Want a beautiful lawn with a healthy, deep-growing root system? Our lawn aeration solution, offered across the Wilmington, DE area, provides the pathway. With it, Lawn Doctor of Wilmington can reduce thatch build-up, relieve soil compaction, and enable more nutrients, water, and air to nourish grass roots. Not only will your lawn look better and stronger, but it will be easier to care for, too.
Aerating Your Lawn: How to Tell It’s Time
Lawn aeration is simply the process of using a machine to remove small plugs of compacted soil and heavy thatch from your lawn. But how can you tell your soil is compacted or thatch is a problem in the first place? There are many signs and red flags to watch for, including:
- Water that’s running off or puddling
- Deficient-looking grass that’s wilting or yellowing, despite proper fertilization
- A rise in weeds and diseases
In addition, if your soil composition is clay-based, your lawn experiences a lot of everyday foot traffic, or you drive over it, these can all lead to compaction and an overgrowth of surface thatch. At Lawn Doctor of Wilmington, DE, we can assess your lawn to determine when and how often aeration is needed.
