A yard with tightly packed soil can suffer from a wide range of unsavory side effects, including a general and consistent decline in lawn health. To get your lawn back on track to healthy growth, it needs regular lawn aeration to break up the soil and allow for more consistent circulation of the elements your plants need to survive, grow and develop strong root systems. At Lawn Doctor of Spokane, we offer our lawn aeration service to neighboring home and business owners in the Spokane Valley, Spokane, Liberty Lake, Millwood, Otis, Orchards and Greenacres, WA areas.
What is Lawn Aeration?
When your lawn’s growth slows or stops because of tightly compacted soil, aeration is the first step towards getting it back on the road to consistent health. Lawn aeration can come in a few shapes and sizes, but the essential principle is the puncturing and loosening of the top layers of soil. This soil decompression allows heat, oxygen, water and nutrients to more freely circulate throughout the soil, while also freeing up space for roots to develop. In the aeration service we provide at Lawn Doctor of Spokane, we use a piece of equipment called an aerator to remove cores of soil from your lawn.
