Caring for a newly installed or existing lawn is a more complex process than it might seem. No matter where your starting point, only the right sort of professional care and service can get you the lawn of your dreams. Instead of letting your lawn become strangled by unseen organic issues, call Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! for all of your aeration needs.
Combating Compaction & Throwing Away Thatch
If you are noticing problem areas around your lawn, aeration might just be your answer key. One of the most common reasons for dry or dead spots along your lawn is soil compaction or thatch. Both of these occurrences prevent air, water and nutrients from reaching the lower levels of the soil. Compaction is the case for compacted dirt, preventing necessary resources from reaching lower levels and nurturing new growth. Thatch has the same impact but is a layer of roots, shoots and organic debris that strangles lower growth levels. When left on their own, both thatch and compaction can cause patches of discolouration and unhealthy grass. Aeration is the act of using tools to punch through these problem areas and reach below compacted or clogged spaces. Once aeration tools have broken through, air, water and other nutrients are able to soak into the soil underneath.
Choosing Your Aeration Style
In theory, the concept of punching holes into the surface of your lawn seems pretty straight forward. In reality, this process requires further skill than taking a spade to different areas of your property. For as simple as this process sounds, proper aeration requires both tools and knowledge to get the job done properly. Whenever aeration is concerned, it is important to consider proper treatment methods, along with timing. When you want to make the most out of your aeration, it is key to have services performed first, around the spring months. Aerating near the start of growing season enables you to clear up any damaged areas or bare spots. When you call Eenie Meenie Miny Mow! for your aerating service, you have access to both manual and machine methods for your service.
