Factors ranging from kids playing tag to a season of heavy rainfall can all contribute to compaction in the soil. This stops airflow and hinders nutrients and water from getting into the root zone, weakening your lawn. In addition, thatch can grow thick over the surface of your soil, further stressing grass. But local homeowners in the Roanoke, VA area can restore health and vitality with lawn aeration.
Lawn Aeration: How it Helps Roanoke’s Yards
Lush, vibrant lawns require more than just fertilizing, mowing, and watering. At Lawn Doctor of the Roanoke Valley, we know that aeration is also essential to keep your yard in the best shape. When your soil is loose, your lawn will benefit in many key ways, including by being able to:
- Absorb higher levels of oxygen, nutrients, and water more efficiently
- Develop a stronger, heartier root system that goes deeper into the soil
- Better stand up against the threat of weeds, diseases, and heavy thatch
- Grow in thicker, healthier, and with better curb appeal
We recommend regular aeration for yards in our area. If you have clay soil, your yard experiences heavy foot traffic, or you drive or park equipment on it, it might need to be aerated every year. Other lawns can be aerated less often. However, when you work with us, we can evaluate your lawn and how you use it, all to recommend the right schedule.
Lawn Aeration Services: How Our Approach Works
We can handle the entire aeration process from start to finish. You don’t need to worry about renting an aerator or spending your weekend working in your yard. Rather, you can rest assured your lawn is being aerated using the industry’s most effective method, core aeration, along with our proprietary Turf Tamer® equipment.
With our approach, we will dig out small plugs of soil and thatch from your lawn, essentially creating pockets where more air, water, and nutrients can get absorbed by grass roots. At the same time, by removing these plugs, your soil will be decompressed, providing added space for roots to breathe and grow while reducing thatch on the surface.
Beyond the right approach and equipment, you can also trust Lawn Doctor of the Roanoke Valley for deep expertise when it comes to aeration. We understand the right times of year to aerate, depending on the types of grasses in your lawn, minimizing the risk of damage. If you choose, we can even seed your lawn after aeration to promote healthier, thicker growth and a more beautiful lawn you’ll love.
