When your Rochester-area lawn’s growth is stunted and brown spots appear, there could be several causes. One common cause for a sharp decline in overall lawn health is compacted soil. Your lawn’s growth relies upon the consistent cycling of nutrients, oxygen and water throughout the soil. When your soil is compacted, it constricts the flow of these crucial elements and ultimately ends up starving and suffocating your lawn. With lawn aeration services offered by our team of experts at Lawn Doctor of Rochester, we help open up lawns so they can breathe again all over the Rochester, Hilton, Chili, Greece, Penfield, Fairport, Webster, Pittsford and Monroe County, NY areas for improved circulation and a healthy boost.
