If you have ever stepped on a garden hose, you know that soil compaction is no laughing matter. The same principle applies to your lawn. When the soil is compacted, it prevents roots from growing deep and results in a shallower root system. This can lead to a number of problems, including poor drainage, reduced nutrient uptake, and decreased tolerance to heat and drought. Your lawn can benefit from soil aeration at the correct time and that helps to relieve soil compaction and allow your grass to grow deeper roots. By making small holes in the soil, aeration allows air and water to reach the roots more easily, resulting in a healthier lawn. So dont wait for your lawn to suffer from compaction – aerate today!
