4 Benefits of Aerating Your Lawn

If you’re like most homeowners, you probably don’t give much thought to lawn aeration until the time comes to do it. Then, you may wonder why on earth you didn’t do it sooner! Aerating your lawn is one of the most important things you can do for its health and vitality. Here are four benefits of aerating your lawn, brought to you by Simply Green Lawncare in Georgia!

Distributes Nutrients

Over time, lawns can become compacted due to foot traffic, weather conditions, and other factors. This compacting can prevent important nutrients from reaching the roots of your grass. Aerating helps to loosen up the soil and allows nutrients to reach the roots more easily.

Helps Grass Root Deeper

In order for your grass to be strong and healthy, its roots need to grow deep. If the roots are shallow, the grass will be more susceptible to damage from heat, cold, and drought. Aerating helps to promote deeper root growth and, in turn, promotes heartier grass overall.

Reduces Thatch Buildup

Thatch is a layer of dead plant material that can build up on your lawn over time. A small amount of thatch is actually good for your lawn, as it provides some protection from extreme temperatures. However, too much thatch can prevent water and nutrients from reaching the roots of your grass. Aerating helps to reduce thatch buildup and keep your lawn healthy.

Improves Drainage

If your lawn has poor drainage, aerating can help. Aerating creates small holes in the turf, which allows water to drain more easily and prevents pooling or puddling on your lawn. This is especially important if you live in an area with a lot of rainfall.

Have used Simply Green for over a year now for weed control & fertilization. Their service & products have helped improve the appearance & health of my grass in this short time. Taffari has been the technician the last few visits and he is great - super knowledgeable & able to answer my questions. On the last visit Taffari had the service manager reach out on a concern and it was addressed & resolved the same day.
