Aerations are one of the best ways to get a beautiful, lush lawn. Lawn aeration involves perforating the soil to allow water, airflow, and nutrients to penetrate through to the roots. It also alleviates soil compaction. Soil compaction prevents air, water, and nutrients from getting to grassroots.

Does Your Lawn Need Aeration?
There are several different factors in determining if your lawn needs aeration. If your lawn receives a lot of traffic, either from feet or from tires, it may be a victim of soil compaction. If your lawn is facing compaction, aeration is the best remedy. If your lawn is the product of sod, aerations can also help break up the layer of sod and help integrate it into the local soil. An excessive layer of thatch can also prevent essential nutrients from getting to the roots in your lawn. You can see if your thatch is too thick by shoveling out a piece of your lawn about four inches deep. If your thatch is greater than one-half inch, aeration is recommended.
