What is Lawn Aeration?

What is lawn aeration? Aerating your lawn is literally putting holes in your lawn. This simple act will deliver more oxygen to the roots and allow the soil to “breathe”; it allows more organic fertilizers and nutrients to get access to the root system; water is also able to reach the root system better and faster; it helps breath up thatch; it loosens up tight, compacted soil to allow for better, healthier growth. Aeration can be done by hand or via a power aerator.

The big argument is when to aerate your lawn. If you have a relatively healthy lawn that gets plenty of moisture, once a year is fine, usually in the spring or late summer/fall. If your lawn requires more attention than that, a second time that year would not be a wasted effort.
