Lawn Aeration

Annual core aeration helps improve conditions for better root development by minimizing thatch accumulation, decreasing soil compaction, and improving the exchange of necessary nutrients to reach the grass roots.

How is this done? We perforate the soil with small holes to allow nutrients, as well as air and water, to better circulate within and to penetrate the roots.  This performance of aeration alleviates the compaction of soil that starves roots from necessary elements.

We offer lawn aeration either as a standalone service or as part of our ongoing lawn service programs

Lawn Thatch

Thatch is an area located between the green vegetation of the turf and the soil surface. It consists of a layer of dead and decaying turfgrass tissue derived from shoots and roots.

Most people will assume that if you do not bag your grass clippings that you will inevitably develop a thatch problem. This is not true! Grass clippings have little impact on the excess buildup of thatch. Small amounts are actually very beneficial; it helps with the turf resiliency, improves wear sesase, and insect problems. You can also have reduced development into the soil.  If there is an excess thatch problem, it will be important to have the lawn de-thatched by power raking. The best time to do this is in the spring. Please speak to your lawn specialist or call our office for more information about this or to have a core aeration added to your Base Roots program.
