Lawn aeration, is this just an “extra” step like a wash, rinse, repeat? Why aerate your lawn, if you are already watering, mowing, and “feeding” it?
What is lawn aeration?
To put it simply, aeration is when holes are poked in your lawn to allow for “the good stuff” to get down into the roots. “Good stuff” includes water, nutrients, and fertilizer. Aeration improves the health of your lawn.
Let’s revisit thatch.
Thatch is the layer of dead grass that compacts on your lawn over time. It robs your grass of necessary rain and nutrients. Thatch is a thick covering that prevents the “good stuff” from getting through to the roots.
So if you still wonder if aeration is really necessary, it really is. Aeration breaks up and improves the health and beauty of your lawn significantly.
People have used anything from pitchforks to baseball cleats to aerate their lawns. However, those DIY techniques require a LOT of time on energy and aren’t very effective.
