Don’t Forget an Aeration Service!
This service is critical in the fall as the plants are busy enhancing their root zones in preparation for winter. Alleviating compaction will allow the root zone to open up and promote new growth. Aeration removes 1”-3” long cores of soil. As these cores “melt” they speed up the natural process of thatch breakdown. The holes left by aeration allow for air, water, fertilizer, and sunlight to reach the root system faster. The roots will grow toward these holes and as a result you will have a healthier, deeper root system.
