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!
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.
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.

Hello, I didn't catch my service techs name today, but wanted to let you know what a great job he did today, please pass this along. His service was wonderful and he was very polite, I truly appreciate it. Keep up the good work! And thank you!
I have been with these guys for one whole season. 99.9% of the weeds are gone. The grass has never been so green. They have lived up to their name.
My lawn looks awesome and I have had neighbors walking their dogs tell me the same! Thanks Simply Green!
Simply Green always does an excellent job and are very customer oriented. The technicians are more knowledgeable than those of other companies I have tried.
Please let your staff that serviced my lawn aeration and fertilization yesterday know that they did an EXCELLENT JOB! My lawn is doing better than it ever has. And because of them and the rest of the techs that come out to my house, I'll remain a loyal customer of Simply Green. Great job!
I just had another comment this morning on how good our fescue lawn looks, which happens several times a week. I walked out in our back yard this AM and couldn't believe it was the same yard as what I dealt with last year. We have a good lawn maintenance crew that takes care of mowing and edging, and we have a good company that takes care of weeding, feeding, and shrubbery & trees. I enjoy telling friends and neighbors about your service. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Happened to be home and Ben was treating the yard. He took meticulous care in the treatment. Please convey my thanks to him.
