Not sure how aeration works? Let us explain. Aeration is the process of creating microscopic holes in the soil that help the roots of your grass better absorb water, fertilizer, oxygen, and other nutrients more efficiently. This way, your lawn has the best chances to thrive. Here are a few commonly asked questions about our liquid aeration process.
What makes liquid aeration better than traditional aeration?
In the past, lawn care companies have used mechanical instruments to manually aerate the soil. However, traditional aeration isn’t able to penetrate as deeply into the soil or balance the soil’s pH levels. Liquid aeration works at decreasing soil compaction without being disruptive or scarring the lawn. Because the treatment is applied as a liquid, we can better balance the pH levels, provide full coverage, and minimize trauma to the soil.
Why should I aerate my lawn?
Over time, the soil in your lawn can become compacted, making it difficult for nutrients like water, fertilizer, and oxygen to reach the roots of your lawn. Without easy access to these essential nutrients, your lawn can suffer. Aeration is essential to reducing soil compaction, no matter how the compaction was caused. After a professional aeration treatment, your lawn’s roots can spread out and grow stronger. Not only that, but your lawn will also become more resilient to foot traffic, heat, and even drought.
What time of year is best for liquid aeration?
Your technician will help you determine the best time to apply liquid aeration, but in general:
- Warm season turf – including Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, and St. Augustine – should be aerated between April and June.
- Cool season turf, such as fescue, should be aerated in September and October.
How quickly will my liquid aeration treatment work?
In most cases, it takes about 24 hours for the liquid aeration to begin working. Depending on the climate and humidity at the time of your service, it may take up to four days for you to notice any results. For best results, you’ll want to thoroughly water your lawn for two weeks after.
