Getting your grass into great shape requires a few essentials. Beyond fertilizing and watering, lawn aeration is also an important task for homeowners across the Palm Coast, FL area to add to their to-do lists. This is because as yards get used – whether from foot or vehicle traffic – pressure is put on the soil, causing compaction. Heavy thatch can also grow on the surface, stopping grass roots from getting enough water, oxygen, and nutrients. That’s where Lawn Doctor of Daytona Beach can help with aeration services.
Lawn Aeration: The Benefits for Yards in the Palm Coast Area
There are several aeration methods local homeowners can put to use in their yards. However, at Lawn Doctor of Daytona Beach, we always depend on the time-tested and industry-leading core aeration approach.
With it, our equipment digs out small, evenly spaced plugs from the soil. This creates pockets for nutrients and water to soak in and percolate through to the root zone. At the same time, the stifling layer of heavy thatch is broken up and begins to decompose. Airflow in the soil is also dramatically boosted as soil compaction is eased.
Thanks to this process, your lawn will benefit by being able to:
- More efficiently take in key essentials, from water to nutrients
- Develop a more extensive root structure
- Ward off pests, weeds, and diseases more effectively
- Better manage through seasonal stress, like drought
