Core aeration reduces soil compaction and improves uptake of water and fertilizer for a healthier lawn. When soil becomes impacted and hard the roots cannot establish themselves deep into the soil therefore restricting them from obtaining proper nutrition and water thus allowing the grass to become weak and vulnerable to problems.
Core aeration pulls plugs of soil from the lawn usually about 3 to 4 inches deep. This process then allows the soil to loosen and make room for water , fertilizer, and air to get down to the roots more easily thus establishing a stronger, deeper root system for a healthier lawn.
St Augustine, Centepede, Bermuda, and Zoysia grasses should be aerated after spring green up.
For a healthier lawn core aeration should be done once yearly to help reduce thatch and disease.
Core Aeration & Deep Root Feeding
Deep Root Feeding
The bulk of the root system for most trees is anywhere from 3 to 4 feet from the surface. The deep root feeding fertilization process promotes water and fertilizer to move vertically deep down to the roots of trees giving the nutrition where it is needed.
