Aeration is the process of creating holes or removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration. The benefits of aerating your lawn include improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere and promotes a healthy root system in your lawn. Lawn Care Coppell has the know how and experience to properly aerate your lawn.
Methods of Aerating Your Lawn
- Aeration: With a specialize forks or spikes shoes placing 2 to 4 in holes in the soil.
- Core Aeration: Core aeration is a type of lawn aeration whereby a machine (a lawn aerator) with hollow tines mechanically removes plugs or “cores” of soil and thatch from a lawn. Core aeration reduces soil compaction, creating a channel through which oxygen, water, and nutrients can penetrate into the soil.
- Dethatching: is the process of pulling up excess thatch from your lawn with a specialized rake. A specialized dethatching rake has sharpened tines designed to lift thatch away from soil. With a dethatching rake, use the same motion as with a traditional rake, allowing tines to dig into thatch and pulling it upward to loosen and lift thatch. Done correctly, you should feel the thatch separating from soil and see it being lifted to the lawn surface.
