Core AerationRoots require oxygen and other elements found in the air. When soil becomes compacted by foot, mower traffic or extensive thatch builds up, it becomes difficult for air to pass into the soil.  This creates an environment that discourages roots from spreading, which in turn affects the density of grass blades above.  Core aeration is a technique used to remove soil ‘plugs’ to help reduce the effects of compaction.  Power raking safely removes some of the thatch layer to improve the passage of air, nutrients and water.

Aeration is a service that can be added to a lawn care program or done on its own.  Often considered an exclusive service for only intensely maintained lawns, the benefits of aeration to all turf areas are considerable.
