Core Aeration

Your lawn withstands a lot of abuse in the harsh Florida sun, not to mention wear and tear from foot traffic and mowing. Core Aeration treatments improve the health of your lawn helping to keep your turf looking thick and luscious all year.

What is Core Aeration?

Core aeration, also known as ground cultivation, will help you build and manage a healthy lawn. If you are not familiar with the term, core aeration means mechanically eradicating small plugs from your lawn to reduce soil compaction to allow room for new growth.

When your soil is compacted, it greatly reduces the circulation of water and air to the roots of your turf. If that happens, you can say goodbye to your healthy and luscious green grass. Just as potted plants can become root bound in a small pot, your grass roots can become overgrown also which will directly effect the health of your lawn if not corrected.

Benefits of Core Aeration

Core aeration is reduces the thatch build-up on your lawn. Thatch is the layer of dead grass that accumulates over time from mowing and the natural growing process. If your thatch layer becomes too thick, it will create a barrier on top of the soil and rob grass of the sun and nutrients it needs. Thatch is also an open invitation to pests and disease so it’s best to keep it under control.

Performing a core aeration treatment once or twice per year is one of the key factors to maintaning a green and healthy. Loose soil is most efficient in providing vital water supply and nutrients to your grass roots. Core aeration helps loosen your compacted soil to give your turf access to vital nutrients, air and water. This will improve the overall health and appearance of your lawn, allowing it to thrive in our Florida climate.
