Why should you Aerate your lawn?


Oxygen is the secret to a healthy and lush lawn. Just like you and me, your lawn and the soil underneath it needs to be able to breathe. You need to Aerate to keep your lawn breathing.

By definition, Aeration involves poking holes in your lawn. But it’s not quite that simple, Aeration removes small cores of soil from your lawn to improve airflow around your plants’ roots. In addition to increasing airflow, these holes will also let water and fertilizer reach the roots of your grass more effectively, leading to a healthier lawn. 

With these little cores of soil removed, you are allowing your roots to grow, ultimately creating a stronger, healthier plant. Also, aeration can help remove thatch, preventing water and fertilizer from pooling on the top of your lawn, thereby allowing for improved nutrient absorption.

Annual aeration allows for healthy grassroots to thrive, so it’s important to aerate your lawn each year.

When you are getting ready to aerate, first, water your lawn a few days before. This will make it easier for the aerator to penetrate your lawn. However, make sure not to overwater the area you wish to aerate, as this can affect your success.

Make sure to mow your lawn before you begin the process!

You will want to rent a core aerator for effective and efficient aeration. Core aerators use hollow tines to pull out soil cores more easily. Spiked shoes or handheld devices further compact the soil.

Now take the aerator and, in a parallel pattern, begin the aeration process. It is not necessary to worry about the cores remaining on your lawn, they will decay into the soil over the next week.

Last, make sure you fertilize your lawn to enrich your soil!

I go out of my way to see my guys at Rental Country, Turnersville. They are straight talking, honest guys who go the extra mile to make sure I am ready for work. There is a Stihl Equipment dealer in the town where I live, and I drive 21 miles further to work with the guys at Rental Country. Try them out, I hope you're as happy as I am.

The people who work here are great. They get you in and out and they're very knowledgeable. They gave me some quick instruction on how to use the small piece of equipment I was renting and I was on my way.
