Core Aeration Services
Aerating your lawn is one of the single best ways to improve the overall health of the lawn. Core aeration removes “plugs” or small cores from the turf, which break back down after a week or so. These plugs encourage microbial decomposition of undisturbed thatch to help accelerate thatch breakdown. These plugs help revive compacted soil and completely puncture thatch build up in concentrated areas.
Aeration allows oxygen, water, fertilizer and sunlight to enter the turf and reach the root system to improve root health and encourage expansion and growth. Aeration can be done anytime the lawn is soft and in an active state of growth (typically end of spring or right away in the fall) and here at LawnCrafters of Mankato we recommend aerating on an annual basis to consistently encourage healthy root development and a healthy lawn.
