Old Dominion Landscapes, LLC. Servicing Aeration
Aerating your lawn may not seem like a priority in a landscaping project, but it is a simple procedure that can considerably increase the health and beauty of your landscape. Allow Old Dominion Landscapes, LLC.’s professional core aerators to serve all your aerating needs.
Lawn aeration can improve air and water circulation to your grass’s root system, improving the overall health of your lawn. Most lawns will need this done at least once, but ideally every year or so. Extra thick lawns, especially those started from sod rather than seed, may need to be aerated more than once. Whatever your needs, our lawn experts have you covered for commercial and residential green spaces. Call us today to discuss your lawn care needs.
Lawn Core Aerator and the Benefits of Aeration
During aeration, a machine called a core aerator is used to remove plugs of thatch, dirt, and even some roots from your existing lawn. Allowing these to disintegrate into the lawn is recommended, since they provide much-needed nutrients to your space’s soil.
The benefits of this process leave small holes throughout the surface of your lawn, allowing it to receive the air, water, fertilizer, and herbicides it needs and distributes them throughout the root system. Core aeration is also a great way to reduce thatch buildup and help reduce soil compaction which can make it difficult for your roots to grow.
