Lawn Aeration

Lawn Aeration is one of the most beneficial treatments you can apply to your lawn. Grass often reacts so positively to the treatment, that owners are often amazed that such a simple mechanical process can produce such a visually enhancing result.

In order to create and maintain a beautiful lawn, you should use basic lawn care practices such as proper fertilizing, mowing and watering. It is also important to make sure that nutrients can reach the soil beneath your grass. Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the root zone of the lawn.

Blue Iris Lawn Care recommends mechanical Lawn Aeration as part of your Annual Lawn Care Programme. A good lawn aeration programme will:

  • Loosens the soil, reducing compaction
  • Allows nutrients, water and oxygen to penetrate
  • Promoting deeper and stronger root growth
  • Controls grass thatch
  • Helps control or eliminate moss and weeds
  • It thickens turf and increases your lawns stress tolerance

The only way to remedy a compaction problem on a lawn is by relieving the soil stress by physically loosening the soil, allowing the roots to breathe once more. This can be achieved either by putting in a considerable amount of effort and time using a manual aeration tool or by booking a suitable with Blue Iris Lawn Care.

Lawn Aeration creates tiny channels in the root zone allowing oxygen to circulate and refresh the beneficial bacteria.  This creates a healthier root zone and hence a healthier lawn. Ideally, it is best to keep your lawn properly aerated regularly to prevent soil compaction from ever becoming a problem, so even if your lawn does not show any of the classic symptoms of compaction, it will still benefit enormously from a lawn aeration treatment.
