Your lawn needs to breathe, so to speak. It needs space to draw down nutrients to ensure it remains healthy and vibrant.
Turf aeration helps prevent problems caused by compaction, such as fungal diseases, bare patches, and dryness caused by drainage issues.
What Are The Benefits Of Aerating Your Lawn?
If your turf has a thick layer of thatch, as well as tightly packed soil beneath, then you’re the perfect candidate for turf aeration.
Turf aeration has a range of benefits including:
