Thanks to pounding rains, heavy snowfall, and children and pets running and playing, soil compaction occurs in all lawns. Just the simple act of walking on your grass can further compress conditions, all while thatch builds on the surface. When this happens, Lawn Doctor of South Shore-Cape Cod can help. As a leading local provider of lawn aeration in the Hanover, South Shore, Cape Cod, Plymouth, Hanson, and Brockton, MA areas, we know what it takes to restore health and vitality. We can loosen up soil, break down thatch, and produce a lawn that can breathe easy again.
Lawn Aeration: The Benefits for Hanover-Area Homeowners
When it comes to thatch and compaction, both stifle healthy lawns. Thatch blocks out sunlight, water, and nutrients from penetrating, while compaction squeezes and suffocates grass roots. It’s a recipe for a weak lawn that’s more susceptible to weeds and diseases.
But with Lawn Doctor of South Shore-Cape Cod, our aeration team can conquer both, all to cultivate conditions where:
- Grass roots can absorb nutrition more efficiently
- There’s improved air flow and water intake
- Your lawn is less vulnerable to issues with weeds, diseases, and thatch
- There’s enhanced drought and heat tolerance
- Grass can grow in healthier, stronger, and more vibrant
Every lawn in the Hanover area can benefit from aeration at one point or another. Some, however, require it more often than others. For instance, those with poor drainage and heavy clay soils should be aerated annually. Also, when your yard gets a lot of foot traffic, or is frequently driven on, aeration will be needed more regularly. Even if your lawn is diligently cared for, soil can still get compressed. When it is, you’ll see signs like standing water, wilting grass, and spreading weeds.
