The Importance of Spring Lawn Aeration

Is it really necessary to aerate a lawn? The answer is, absolutely!


Warren, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/28/2016 -- In early spring, many lawns have been matted down due to leftover fall leaves and the winter snow pack. Many homeowners may be considering lawn aeration, but it is important to know aeration has to be timed just right.

Spring aeration should be scheduled when the ground is moist enough to eliminate the possibility of damage by the coring tines. Never aerate if the ground is too muddy or the soil is too dry. Remember, to water in advance of the scheduled aeration if there hasn't been much snowfall or early spring rain.

Aeration allows air, water and nutrients to get down into the root structure of the lawn, thus enhancing growth and a strong root system. Law aeration also reduces thatch. A lush lawn and strong roots help to combat disease and tolerate severe weather fluctuations such as drought.

When purchasing a lawn aerator, be sure to select lawn aerators and dethatchers from quality manufacturers like Ryan, Bluebird and Classen. These brands are the top of the line in the industry! Local dealers like Power Equipment Warehouse, should have them in stock.
