Enhance your lawns overall health and appearance by aerating!
What is Fall Core Aerating?
The process of aerating your lawn involves the mechanical removal of soil plugs from the lawn. Core aeration plugs are typically 1/2 inch in diameter and 2-3 inches long. These plugs are left on the surface of your lawn to degrade and fill the resulting holes with a less compact soil.
Why do you need Fall Core Aerating?
Soils become compacted from a variety of normal activities. These activities can include, sports play, pets, lawn mowers, rain and even irrigation. Poorly drained or wet areas become compacted much quicker. A compacted soil will result in a thinner, less healthy lawn.
