Lawn aeration is an often overlooked but one of the most beneficial things you can do for your lawn. When core aerating a lawn the aerator penetrates the soil pulling up 1-3″ plugs. This immediately helps break down thatch and loosen compaction in the soil, especially clay soils like we have here in Ohio. The openings allow air and water and nutrients to penetrate deeper into the root system. This increases the amount of oxygen in the soil, leading to better grass growth, stronger roots, and improved overall health of your lawn. Aerating your lawn annually will help reduce compaction, provide better drainage and improve nutrient availability for your grass.
