when performed immediately prior to your lawn’s prime growing season. This season will vary from lawn-to-lawn based on the type of grass populating the lawn, and this variation will mostly depend on whether the grass is cool season grass or warm season grass. However, there are times when lawn aeration is needed outside of this recommended window. Your lawn may require additional aeration if it can be characterized by one or more of the following indicators:
- Brown spots have appeared on your lawn
- Your lawn contains excessive levels of thatch
- Grass growth has either slowed or stopped
- Vehicles are frequently parked on your grass
- Your lawn forms puddles during light rainfall
Lawn Aeration Benefits for Miami Beach Residents
Providing your lawn with regular aeration brings several benefits. One of the main benefits of aeration is the increased circulation of nutrients throughout your soil. Compacted soil can lock up the circulation of the nutrients your roots needs, and aeration restores this circulation to create an environment conducive to consistent growth. Another benefit of aeration is increased permeability. When your lawn’s soil is packed too tightly, the external elements your lawn needs can’t penetrate down to the deeper layers of soil. Our core aerators create channels in your lawn’s surface to allow oxygen, water and heat to reach the roots, yielding improved growth.
