Aeration

Aeration

Michigan lawn aeration is one of the healthiest things you can do for your yard. It is the process of making thousands of holes in the turf to open the soil and break up thatch. The cores removed by aeration disappear into your Michigan lawn and improve thatch breakdown.

The root system of your lawn is constantly renewing itself by sending out new shoots. This new growth needs loose and open soil. If your lawn soil is heavy and compacted, the new roots stay near the surface or even in the thatch layer itself. This leads to a lawn that dries out too quickly and builds up thatch much faster than a deeply rooted lawn.

New root development is much greater in the fall than during any other time of the year and continues through most of the winter. Your lawn can recover from many kinds of stress during these fall months. Michigan lawn aeration creates the growth zone new roots need to take full advantage of the season.

Another big advantage of Michigan lawn aeration is thatch control. Thatch is the layer of living and dead stems, roots and other grass parts above the soil. When it exceeds about one half inch it becomes a breeding and incubation area for all sorts of nasty lawn diseases and insects. It is very difficult to grow a healthy turf through a heavy thatch layer. Michigan lawn aeration mixes soil cores above the thatch to speed up natural decomposition. By attacking thatch on a regular basis with Core Aeration, you can often prevent the need for extensive renovation.
