​Why Should You Aerate Your Lawn?

​It is important for you to aerate your lawn in order to alleviate soil compaction, which prevents proper air, water, and nutrient circulation in the soil. Soil compaction occurs when there are too many solid particles within a space. Soil that is compacted regularly should be aerated on a regular basis because compacted soil can squish the roots, inhibiting their ability to function. Too much lawn thatch or debris under the lawn can also prevent the roots from absorbing the necessary nutrients.

​How To Tell If Your Lawn Needs to be Aerated

​Your grass can benefit from lawn aeration if:

  • Your lawn is frequently driven on. The weight of a vehicle, even movers, can compact soil.
  • Has high foot traffic. Children and pets running around the yard contribute to soil compaction.
  • Was established as part of a newly constructed home. Often, the topsoil of newly constructed lawns is stripped or buried, and the grass established on subsoil has been compacted by construction traffic.
  • Your lawn it taking too long to drain and you experience water puddling on lawn after rain.
  • Grass shows heavy wear, is thinning, starting to patch, or bare.
  • It has heavy clay soil.
  • The thatch layer is thicker than one-half inch. Thatch lies between the living grass and soil. Take a shovel to remove a slice of your lawn in order to look at grass roots in the soil. If they reach 4-6 inches deep, your lawn doesn’t have a compaction problem. If, however, roots extend only 1-2 inches, you should consider aerating.
  • Feels spongy or dries out easily. This might mean your lawn has a thatch problem.
  • ​Chances are, If your lawn has never been aerated before, it needs to done. However, to make sure it does, perform this simply lawn aeration test that can be done using a screwdriver or pencil. Place either object into the soil. If it’s too difficult, the soil is compacted and needs to be aerated.
