At Seasonal Lawncare we use liquid aeration instead of core aeration. Core aeration can disturb electric dog fences or other buried utilities not to mention make your lawn look like it was stampeded across by a herd of cattle. With a liquid spray, we can achieve the same results without destroying roots or pulling plugs out of your grass.
Over time soil gets compacted from traffic and thatch buildup. Compacted soil won’t be able to absorb water, nutrients, or any of our lawn care products, causing your grass to brown up and die. By using liquid aeration, we can loosen up the compacted soil without having to litter your lawn with plugs of soil. Our liquid aeration service will loosen up the soil; allowing air, nutrients, and fertilizer to be absorbed into the roots. Your healthy and well-nourished roots will foster new growth and give your grass the chance to unleash its full potential.
Signs Your Yard Needs to be Aerated
Pooling Water: Thatch buildup and soil compaction can prevent water from being absorbed into the ground causing runoff. This will result in your lawn losing precious nutrients. If you see standing pools of water after a rainstorm or after you water your lawn then this may be a sign you need to aerate.
Spongy Grass: The layers of grass clippings, leaves, and other organic matter that build up under your grass is called thatch and can give your turf a spongy feeling when you walk on it. A thick layer of thatch can prevent water absorption and prevent fertilizers from being effective. It is also an excellent home for pests.
Compacted Soil: The combination of foot traffic and thatch buildup deprives the soil of water. This causes the soil to get hard and compacted. This deprives the roots of water, oxygen, and prevents their roots from growing.
When should I Aerate?
In Buffalo and the rest of New York, it is recommended to aerate your yard at least every two years and is best done during the fall. By keeping up on aerating your lawn you will see a vast difference in the quality of your lawn.
