Why is important to have my lawn aerated and fertilized?
Over time, your lawn can become compacted from human activity, pets, mowing and growth. This can cause the soil to become compressed. As your lawn continues to age, the air space within the soil compacts, and less air, nutrients and water can enter the crowded lawns roots. Grass roots require oxygen, minerals and water to stay healthy. If the roots don’t receive these important nutrients, this can result in poor growth, along with the lawn becoming susceptible to deterioration from pests and fungus. Hunters can help your lawn receive everything it needs to help it become to become lush, green and healthy. Below we will discuss the various techniques we use to restore your lawn to health.
Dethatching – Clearing the way
Aerating – Restoring the breath of life
Like you, your lawn and the soil under it need to breathe. Aeration will remove small cores from your lawn’s soil, allowing it to breathe oxygen, nutrients and water to penetrate into the lawn’s root system. Many lawns have compacted soil which restricts the movement of air and water to the roots.
Aerating your lawn has numerous benefits, including:
- Improves penetration of oxygen, water, and nutrients into the soil
- Relieves soil compaction
- Helps manage thatch
- Stimulates root growth
Aerating for cool-season grasses should be done in the fall whereas warm-season grasses fare better by aeration in the springtime. The most important factor in determining the appropriate timing for lawn aeration is your lawn’s climate and geography area.
Aerating cool season lawns:
- Fall is the preferred time of year
- Aerating lawns should be completed in late fall to allow for recovery prior to dormancy
- Early spring aeration may also be performed.
- Lawn aeration should not be done during the heat of summer or during winter dormancy.
Aerating warm season lawns:
- The summer months are best after spring growth and before fall season.
- Best to avoid aerating during spring or fall seasons or during winter dormancy.
A lawn that is fertilized regularly helps it become drought resistant and better able to withstand pests and diseases. It is also far less likely to become weed infested. Depending on the lawn and the season, fertilizing is best done at 6-8 weekly intervals.
Immediately after aerating your lawn, we will administer a high-grade fertilizer, allowing the nutrients from the fertilizer to infiltrate the lawn’s roots through the core openings created earlier by the aerator. We will then ask you to water your lawn upon completion of the aeration and fertilization. This aids the fertilizer to penetrate the lawn’s roots more effectively.
Broadleaf Weed Treatment
Other Soil Treatments
Broadleaf weed control is used if needed. Lime can also be applied to the lawn to raise the pH of the soil if it is too acidic.
