Lawn aeration plays a vital role in keeping your lawn healthy and thriving and that's were Silverback Lawncare comes in.
What is lawn aeration? Lawn aeration is when the soil in your lawn becomes to compact and it struggles to absorb water, oxygen and nutrients. Aeration is a major factor in achieving and maintaining a healthy lawn.
With our lawn aeration equipment, it creates small 2 to 4 inch long holes throughout your lawn, making it easier for water, oxygen and nutrients to reach the roots, improving your lawn’s overall health. Even if you’ve never aerated your lawn before, now’s the time to start. We also recommend lawn aeration if your lawn has thin, bare or brown patches.
We suggest lawn aeration once a year to maintain a healthy and beautiful lawn and the best times too aerate is when it’s not extremely dry, or really wet, preferably late fall and early spring. This helps to prepare your lawn for the hot, rainy north Florida months.
What Does Aeration Do?
Aerating your lawn lets water, oxygen and nutrients reach the roots, improving your lawn’s overall health.
Aeration alleviates soil compaction and loosens soil so that roots can run deeper and grow more densely.
Your Lawn May Need Aeration If:
Rain water sheds off at a fast rate, your lawn has brown or thinning patches or grass is not thick or lush.
Any of the above means that your lawns roots cannot get the water, nutrients, and oxygen they need to grow. In compacted soil, grass roots grow very shallow.
What Does Compaction Mean?
Compaction reduces soil fertility. Lawns with compacted soil require more fertilizer, watering, and seeding than healthy lawns.
If your grass isn’t filling your lawn like it used to, or if it has lost its rich, lush green color, your soil may be compacted and in need of aeration.
