We hear all the time how important it is to aerate our lawns. Aeration is important because it allows the nutrients to reach the bottom of the roots in the soil so that the plants and grass can thrive. The problem is we don’t always know when or why to aerate. Here are some helpful tips on how to tell if your lawn needs to be aerated.
One sign that you might need to aerate your lawn is thinning of the grass. If there have been no environmental changes such suddenly more shade or too much sunshine or not enough water, it could be soil compaction making your lawn thin. Aerating is a great way to get your soil unpacked and able to grow grass or plants. Another sign you might need to aerate is if you’re fertilizing and not seeing results. This could be because, again, the soil is compacted. Aeration will help that fertilizer do its job. Also, if you’re seeing more runoff than you used to, it may be time to aerate. If the rain level hasn’t exponentially increased but you’re still seeing more runoff than normal, it could be because of soil compaction, which can be fixed with aeration.
