We recommend aeration to our customers as a standard part of our yearly turf care program. Aeration improves overall turf health and is also the best method of managing thatch and soil compaction.
A thatch layer can make it difficult for irrigation water to get to grass roots. In addition, compact soils are not a good environment for grass roots to grow so they only grow shallow. Aeration is a cost-effective method to combat these conditions, improving turf grass health and saving irrigation water.
The benefits of aeration are significant but short lived, lasting only 3-4 months. Therefore, we propose it every spring as we enter the normal peak irrigation season. This will maximize the water saving and return on your investment.
We recommend aeration to our customers as a standard enhancement to our yearly turf care program.
If you haven't already approved aeration for 2019, you should be receiving a proposal soon.
