Just like you, your lawn needs air, water, and nutrients.
Did you know that soil compaction and thatch buildup is one of the most harmful things for your grass? Did you know that one of the most important things you can do to have a healthy lawn is to have it “core aerated”? At Koehn’s Lawn Care, in addition our other lawn care services, we’re happy to provide this lawn aerating service, however maybe you’d like to learn a bit more about what lawn core aeration is?
What is Lawn Core Aeration?
Over time, our Florida sun’s harsh heat, foot traffic, and even rain, among other environmental factors, can lead to soil compaction and the creation of a dense layer of impermeable, dead grass and roots known as “thatch”. This actual barrier will keep water, air, and nutrients from feeding your lawn, When this occurs, penetrating the soil and reaching your grass roots becomes very difficult and your grass will suffer.
Core Aeration, aka Lawn Aerating, is a method we use to help alleviate harmful soil compaction. We have a special machine, known as a Core Aerator, that we can use to remove cores (also called “plugs”), of soil from your lawn, allowing the beneficial nutrients to easily get to your lawn’s root system. When this happens, your grass will have room to grow in a healthy way, resulting in a renewed, vigorous growth, a stronger root system, and a thicker, fuller lawn, giving you the visual results you’ve been wanting.
As an added benefit, the cores that we remove from your lawn will actually break down and provide more beneficial nutrients to your lawn. What was originally a bad thing for your lawn can actually be used to feed your lawn! How great is that?
