Soil gets compacted for a number of reasons, from heavy clay content to high rainfall rates and foot traffic. This compresses roots down below, preventing absorption of essentials, like oxygen. Thatch can also build on the surface, blocking out light, water, and nutrients. This all leads to deficient growth, standing water, and more vulnerabilities. That’s where Lawn Doctor of Dover-Rockaway can help. We offer lawn aeration services throughout the Rockaway, NJ area that can take the pressure off turf, restoring health and strength in the process.
Aeration from Lawn Doctor of Dover-Rockaway: What are the Benefits?
Core aeration is a process that’s both straightforward and effective. We mechanically remove small cores of soil from your lawn to reduce soil compaction and surface thatch, and promote healthier root development. The plugs are left behind on your lawn, decomposing in a matter of weeks and nourishing your lawn as they do. At the same time, the holes created by the process enable nutrients, oxygen, light, and water to circulate into the soil, where they can nourish and hydrate roots.
With our aeration services, your lawn will experience a variety of benefits, including:
- Less compression and more airflow
- The space roots need to grow deeper and spread out further
- A healthier, heartier lawn, thanks to a stronger root system
- More efficient absorption of water and nutrients
- Greater tolerance to stress, from wear and tear to heat and drought
- Lighter surface thatch and less pressure from diseases and pests that like to breed in it
