Common Questions About Liquid Aeration
Why Aerate your lawn?
Due to soil’s natural characteristics, water, fertilizer, and oxygen often have difficulty reaching the turf’s roots to provide it with the essentials that it needs to grow and be healthy. Aeration is necessary to reduce soil compaction, creating space for chemical nutrients and oxygen to penetrate the soil. Once aerated, roots are able to spread out more and grow stronger. Turf becomes more resilient to foot traffic and better able to handle longer periods of heat and drought.
Why choose Liquid Aeration and Liquid Fertilizer?
GrassRoots chooses Liquid Aeration because of the proven science behind the technique and products and the results our customers experience. Liquid Aeration is a more effective and less traumatic method to loosen the compaction of the soil. Liquid Aeration, along with liquid fertilizers, is better at balancing the pH of the soil. In addition, the science behind these products absolutely reduces soil compaction while preserving existing turf’s health.
Is Liquid Aeration as Good as Mechanical Core Aeration?
Traditionally, lawns have been mechanically core aerated. Mechanical core aeration is not as effective as Liquid Aeration as it does not penetrate as deeply into the soil. For this reason, GrassRoots uses and recommends Liquid Aeration. Liquid Aeration is a necessary part of maintaining a healthy lawn. Liquid Aeration creates microscopic holes deep in the soil that act as sponges to absorb nutrients and retain water.
Further, Liquid Aeration provides coverage for the entire lawn. Up to half of the lawn will not access or absorb sufficient water and fertilizer. Only the holes made by mechanical core aeration will have access to the nutrients and oxygen. As it does not physically disrupt the lawn, Liquid Aeration can be done any time of the year without damage to emerging grass.
What time of year is best for Liquid Aeration?
Warm season turf, such as Bermuda, Zoysia, Centipede, St. Augustine, should receive Liquid Aeration treatments between April to June.
Cool season turf, such as Fescue, should receive Liquid Aeration treatments in September.
Following the Liquid Aeration treatment, the lawn will need to be thoroughly watered afterward and for the next two weeks for best results.
How is Liquid Aeration Applied?
The technique is in the name: liquid. Liquid Aeration involves spraying the lawn with a natural solution that increases oxygen levels and water penetration at the root. Liquid Aeration reduces soil compaction allowing grass to access nutrients for growth.
How fast does Liquid Aeration work?
It takes approximately 24 hours for Liquid Aeration to work in most cases. However, climate and humidity could delay noticeable results by four days.
Once aerated, roots are able to spread out more and grow stronger which ultimately leads the turf to be more resilient to foot traffic and better able to handle longer periods of heat and drought.
By reducing soil compaction, aeration also reduces water runoff and thatch buildup. This service should be performed every spring.
