After a hot and busy summer, your lawn can be a little worn out. Properly timed aeration helps to refresh and revitalize the grass in your yard by counteracting the effects of compacted soil and thatch- two conditions that often show up in the heavily used areas of a lawn. With aeration you are creating openings in the soil to help air, water and nutrients better reach the roots of your grass. In other words, you are helping your lawn to breathe. The results of aeration speak for themselves in a lusher and healthier turf.
Do you envy the clean stripes and patterns of a professional baseball field and wish you could replicate it at home? It’s actually not so hard. You can achieve the same striped look in your own yard with the right equipment, a little work and some healthy cool season grass.
