Finally, those of us in the Arkansas, Tennessee and Florida regions are seeing some real spring weather. And with spring weather, your lawn and flowers are really starting to grow!
This time of year, one of the best things you can do to care for your lawn is to sign up for core aeration treatments.
Aeration is the process of removing small plugs of soil from the lawn, allowing air, water and fertilizer to better nurture your lawn.
What are the top benefits to aerating in the spring?
1. Loosens hard, compacted soils
2. Improves air exchange in the soil
3. Improves water absorption
4. Stimulates a deeper root system
5. Reduces thatch
6. Accelerates soil microbe activity
Some lawns need aeration more than most!
While all lawns benefit from aeration, certain lawns need it more than others. If your lawn contains clay-based soils, you are probably in need of aeration. Clay-like soils get compacted easily and that leads to additional lawn care problems.
If your lawn suffers from heavy traffic (think weekend soccer matches with the neighbors), you also run the risk of compact soil.
Additional signs to be on the look out are: lawns that brown easily in the summer, lawns with ½ inch of thatch and water run off from rain or irrigation.
Get on the schedule before it’s too late! Call Ultra Green to sign up for aeration today!
