Why do I need to aerate my lawn?

Lawn-Aeration-Denver-Lakewood Regular aeration is essential for maintaining a healthy and robust lawn. Aeration involves perforating the soil in your lawn, which allows oxygen, water, and nutrients to reach the roots of your lawn’s grass. This allows the roots to grow deeper in the soil, which makes for a strong, more robust lawn overall.

Aeration is important for two reasons: lawn thatch control and soil compaction reduction. Lawn thatch is a layer of dead organic tissue (mostly dead grasses and leaves) that prevents the lawn getting the air flow it needs. Soil compaction makes rooting difficult, and it also disrupts natural rainwater irrigation. Also, watering the lawn the night before the aeration process can make it easier to aerate a very dense lawn.

Aeration makes a considerable and measurable difference in your lawn’s sustained health and overall lawn quality. Grassy paths that incur heavy foot traffic require aeration more frequently to avoid soil compaction.

When should I aerate my lawn in Colorado?

Typically, lawn aeration should be performed in the Spring as soon as the ground thaws.

The process of aerating your lawn allows more space for air and water to reach the roots of your lawn. By regularly aerating and allowing more air and water to reach grass roots, the health and quality of your lawn increases and sustains its health longer.
