Sometimes we may look at somebody else’s lawn and ask ourselves “how the heck do they keep it so green?!” We may think that these home owners are paying a hefty fee to maintain the look of their front and back lawns. Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s not about a “hefty fee”.
The secret to a great lawn is:
A LITTLE PATIENCE
A LITTLE MAINTENANCE
A LITTLE BIT OF MONEY
A bunch of small things; that’s all!
A small investment in aerating is a great start. I say investment because anytime you invest time or money in anything; you want to see positive results! It wouldn’t be called an investment if having positive results was not the end goal.
If your goal is to have a lush green lawn with minimal to no weeds than aerating is the correct investment. It will help remove thatch and loosen the soil. These benefits will help in allowing the grass roots to expand and grow. The plugs pulled out of your lawn from aeration also help in giving lawn seeds a better chance of germination.
Save time & money
We enter stores like Home Depot, Canadian Tire, or any other big box store and when we walk by the garden section of the store we typically see grass seed bags, and fertilizer bags. Some of us purchase both bags every year and yet we only see a slight difference in our lawn. Arrggh! What are we doing wrong?!
The answer is nothing, except that you are not aerating your lawn in conjunction with the general lawn care. You see, it is essential to aerate your lawn as well as employing basic lawn care practices such as properly mowing, fertilizing and watering. It is also important to ensure that nutrients can reach the soil beneath your grass. Aeration can be an extremely vital element to a healthy lawn because it allows air and water to penetrate built-up grass or lawn thatch.
This still might seem like a bit more than you would like to handle, or spend time with. Totally understandable! We offer a variety of services with grass rejuvenation. For more information on lawn aeration or any of our services please feel free to send an email, call, or text. We will gladly answer any questions you have and provide you with free advice on property maintenance.
