greengrassAerate Your Lawn

Aerating is an activity that too often goes neglected. Aerating your lawn loosens soil and allows for more air, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of the grass. We recommend that you aerate your lawn at least once per year; two times per year is ideal. Strive to have your lawn aerated once in the spring and once in the fall.

Your grass, like any other plant, soaks up nutrients from the soil. Due to the fact that your grass blades are very close together, individual blades are in competition for the nutrients surrounding their roots. When these nutrients become sparse, your grass will thin out, and eventually, it may die off altogether. Utilizing fertilizer on your lawn ensures that that won’t happen. Grass fertilizers are designed to add these nutrients back into the dirt that supports your lawn.
