Does your lawn need to be aerated? What about your other Landscaping needs?

 

Today’s post is by Troy Lowe; Vice President of Development at SafeSourcing.

Spring is in the air!  The trees and flowers are blooming and the lawns are turning green, well at least it is in most places.  Is your lawn not looking as healthy as you would like?  If so, the problem could be that it needs to be aerated.  Over time the soil becomes compressed due to traffic and mowing.  Aerating is the act of poking numerous holes into the ground which allows air back into the compacted soil.  This process makes room for the compacted soil to loosen up and allows oxygen and water easier access to the roots.  How often you should aerate a lawn depends on the amount of traffic that occurs on the lawn.  High traffic areas need to be aerated more often because it will become compacted quicker than low traffic areas.  Depending on the type of grass, the aerating needs to be done at different times of the year.  Warm season lawns should be aerated in the spring and cool season lawns should be aerated in the fall.

There are several different tools that can be used for aerating and local landscaping companies offer this service as well for both homes and businesses.
