Why Aerate Your Grass?
Aeration improves soil drainage and encourages worms, microfauna and microflora which require oxygen.
Lawn aeration constitutes typically of only two things, controlling lawn thatch and reducing soil compaction.
Lawn thatch is the layer of dead organic tissues that deprive the lawn from it’s much-needed oxygen, water and nutrients.
Over time, soil compaction makes it difficult for grass to root. It disturbs natural rainwater irrigation, therefore it is important to aerate the lawn.
This is especially true for lawns with high traffic. If people walk or even run over a lawn, the pressure generates compaction in the soil.
