If you are in the Great Falls area or surrounding towns and are looking for landscape maintenance services, trust the professionals at Great American Landscapes. We can help with your landscaping needs year-round. One of the services we offer is aeration. Aeration, along with proper mowing and fertilization, is important to your lawn. Aeration ensures that nutrients get spread throughout the soil and makes sure your lawn is in complete health. It allows air and water to penetrate below built up grass, or what is called a lawn thatch.
Aeration involves poking the lawn with small holes to make sure that all the nutrients are reaching the layers of your grass and soil. Aeration alleviates soil compaction. One of the main reasons for soil compaction is heavy use of your lawn. For example, if the neighborhood kids tend to congregate to your lawn to play, or your dog is constantly playing in your lawn, all that extra foot-traffic will start to compact your soil. If your home was one that was newly constructed, chances are you have compacted soil, too, because of the construction traffic that might have occurred on your subsoil. If your lawn dries out easily and has a spongy feel, it may have a thatch problem. There are ways for experts to check for this problem.
All these problems are associated with soil compaction, and can be alleviated with regular aeration. Aeration is best done during the growing season – early spring and early fall. Now is the perfect time to schedule an aeration service to be done on your lawn to be sure it’s ready for fall. Great American Landscapes has the knowledge and tools to get your lawn aerated properly.
