Core Aeration

Benefits from Core Aeration?                                    

  • Thatch management, helps speed up thatch decomposition and allowds water, fertilizer and air to reach the root system more easily

  • healthy grass requires thick deep roots. Aerating creates hundreds of small growth pockets that catch water and fertilizer, thus allowing roots to expand and grow deeper.

  • Soil compaction- allows  soil to decompress by removing cores of soil that will allow the remaining soil to expand, giving roots a looser structure in which to grow
