Once a year, you should have a process called aeration done on your lawn. The best time to do this is in the fall.

What is aeration?

Technically speaking, aeration is the naturally occurring process of air exchange between the soil and its surrounding atmosphere. Practically speaking, aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration. You can do this yourself by renting a machine from a local retailer, or you can have a professional lawn care service do it for you.

Aeration Benefits:

Core aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements through these means:

• Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.

• Enhanced soil water uptake.

• Improved fertilizer uptake and use.

• Reduced water runoff and puddling.

• Stronger turfgrass roots.

• Reduced soil compaction.

• Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
