A Guide To Aerating…
Like ourselves the lawn and the soil underneath it need to breathe. The process of getting air into the soil is called Aerating. do this by using a professional machine which will create thousands of holes in the lawn piercing the top layer of the soil.
Over time soil will become compacted as a result of wear and tear and weather conditions such as water logging.
Soil compaction makes it more difficult for roots to grow, which means the root takes up fewer nutrients and water, leading to poor plant growth.
On a golf course the green keepers may do this two or three times a year.
Benefits of Aerating are:
- Oxygen gets to the roots and the soil allowing it to breathe.
- Fertilizer gets access to the root system.
- Water is able to soak the soil and reach the root system.
- Helps break up thatch.
- Tight, compacted soil is loosened up allowing the root system to grow.
