Several common issues can appear in Michigan lawns, but there’s one issue that can make your yard more susceptible to nearly all the others: compacted soil. Compacted soil not only causes buildup on top of your lawn that can turn into unsightly bumps, but it also spells disaster for its overall health. At Lawn Doctor of Kalamazoo-Portage, we employ our cutting-edge lawn aeration to fight compacted soil in South Bend, MI lawns, keeping them healthier and greener over time.
The Benefits of Lawn Aeration
Effective lawn aeration does more than simply protect your yard from internal and external threats, it also boosts its overall health and keeps it looking its best in the long run. Here are some of the other important effects that regular aeration has on your lawn:
Smooths Bumpy Areas. Compacted soil makes it easier for debris and thatch to build up on the surface of your lawn, causing bumps and even spots that can be an eyesore. If you remove this debris without addressing the core issues that allow it to accumulate, it can easily happen again. Our aeration treatments fight the root cause of uneven areas in your yard by improving the overall composition of your soil. By relieving the compression under the surface of your soil, we’ll prevent thatch from building up over time.
Makes Fertilization More Effective. Fertilization is an essential part of keeping your lawn healthy, but it’s made much less effective when your lawn’s soil is compacted. Nutrients have a hard time circulating throughout compacted soil, meaning more fertilization treatments are required to give your yard the nutrients it needs to thrive. We break compacted soil apart with our aeration treatments to create space under the surface of your lawn and boost the effectiveness of fertilization treatments.
