Why Should I Use A Lawn Aerator
Using a lawn aerator helps to add oxygen to your soil. Lawns that have been compacted through heavy use or poor drainage will benefit greatly from regular use of a lawn aerator, as will soil that has heavy clay content.
Compaction of the soil causes several problems:
- It reduces the oxygen needed by grass roots in order to grow.
- It makes it difficult for roots to absorb water and nutrients from the soil
- It creates a physical barrier that stunts the healthy growth of grass roots.
Benefits of using a lawn aerator include:
- A welcomed increase in the microorganisms that help to decompose thatch build up.
- Greatly increases the absorption of water, nutrients and oxygen by grass roots.
- Improvement in the overall growth and development of the root system.
- Prevention of run-off when applying lawn fertilizer or pesticides to your lawn.
When Should I Use A Lawn Aerator
The best time to aerate your lawn depends on the type of grass and your soil type. Cool season grasses like fescue should be aerated from late summer to early fall. Warm season grasses like Bermuda should be aerated during the late part of spring to early summer. If you are using a liquid lawn aerator, you can do this any time. In addition, if you have clay soil, you will need to use a lawn aerator twice a year. Typically this will be during the spring and during the fall. If your soil is sandy you will only need to aerate once a year, either during the spring time or in the fall. However, using a liquid lawn aerator like LazyMan can actually aggregate sandy soil to help it hold water better which makes it a very effective lawn aerator.
