Your lawn requires a healthy combination of air, nutrients, and water to look beautiful and grow strong. If, however, compaction is in play, it could affect your lawn in a big way. Soil compaction compresses grass roots, limiting the essentials—like oxygen and fertilizer—they can absorb. It even suffocates grass roots over time, damaging your lawn. With lawn aeration from Lawn Doctor of Springfield-Lebanon-Bolivar, we can treat this problem and get your yard back on track.
The Benefits of Lawn Aeration in the Springfield Area
There are many reasons why soil compaction happens. For instance, if your soil is clay-based, it’s more prone to compaction. Likewise, if there has been a lot of heavy rain, high foot traffic, or vehicles parked on your lawn, these can also lead to compaction.
Whatever the cause, let us treat it with our core aeration service. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we will systematically cut out small soil plugs from all over your lawn. This will break through the compaction and get air, water, and nutrients flowing back into the root system. It will also break up heavy surface thatch that’s limiting fertilizer and water from reaching roots, and also harboring diseases and insects.
After aeration, the soil plugs will break down, with the organic matter disintegrating back into the soil. Grass will start to grow and fill in these holes. Over time, your lawn will benefit from aeration in many ways, including:
- A stronger, heartier root system that can grow deeper.
- Fertilization applications that work better because nutrients are reaching roots.
- Water and oxygen that circulates down into the root system, supporting a healthier lawn.
- A lawn with fewer issues and higher stress tolerance, especially from heat and drought.
If you’re unsure if your lawn needs aeration, try this test. Take a screwdriver and stick it into the ground. If there’s resistance, the soil is compacted. In addition, if your soil is clay-based, it’s prone to compaction and should be regularly aerated.
